The re-mastered album comes from collaboration between Iona amp; the All Star Orchestra. Recorded at a tenth anniversary concert for the band in 1999. It features some of Iona's most popular pieces of music including 'Beyond These Shores' amp; 'White Sands'. The album also includes two then new pieces in Overture and the title track 'Woven Chord'. Open Sky. 2005.
"The All Souls Orchestra" was founded in 1972 as a collection of Christian classical musicians from several professional orchestras including Glyndelebourne, BBC Concert, amp; BBC Symphony. In 1997 their conductor Noel Tredinnick suggested to "Iona" a collaboration to expand Iona's unique sound while promoting their shared faith. On May 29, 1999 at the Royal Festival Hall in London the 2 groups came together to celebrate Iona's 10th anniversary amp; to record this fine CD.I have a very good professional stereo system that can reveal hidden sounds within a CD or LP. Therefore in most of the songs the orchestral is in the background amp; the strings intermix with the keyboards. The woodwinds amp; brass come out more in certain sections adding color amp; depth to the music. The CD's inner notes states that Iona was "careful in their arrangements to retain the essential atmosphere of Iona's sound, whilst giving scope for the orchestra to enhance amp; extend the music into previously unexplored territories." In one particular song "Lindisfarne" the orchestra creates a Mahler 1st symphony 1st movement nature effect that at first listen one doesn't know what Iona song is coming up. This song is the major highlight of the CD with the most expansion of 2 very talented groups giving meaning to the title of the CD "Woven Cord".What is the Iona sound? In a past review I wrote the following:...the progressive sound of "Yes", the craftsmanship of "Happy the Man", the jazz amp; soul of "Van Morrison", the Irish Scottish gigs of "Silly Wizard", the beautiful haunting female voice of...well, not as strange as "Lisa Gerrard", maybe more like "Enya".The progressive rock group "Yes" was very talented changing time amp; rhythm at will with abstract flowery poetry, but they were rather messy or burly at their playing ability. The progressive rock group "Happy the Man" had less poetry but had a tighter cleaner approach to their music. Iona takes the poetry of "Yes" but the songs are ancient mystical Christian ideals about God, the Saints, nature amp; life. Iona is as musicaly tight amp; clean as "Happy the Man" specially with the guitar amp; drums. I wish these two progressive groups would perform together. What a CD that would make."Van Morrison" is highly known for his intermix of Jazz amp; Rock while still containing his Celtic soul. At times Iona will break off into a Jazz mode while containing a Celtic Soul."Silly Wizard" is one of the best Irish Scottish folk bands playing at lighting speed. Iona is just as fast when they play a Irish Scottish jig yet at times convert the style into modern jazz rock.Iona's main singer is Joanne Hogg. Her singing voice is not a dark as Lisa Gerrard, nor as light amp; airy as Enya, but all 3 women sing a soprano goose bumping mystical chant.Hear songs about the spiritual mystical past that your Celtic forefathers were in communion with, woven with ancient amp; modern music of many styles.
I have only listen to this CD once. I just got it yesterday. It's already one of my favorites. The orchestra sounds beautiful. Great music selection. I've shared Iona with a couple of friends and my daughter who doesn't like any of my music. Everybody likes it! Where do I sign up for the fan club?I love IONA! This is one album that I had not bought, mostly because I had all the songs on studio albums. BIG mistake! This live recording is absolutely wonderful. So glad I finally purchased it!Great cd..sum up Iona with one word... GiftedIm never disappointed with Iona's music....
Another incredible piece of work by Iona.
Iona's Woven Cord is probably one of my desert island albums. Soaring and evocative Celtic prog, live, with an orchestra (and orchestrations were by the band members themselves). Masterful musicianship all around. I dearly wish I could have been there for it, but alas in 1999 I was a poor college student and couldn't possibly fly to London for a concert.Highlights:- The first three tracks taken together are a brilliant concert opener. Man has some of everything and may be my favorite track of the whole album.- The guitar solo in Encircling is breathtaking. Listen to it, resume breathing, and then realize that he played that entire solo over one chord.- Revelation mostly nails the epic power ballad thing, with huge dramatic orchestration and of course Dave's virtuosic soloing. But the coolest part is the extended "trash can ending". The first time I've heard one done with an orchestra!- The applause at the end of the final song (Beyond These Shores, a song about Brendan the Navigator setting out on his epic journey) becomes an instrument, blending with the thunder as his ship is about to sail into the unknown. It makes for a very interesting juxtaposition of emotions at the end of the concert.
