Booklet to the above new recording is here

This is an interesting recording, I think; Finnissy effortlessly switching between Renaissance-era-but-with-something-not-quite-right and dissonant modern styles.

Not sure I'd listen to the whole of it in one session again, but there's plenty to enjoy here.

This is also in that style and I think rather good -- I need more time to concentrate on the new recording before commenting.

Fifth political Agenda, a piano piece, very nice IMO. Preceded by an interview.
