Featuring an entirely acoustic lineup -- piano, cello, flute, clarinet,
trumpet and drums -- PROCESSION presents the listener with a
dynamic new sound world. Equal parts classical and progressive rock
(with a smattering of jazz), these seven instrumental compositions
are highly melodic and feature vibrant rhythms and complex
PROCESSION was composed and recorded by Dave Harrington of
Reviews of PROCESSION:
"6 stars [out of 6] ... David amazes me with his deep knowledge of
Classical and Neoclassical music and his capability to use counterpoint
melodies all alike ... This is an excellent album."
-- Vitaly Menshikov, ProgressoR
"An intriguing listen ... very melodic and dynamic and well worth the
attention of prog fans, but of particular interest to those liking
their classical references – chamber rather than symphony."
-- Jez Rowden, DPRP [Dutch Progressive Rock Page]
“The compositions are all good, Harrington writes firmly in a type of
neo-classical form, and he rolls in dissonance and cunning harmonic
constellations … enough to make us want to hear more.”
-- Tarkus Magazine [Norway] (Nr 40, March 2007)
"A good CD for those who like a certain zest of sadness and
complexity in music."
-- Michel F, ProgGnosis
"Harrington succeeds in creating a seamless fusion of rock and classical
elements with an entirely original character ... a fresh, moving,
interesting piece of 'chamber prog', which can be recommended
unconditionally to fans of the genre."
-- Thomas Kohlruß, Babyblaue Prog-Reviews
