A quote sets the tone for this ambitious, poetic work:

"...from Cook to Caedmon tides regulate things at Whitby. The ordinary octaves of people and their lives, all flows with the music of the Place, the Sea and its Tides. In the Georgian Drawing room that is England, Whitby is the Angel on the Mantlepiece."
--Tommy Randell

Charles O'Connor's rich, nuanced Resolution Suite, "Angel on the Mantlepiece" describes a time, a place and a mood as rich with tradition as it is lively and contemporary. This music of the British Isles is very much out of the ordinary.
