Details

With The Book of Rounds, October Project offers an album to comfort, heal, and awaken listeners.

Originally composed as “modern mantras” or plainchants for listening or joining in, these contemplative rounds, voiced a cappella, return us to the spiritual origins of all song—the merging of words and music among kindred souls, to illuminate and elevate.

Performed beautifully here by a choir specially created for this album, including members of the band, these tracks evoke the felt experiences of grace, shelter, hope amidst darkness, joy, renewal, and more.

October Project is best known for the albums October Project and Falling Farther In and includes here members Julie Flanders, Marina Belica, and Emil Adler. For more information, visit octoberprojectmusic.com.

Vocal Perfection Review by Edwina

Rating

This entire album is an uplifting collection proving the power that music--and more specifically, the voice--has. I welcome this new direction from the band, exploring a stripped sound and joining the a cappella craze. Well done! (Posted on January 27, 2016)

Such peaceful elegance, music from and for a gentler realm Review by Ronald

Rating

Rating

In a series of 21 rounds, many in a cappella-form, October Project explore thoughts and emotions of grace and beauty. The imagery is what longtime October Project fans would expect, with richly interwoven words that perfectly match the structure of these gossamer rounds. The words at times are so otherworldly that reflecting on them, listeners are drawn into the very place that October Project found itself in spiritually as they recorded this beautiful work. Highly recommended. (Posted on January 26, 2016)
