Perhaps it’s the remoteness; the solace of the terrain, the sparseness of the landscape or that closeness to nature – the sea, the air and the elements that’s evoked by Richard Moult’s forthcoming set ‘Sjoraust’ for second language, that gives it that ethereal aspect that your somehow closer to the divine. Given the remit to record something that ‘documented the landscapes of the outer hebrides’, Moult captures perfectly that sense of bleak beauty, for eerie yet enchanting, ‘sjoraust III’ from this opus, is exquisitely poised and orchestrated, all at once intimate and alone, it’s a symphony that draws upon the harmony of the elements, amid their spectral opines and cavernous calls, echoes of centuries old spirits flicker and flitter through crafting ghostly chorals that accentuate that state of graceful solitude. Quite stunning if you ask me.
