Degenerative brain diseases (Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s in particular) cause immense distress to sufferers and their families. This album is released to raise funds for research into cures, through Parkinsons UK. Both the soloists lost parents to these diseases hence their wish to support the research. They have chosen works by composers all of whom were similarly afflicted - either in themselves or their close families. Mendelssohn died at a very young age due to degenerative disease, Strauss wrote his work during a period of severe influenza and depression, and Kevin Malone and John Adams struggled to cope when their fathers both succumbed to Alzheimers.

Nous sommes en 1818 et la marine anglaise sort épuisée de trente ans d'incessants conflits. Le capitaine de vaisseau Adam Bolitho, qui vient de quitter le commandement de l'Athéna, n'aspire finalement qu'à une seule chose : un peu de tranquillité auprès de sa douce Lowenna, qu'il souhaite mener à l'autel. Mais ¿ le lecteur l'aura deviné, l'Amirauté a d'autres ambitions, et lui confie le commandement d'une frégate flambant neuve de trente-huit canons, plus armée pour la diplomatie que pour la guerre, l'Onward…

Gallicantus perform music surrounding the fascinating yet tragic story of Queen Mary Tudor’s ‘phantom pregnancy’. On 30th April 1555 the city of London celebrated the birth of a healthy male heir, but abruptly ceased the next day after the news was revealed to be nothing but rumour. There was to be no heir, with gossip and speculation surrounding the tale of Mary’s pregnancy from that day onwards. The music performed here resonates with the circumstances of the mid-1550s, including items composed outside of Mary’s reign; from the royal ceremonies in which Mary participated as queen, and music directly tied to the specific events of 1554-5.
