Reliably informed

The second single from their upcoming live album Requiem For A Fading World, Offertorium is a sprawling and vivid seven-minute piece which incorporates piano and incredible solo soprano from Emily Brown Gibson.

The piece is rich in narrative, with Kerrin Tatman’s dextrous arrangements being brilliantly realised by the addition of live strings, creating a rich bed of sound for the intricate and complex narrative at play. Although this is only a portion of what promises to be an engaging and sprawling narrative, there is still a great sense of character and development within the lyrics, allowing the piece to truly stand on its own. All in all, it’s an immaculately crafted, engaging and imaginative hybrid of folk, classical and chamber music.
