Into the Deep

At the end of our concerts the musicians in Epiphany move out amongst the audience to play an improvised 'blessing'. This is a very immersive and moving experience for our listeners. In response to many requests to record these blessings, we have recorded this CD of meditative music including three improvised pieces and 2 beautiful classical pieces. Our hope is that this album recaptures something of that experience which so many have enjoyed at our concerts. CD is £10 (free postage in the UK)

Release The Sound!

'Release the Sound' was recorded in 2011 when Epiphany's musicians gathered at a church in Salford with the desire to 'capture' some of the sounds and expressions that have become the hallmark of many of the events we've put on. Nearly all the music on this CD was completely spontaneous and fully improvised at the time of recording. CD is £6 (free postage in the UK)

The Journey - a dancer responds

Epiphany asked professional dancer Adam Gain to perform a live response in dance to our latest Improvisation. Adam writes: I pictured trees dripping with rain, ripples in water and the wind rushing past. After a hike around Lake Buttermere in the Lake District, I arrived just after sunset and as I started to play the music at about 10pm, the light fell, the rain set in and the wind picked up. The music felt like it belonged to that environment and I was part of the setting too.

The Journey - an artist responds

Epiphany asked artist Faith Heath to create a live visual response to our latest Improvisation from afar: 'The Journey'. This is the result. Faith writes about her experience of creating the painting: The Journey spoke to me about the highs and lows of what we experience in life. Moments and pockets of time where we feel elation and joy and then others where we feel surrounded and unsure. For me, the piece also symbolises the echo of creation as a continuing journeying through time and space.
