This disc from Julian Anderson celebrates his residency with Birmingham's ensembles from 2001-2005.

Book of Hours, one of three live recordings on the disc, combines ensemble and live electronics in a tribute to two great glories of late medieval art - the illuminations of the Très riches heures du Duc de Berry and the Dame à la licorne tapestries held in Paris; it uses electronic sound as (in the composer's words) 'an extra colour … rather as gold-leaf might be applied in a Medieval manuscript'.
