Folklore and fable, myth and legend, Taken Voice leads the listener down a faery path, twisting and turning the lines of storytelling and music together into a spellbinding program for piccolo, piano and narrator.

Meet with mischievous piskies, see Pan with his mournful reed pipe, hear the midnight robin sing, dance the old folk dances, and remember haunting melodies of long ago.

With music originating from the British Isles, Sarah and Pieter-Jan use a unique combination of piccolo and piano to revive fireside tales and bardic songs.

Notes from the Musicians
This CD project of Taken Voice has been in the pipeline for around a year, and in the imagination for much longer. It began with a conversation between Sarah and former teacher Peter Verhoyen after graduation. Sometimes you need someone who will suggest crazy ideas as though they are realistic ones.

There are not many piccolo albums with music from Sarah’s homeland, and so that seemed to be a good place to start. We found that music based on traditional dances and songs from the British Isles fit beautifully with the piccolo’s sound, and a love of folklore led us towards a theme surrounding old stories and faery tales.
