Review (by Stuart Maconie in NME 26 January 1991
Similarly, vocal duo Red Byrd's collection wilfully mixes the haunting formality of 16th Century Italy with uncharacteristically lovely settings of poems by Led Zep's John Paul Jones! Unfortunately for Red Byrd, it's the use of modern guitar and bass that really catch the attention, particularly in the twisted, fractured textures of Frank Martin's'Trois Poems' (8).
Read the complete review by Stuart Maconie of all the second wave of Factory Classical releases.
