Acoustic - The Collection features 54 stripped-down versions of some of the greatest hits of all time, either in the studio or live, it's all here! From Van Morrison's classics, Dionne Warwick, Duran Duran and Fleetwood Mac to contemporaries Biffy Clyro, Jamie Lawson, Jess Glynne, Jason Mraz and many others.
The music of Orlando Gibbons represents the English response to radical changes that stemmed largely from Italy in the age of the birth of opera and a move away from the contrapunctal complexities of previous centuries. Whereas the Italian tended to write gradiose and radical works such of those by Monteverdi, the English tended to write music that was stylistically old-fashioned by the standards of the times, unostentatious with its preference for the sounds of the viol consort that helped make it so intimately poetic and evocative.
This disc brings together recordings made in the 1980's as part of a reduction of three original discs down to two. At the same time, the original fine recordings have been remastered to good effect with added depth and space. This makes a particularly important improvement to the Coronation Anthems which previously came over as sonically lacking ideal breadth, depth and recorded weight in Zadok. The ears adjusted after that.
