Des guerres, des alliances, des haines, des jalousies, de la fascination, de la répulsion, de l’émulation – et même, quelquefois, de l’amour : les relations entre la France et l’Angleterre, puis le Royaume-Uni ont quelque chose d’unique dans l’histoire des nations. …
In The English and Their History, the first full-length account to appear in one volume for many decades, Robert Tombs gives us the history of the English people and of how the stories they have told about themselves have shaped them, from the prehistoric 'dreamtime' through to the present day.
Recording Date 1974 - 1998. This is a superb collection. It's not just an outtakes/alternate takes/odds'n'sods set. It brilliantly catalogues Robert's history, compressing it into 5 short, absolutely essential CDs gorgeously packaged by Alfreda Benge and stacked inside a lovely plasticised blue box. After this, you really hardly need anything else.
One of the most prolific composers of electronic music in the 1990s and the New Millennium. He works primarily in the field of what is known as space music, part of the electronic and new age realms. Like much new age music, Carty's aims to inspire as well as to relax and heal. Carty says he hopes it will bring as much peace of heart to the listener as it does to himself while creating it. Carty's is a music you can always turn to to relax and restore your spirits. For those of you who are familiar with some space music, but don't know Carty's, comparisons might be useful. It lies somewhere amidst the darker and more spare or ethnic sounds of Roach, the smooth misty music of Serrie, the deep sensuous spiritual sonority of Parsons, and the bright esoteric spirituality of Michael Hammer.
