Listing Detail Tabs

People of Celtic culture all over ancient Europe were fascinated by lip reed
instruments, and made great horns and trumpets in many forms - including the
carnyx, a two-metre-long bronze trumpet surmounted by a stylised animal head.
One of these was found at Deskford, Scotland, in 1816 and reconstructed in the
early 1990s; it is joined here by the magnificent Tintignac carnyx, discovered
in southern France in 2004 and reconstructed specially for the current project.
A new reconstruction has also been made of the Loughnashade horn from Ireland,
with its exquisite decorated bell disc.

Recent developments in music archaeology have vastly increased our knowledge
and understanding of both the physical constructionof these instruments and
their likely playingtechniques. John Kenny has specialised in their performance
for a quarter of a century, and his newly created music explores the voices of
these instruments in solo, duo and ensemble textures, drawing upon Celtic
mythical characters, echoes of ancient ritual in modern society, and impressions
of real places in Ireland, Scotland and France.
