Product details

The original idea for Reverberations came from a spectacular performance at St. Patrick's Cathedral, Melbourne during the Festival of Organ and Harpsichord in 1972. One of the pieces on the program was Cathedral I - composed for the festival by the late Ian Bonighton.

With the work, the composer had set out to "explore the sonorities available with a large building and so successful was he in achieving this aim, that a recording of the work was made by Move Records and released - along with work by Keith Humble, Ron Nagorcka and Felix Werder - under the title of Reverberations. Its successor, Reverberations Two contains an equally important selection of original works and has been recorded once again in St. Patrick's Cathedral with no less spectacular effect.

Originally released on two LPs and even quadraphonic tape in the early 1970s, this double CD set is actually a special limited edition re-issue of Reverberations One and Two, and features organist Douglas Lawrence along with a brass ensemble, voices, didjeridu and electronics.
