Release of 2007.
This brilliant new four-track EP from the Anglo-Dutch masters of
Neoclassical music relates to the incredible story of the Crystal
Palace, an architectural jewel in the heart of Victorian London and
itself a tragic metaphor for the rise and fall of the British Empire.
Recited alongside talented Dutch composer Michiel Spape's wonderful
score, Troy Southgate - who was born and bred in the area - begins his
tale with a beautiful description of the Palace in all its majestic
glory, before moving on to a dramatic account which deals with its
cataclysmic destruction in 1936 and, finally, a very moving and personal
epilogue which elaborates upon the heartfelt sadness he feels for Upper
Norwood's contemporary decline.
