Rosaces 4

Description: Recording of Jonty Harrison's Rosaces 4 for four amplified voices, stereo fixed medium and four-channel tape. For the tourist, Notre Dame de Chartres may be just one more 'sight' amongst the gothic cathedrals of northern France, only notable perhaps for having more of its original medieval glass than most of the others. But why are the three rosaces (rose windows) at the Chartres considered by experts to be amongst the hour greatest ever produced? Why is the building 46°54' off the normal west-east orientation for a medieval church? Why are there no sculptures and no graves within the building? And how was a relatively small community able to erect, in only twenty-six years and with no interruptions, a cathedral with the widest known gothic vault, when work on cathedrals in wealthier cities was interrupted for lack of funds? Could it be that the outward beauty and perfection of the building are the result of something else, something hidden.....? Rosaces 4 was commissioned by Elms Concerts with funds made available by the Arts Council of Great Britain. The stereo and four-channel tapes were made in the Electro-acoustic Music Studio, University of Birmingham.
