Northern Echo

Guitarist Jonathan Richards includes four of his own pieces in this interesting disc that was recorded in All Saints’ Church, Ingleby Arncliffe. The most substantial pieces on the disc are Alan Raswthorne’s Elegy and John Tavener’s only work for guitar so far, Chant, that beautifully evokes the Byzantine spirit and landscape of Greece. Both are gems. The music, well played and agreeable, will appeal to guitarists and guitar fans.
