In a work specially commissioned for Hull City of Culture 2017, Arve Henriksen relates to the love-affair-on-the-waves between Scandinavia and the hitherto unheralded Yorkshire port-town on The Height Of The Reeds. Composed alongside Elvind Aarset and Jan Bang, the music accompanied a sound walk last year, to be listened to crossing the Humber; all 15,000 tickets sold out. Jez Riley French's field recordings taken from the site provide added local detail and context and the voices and orchestra of Opera North with Norwegian poetry from Nils Christian Moe-Repstad feature. Available on CD, or LP plus CD from Rune Grammophon.
