Synopsis

Album Description
Sound & Sweet Airs (That Give Delight and Hurt Not) is an enchanting organ, trumpet, and fluegelhorn recording that carries the listener to another place and time. It was recorded in Shakespeare's boyhood parish church (Southwark Cathedral) which is located on the south bank of the River Thames in London, England. The small and beautifully designed interior of the cathedral provided an intimate atmosphere in harmony with the nature of the recording. The historical significance of this location blends together the talents of two masterful artists, William Shakespeare and Ian Carr, one past and one present. In Sound & Sweet Airs (That Give Delight and Hurt Not) Carr combined the melodic timbre of the trumpet and fluegelhorn with the organ, played by John Taylor, as they recorded each selection between the hours of midnight and dawn on May 21, 1992. In Ian Carr's own words, "all the pieces were inspired by words from Shakespeare and this - plus several hours spent at dead of night in that magnificent environment - made the whole experience a very powerful one." Carr conceived the idea for each selection from Shakespeare's plays. The title, Sound & Sweet Airs (That Give Delight and Hurt Not), was taken from The Tempest.
