The Weighing Of The Heart

SECOND LANGUAGE



CD

Released: 13th May 2013

£9.99


Cécile Schott (aka Colleen) returns with a stunning new opus maximus - an absorbing fusion of the delicately spun & the rhythmically persuasive, embracing a pastoralism that is both lyrical yet rooted to the earth; at once hazily baroque yet accessible & universal.

Singing for the first time on record & to dazzling, numinous effect, the dexterous Spain-based Frenchwoman deploys violas da gamba, guitar, woodwind & Moondog-inspired percussion across a litany of finely wrought tableaux vivant songs. The combined influences of Arthur Russell, Moondog, Brigitte Fontaine & the musics of the African continent loom large in her new work.
