Omega Music

This album derives from a 1998 release from Forsyth Brothers (Manchester) featuring works published in their Recorder Catalogue. It was then called 'John and Peter's Whistling Book'. For this new version, remastered in 2022, several extra tracks have been added. The album features the recorder at it's most scintillatingly bright - most of the music here, though very recent, is melodic, tuneful, often in dance form, and witty - for example Bullard's suite inspired by favorite foods from around the world. Two small forays into modernism are provided by superb pieces by Richard Whalley and Kevin Malone. John Turner is one of the world's most respected and skillful recorderists, with a long history of recordings, publications and premieres, including regular appearances with the Academy of Ancient Music, the Early Music Consort with David Munrow, English Chamber Orchestra and Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields. Peter Lawson has also enjoyed a long and illustrious career; he taught at Chetham's School of Music for almost 40 years and has a large and impressive discography to his name.
