Our debut recording, released by Resonus Music in August 2023

APOCALYPSE sets words from Pricke of Conscience, a medieval poem telling of the last 15 days of the world, which is also depicted in stained glass in a stunning 15th century window in All Saints Church, North Street, in York.  All Saints also provides the inspiration for AT THE EDGE OF THE WORLD.  Composed in collaboration with poet Abi Curtis, this is the tale of Emma Raughton, an anchoress who lived in solitary isolation in All Saints during the early years of the 15th century, and who allegedly received visitations from the Virgin Mary.
