Victorian Time Machine

The Victorian Time Machine, directed by Richard David Hames, was an instrumental and vocal ensemble which grew out of the Victorian College of the Arts. Composers on this disc are Guillaume Dufay, Richard David Hames, Barry Conynghim and James Fulkerson.

The Santa Maria Del Fiore Cathedral in Florence was the inspiration for "Nuper Rosarum Flores", a monody after Guillaume Dufay - for instrumental ensemble and early music consort (which is directed by Gerald English). Strong links between the original vocal piece and the new Hames work, both of which are concerned with musical space.

Barry Conyngham's "To Be Alone" is a expression of loneliness, on the isolating nature of the modern world.

The final work is "Music for Brass Instruments III" by James Fulkerson.
