 Conducted by Peter BroderickA vocal ambient album by a total of 35 people, The Beacon Sound Chorus. 16-minute remix by Machine fabriek is recorded on the B side. Recommended for those who like Ian William Craig.

Utilising the harmonies of a 35 strong choir, Sunday Songs plays out with an almost religious undercurrent; the product of individuals inspired to commit a divine act of collaboration, recalling the rare splendour of a community in seamless alliance.


This is not to place the choir in an unattainable bracket however. As Peter explains, the aim of the project was simply to get as many people singing together as possible, regardless of musical experience.
occasional unguarded moments of wonder and excitement betray the true nature of the recordings, that they were not made to be works of art in their own right, but rather to serve as a snapshot of a glorious phenomena; documents of a small miracle occurring on Sunday mornings at the Beacon Sound record shop in Portland, Oregon, where for Peter the act of singing became “nothing short of a magical teleportation to another realm ”.

As well as the original choir recordings, the album also features a sprawling ambient rework from the endlessly assist Machinefabriek, which he describes as “a patchwork, connecting and expanding the more dreamlike parts of Sunday Songs into a sea of ​​voices, where it's unclear where one voice stops and the other
“His jaw-dropping reinterpretation of the source material is informed in some ways by the work of Renaissance composer Josquin des Prez.
