A profoundly modern dimension emerges from this confrontation between English works from the 17th century (Henry Purcell, Matthew Locke) and works from the 20th and 21st centuries (Philippe Hersant, Franck Martin, Thierry Pécou). Coming from highly different musical universes, each composition is, however, largely inspired by the founding themes of Shakespeares play, sometimes taking up excerpts from it.

What makes us happy? It's not what you think. Stress is everywhere. Clever marketing has led us to believe in chasing happiness down a path that doesn't lead anywhere. There is an answer. It's not a secret. An ancient formula can help.

With Voice, Alison made a radical diversion and recorded an album of songs by other composers that she loved, with the intention of concentrating on her instrument alone - minus the songwriting she was synonymous for. Voice marked a first for Alison, as it featured a classical orchestra and was produced and arranged by Academy Award winner Anne Dudley. It entered the UK album charts at No.7 and reached gold status, selling a quarter of a million copies. It showcased Moyet's eclectic tastes, and above all - her voice at its best. The Guardian described 'extraordinary tones' and 'flawless' renditions of La Chanson Des Vieux Amants and Bye Bye Blackbird.

Formed in 1984 and hailing from Rotterdam, The Netherlands, The Essence signed to UK label Midnight Music in 1985 a year after touring their homeland, and soon after released their debut 12” ‘Endless Lakes’ and their first full-length LP, “Purity”. After the favourable reception of their inaugural releases, especially within Europe, this paved the way for a successful 35-year career for the band, covered here in this 5 CD box set.

Revengepop? The prog Karen Carpenter? Barbra Streisand on acid? Bat For Lashes on a bookbinge? Whatever way you choose to describe "Confessions of A Romance Novelist", the debut album by The Anchoress, one thing’s for sure: it packs a punch. Catherine Anne Davies (aka The Anchoress) sums up the album's overall concept as "deconstructing normative ideas of love and romance", with each song sung by a different character.

As Barbra Streisand's first studio album of mainstream pop material in nine years, Higher Ground is something of an oddity. Instead of devoting herself to Broadway standards or a set of radio-oriented pop tunes, Streisand has crafted a record that she intended as a tribute to the power of music as prayer. It's an ambitious project, but for the most part it works, achieving a surprising grace. Higher Ground comprises both traditional religious songs and new material (even "Tell Him," an overblown duet with Celine Dion, vaguely touches on that theme), with grandiose arrangements by Marvin Hamlisch.

It’s hard to believe Eric Steckel is still in his 20s because he’s been ripping up the blues rock scene for over 15 years releasing several quality albums and now Steckel is releasing Polyphonic Prayer, which follows 2015’s Black Gold. One thing is for sure, Steckel returns to the blues in a big way.
