Tarik O’Regan makes the perfect Xmas gift – NY Times

Scattered Rhymes

"Scattered Rhymes" by Tarik O'Regan

Looking for just the right stocking stuffer? According to Allan Kozinn at The New York Times, “Scattered Rhymes” – the 2009 CD from Heart of Darkness composer Tarik O’Regan is the perfect fit.

Ancient and modern mingle in this beautifully sung program. The title work, by the imaginative English composer Tarik O’Regan, is a (mostly) Petrarch song cycle, built on themes borrowed from Machaut’s Messe de Nostre Dame. A velvety account of the Machaut original is included, too, along with other works by Machaut, Mr. O’Regan, Dufay and Gavin Bryars. (Harmonia Mundi HMU 807469; CD); $23.98.
