Stories for Ocean Shells description

Australian composer Kate Moore writes poetic, sensuous music. She often layers instruments against pre-recorded versions of themselves, building dream-like landscapes. Moore’s shimmering textures are interlaced with the austere beauty of Purcell’s consort fantasias, and crystalline harp and harpsichord solos by Couperin and Ferrabasco. Performed by Thomas Gould, Brendan Joyce, Caroline Henbest, Daniel Yeadon, Kirsty McCahon, Neal Peres Da Costa, Marshall McGuire, Genevieve Lacey.
