We were pleased to record the Portland Youth Philharmonic in concert at Portland's, Reed College. The student performers ranged in age from high school to college and reflected fine musicianship.


Our recording services were engaged on May 2 by Bella Voce, a local, twenty-two voice women's ensemble. Their contemporary repertoire was dazzling under the guidance of conductor, Margaret Green as they recorded tracks for an upcoming album


April was quite an exciting month as we hosted international Celtic folk singer, Anne Martin, from the Isle of Skye off the west coast of Scotland. Performing with her was friend and colleague, Ingrid Henderson, a fabulous Celtic harpist. Anne and Ingrid performed at services at Christ Church, Lake Oswego on April 17 as well as giving an evening concert there. They were also the special guests at two concerts put on by the Oregon Repertory Singers on April 23 & 24 at First United Methodist Church, Portland. The two packed houses enjoyed a wonderful Celtic program of the ORS under the direction of Gil Seeley.

Palatine Recordings stepped out of our usual recording roll to provide sound re-enforcement for the concerts. Putting fine vocal microphones in a sound re-enforcement application wasn't our first thought, but using a Neumann U47 as a vocal mic was magnificent along with KM88s on the Celtic harp.


The started with a bang as we continued the Anton Reicha sessions at Crystal Records in Camas, WA from January 18-22. Performed by the Westwood Wind Quintet, the more-than-a-dozen quintets of Reicha have little representation among recorded music, certainly not in their entirety. The first album, containing Op. 91, Nos. 1 & 2 is available directly from Crystal Records as CD266. The album was recorded and mastered by Palatine Recordings. The second album is currently being edited by Peter Christ at Crystal Records and will be available this summer.


We were pleased to record an album for Portland-based, Cappella Romana from January 10 - 14 at St. Mary's Cathedral here in Portland. Byzantine chant , sung in Greek, may not be what the average classical music listener has in mind, but to hear Cappella Romana is to believe. Never have we heard nine voices produce so much gorgeous tone and bring to life such deeply spiritual text. Check out Cappella Romana and treat yourself to an incredible experience next time they're in Portland. Please click on the Sessions link for photos of the Cappella Romana recording session.


We are just beginning work editing a new album for Crystal Records. Recorded by us last year, the album features violist, Carol Rodland and pianist, Tatevik Mokatsian performing a Suite for viola & piano by Oregon composer, Kenji Bunch. Also included are a number of favourites by Cole Porter and George Gershwin, arranged by Kenji Bunch. The album will be released on Crystal Records early in 2005.


The Anton Reicha sessions continue at Crystal Records on August 26 & 27 and again on September 1 & 2. The wind quintets of Anton Reicha are some of the most lovely and very under-recorded music. Do check out Crystal Records for the best in brass and woodwind recordings!


We just finished the final session at Crystal Records in Camas, WA where we recorded the Westwood Wind Quintet performing two wind quintets of Anton Reicha, a comtemporary of Beethoven. Crystal Records president, Peter Christ, is a founding member of the Westwood Wind Quintet and brings world class playing to this exciting and under-recorded music. The album will be released on Crystal Records later this year.
