Untold

 < Back to Portfolio

Written as a follow up to a theatre score for The Canturbury Tales commissioned that year, Alex self-released this collection of neo-medieval music, loosely based on Chaucer’s classic.  Untold is composed for late medieval instrumentation – including Alex’s own performance on the Psaltery – and is authentically performed, but with a more modern, ambient stylistic approach to recording and production. It also features performances from Sarah Peverley on harp and a choir comprised of members from the Liverpool University Drama Society.
