Parchment - Rehearsal For A Reunion

Rehearsal For A Reunion doesn’t seem to have quite the edge of their prior lps, but there are still plenty of worthwhile songs, such as their a cappella rendition of traditional ‘Golden Game’. ‘Glory Shone Around’ and Jesus On The Mainline’ both effectively work Dixieland brass into their folksy foot-stomping mandolin melodies. ‘People And Places’ and ‘Angel Voices’ also make use of horns, the latter with sort of a Herb Alpert Tijuana vibe. Brisk classical strings help to bring ‘Still Waters’ to life, but the orchestration on a couple of the ballads tends to take away some of the group’s folk edge. Closes out with a nice reworking of ‘Light Up The Fire’, which is where the first album began. Pete Yates-Round is the group’s new third member, appearing on vocals and acoustic guitar. Gatefold cover.    (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
