01/05/2006 HI-FI NEWS

Dorchester Abbey and Romsey Abbey, where these tracks were recorded, were just two of 28 venues this trio filled with acoustic music on their 2005 Tour of Sacred Places. Leader Malcolm Creese plays bass, with Tim Garland on saxes and Gwilym Simcock on piano - except on the haunting soprano-sax-led arrangement of Allegri's Miserere Mei, where he adds an atmospheric French horn. The music is mostly dreamy but varied and never vapid, the standout being Stan Tracey's Under Milkwood.

Maybe this could have benefitted from multichannel but we don't hear enough of acoustic instruments in real space today, so you've got to applaud Acoustic Triangle's efforts. Especially if they help alert more people to the danger of some wonderful buildings being pulled down. SH

01/05/2006 HI-FI PLUS

Recorded during Acoustic Triangle's critically acclaimed Tour of Sacred Places in 2005 this set was captured during performances at Romsey Abbey, Hampshire and Dorchester Abbey, Oxfordshire. Tim Garland is quoted in the notes as saying that "The building is the fourth member of our trio". How right he is.

An arrangement of Allegri's Miserere Mei opens with delicately-bowed bass from Malcolm Creese, Garland's soprano sax soaring heavenwards conveying the spaciopus acoustic of Dorchester Abbey. The trio's version of Kenny Wheeler's Everyone's Song But My Own showcases the band's virtuosity, opening with a dexterous bass solo from Creese, before Garland kicks in with a breathy and quite beatiful tenor solo before handing the reins to Simcock for some exquisite piano.

The band's strength is that they are all masters of their instruments and of subtle interplay which they demonstrate througout this set, yet never resort to overt showmanship, gaining strength from this subtlety of approach. The set closes with a lovely reading of Stan Tracey's Under Milkwood that can easily hold its own alongside the original. It's that good.

The two previous releases from this gifted trio have been hugely rewarding. This lovely set is no exception and is their strongest recorded work to date.
