About the album
Master reedman Surman and organist Moody in the rich acoustics of Ullern Church in Oslo with a repertoire that includes original compositions, improvisations, traditional folk songs and spirituals. Howard Moody and Surman first collaborated on ‘Proverbs and Songs’ in 1996, where Moody was the conductor, subsequently also taking over the role of organist. John Surman: “I really enjoyed Howard's approach to the improvised sections and we decided that we would try and do some more playing together in the future. I continued working with Howard when he invited me to compose some pieces for the Sarum Orchestra – of which he is conductor and musical director. Eventually, after some exciting 'workshopping' sessions in Penshurst church in Kent, we were ready to record together.”
