Notes

This LP was also available as part of the six LP box set 'Avangarde Vol.4' on Deutsche Grammophon.

Recorded at Chappell Studios, London, on February 15/16 1971. Composed in 1969.

Though David Jackman is not mentioned anywhere on the sleeve, he was an active member of the Scratch Orchestra at this point and is probably one of the massed singers. Some of the other members mentioned in the liner notes are: John Tillbury, Gavin Bryars, Michael Parsons, Howard Skempton, Michael Chant, Christopher Hobbs, and Hugh Shrapnel - each of who recruited friends, family and students to swell the ranks.

This recording was also part of a reissue in 2000.
