- Celestial King For A Year by Richard Moult
9/10 Ant Staff review, 05 May 2011
As with all releases on this imprint, the packaging is lovingly created and most deluxe. On this occasion a fold out black envelope with printed wrap around closing strip containing postcard insert. The audio comes in three parts, simply labeled parts I-III. The three pieces are for string quintet, voice and electronics. Moult himself handles mellotron and electronics while Ben Sansom, John Cheshire Joiner and Isobel Found play violin. Viola duties are handled in fine style by Alexandria Lawrence and Henry Pye. The strings on the first part are really quite beautiful and handled with respect by the composer. Part II is a construction of processed string work and Jessica Constable's voice, which has a remarkable, haunting, delicate ethereal quality which is further enhanced by the layering and reassembling of Moult's post production. The final part clocks in at just over nineteen minutes and is a masterclass in restrained, stark beauty. An esssential addition to your collection if you've been following this label.
