Product details

Originally intended for release in 2020, both this album and the Concordia Mandolin & Guitar Ensemble were indeed eclipsed the pandemic. Now, three years late, is Concordia's sixth CD.

All works are composed by Concordia member and guitarist Michelle Nelson. Bishops Spell was commissioned by Marion Blazé (née Bishop) in memory of her parents Ida and Frank Bishop, both keen musicians. The first two movements represent them individually with soloist Will Hardy [recorder] and Darryl Barron [mandola] on Ida and Franks' respective instruments, then the third movement represents the collaborative energy of the whole family.

Eclipse was first performed in 2015 at Malvern Town Hall to a large appreciative audience, this work was a central part of the Melbourne FAME Plucked Strings festival concert.

After The Fire is a new arrangement of the composer's After The Fire album 2012. It turns the introduction material into a longer, unique movement, named Incerat that leads to the gentle, entwining After The Fire melody that grows as the movement progresses.

Jim Greer's Jig was written in memory of a founding member of the ensemble, Jim Greer.
