an enchanting organ, trumpet, and fluegelhorn recording that carries the
listener to another place and time. It was recorded in Shakespeare"s
boyhood parish church (Southwark Cathedral) which is located on the south
bank of the River Thames in London, England. The small and beautifully
designed interior of the cathedral provided an intimate atmosphere in
harmony with the nature of the recording. The historical significance of
this location blends together the talents of two masterful artists, William
Shakespeare and Ian Carr, one past and one present.

Airs (That Give Delight and Hurt Not)
Carr combined the melodic timbre
of the trumpet and fluegelhorn with the organ, played by John Taylor, as
they recorded each selection between the hours of midnight and dawn on May
21, 1992. In Ian Carr"s own words, "all the pieces were inspired by words
from Shakespeare and this - plus several hours spent at dead of night in
that magnificent environment - made the whole experience a very powerful
one." Carr conceived the idea for each selection from Shakespeare"s plays.
