Some music for a Sunday morning. YouTube has a number of the NPR Tiny Desk Concerts up. This one features a wonderful set by Anonymous 4 with Bruce Molsky. They released an album together early this year called 1865. So far, I think it is the best album I’ve heard in 2015. I bought it the day I attended banjo workshop this summer, given by Bruce Molsky here in Toronto. I wasn’t sure what to expect. I knew the Anonymous 4 were a cappella singers and known as medieval chanters, and here they were commemorating the 150th anniversary of the end of the Civil War in America.
The recording is unlike any others I have. It’s simply fantastic!
Anonymous 4 has decided end their run as a quartet this year. Now, I’m going to have to explore their music backwards, starting with their recent – and – last recording and working back in time.
