Peacemakers news

Great news!  The Peacemakers CD is up at number 3 in the Amazon best-sellers list!  And—at long last—EMI have distributed our CDs of this work, expected since the beginning of the year.  We are sorry you had to wait so long, and did everything we could (not much!) to speed the process along: EMI is a very big machine indeed, and it is hard to influence its pace.  Another video featuring our recording sessions has now appeared on YouTube:  click here for some very respectable coverage of TRBC (link opens in a new window).
