Product details

Music by Ann Carr-Boyd performed by Diana Weston (harpsichord) and the ensemble Thoroughbass. An eclectic collection of works in this double CD - folksongs and instrumental - for voice, violin/viola, cello, guitar, recorder, percussion, harpsichord and organ. Mostly written around the '70s and '80s for The Consort of Sydney, and enthusiastically revived and recorded here by Diana Weston and her ensemble. Inspired by the Australian outback and by the words to Flying West, written by Diana Weston, this short collection for recorder, cello and harpsichord describes the day in the life of doctors working from the base of the Royal Flying Doctor Service in Broken Hill, and has been dedicated to the Royal Flying Doctor Service.

Liner booklet includes programme notes and biographical information about the composer and performers.
