In The Sound of Magnificence

The folk music of North America was born in the expressions of unsophisticated people who faced the raw and untamed beauty of mountains, plains and river beds. Most are work songs in origin, or the laments of an unjust life in bondage to man or nature....All have a plaintive, melodic line; all have a simple chord structure upon which all our present popular songs are written.

The superlative scores were arranged by Robert Lowden who has maintained the folk simplicity of each while dressing them in the magnificence of "101" Strings.


The lush magnificence and stereo depth of "101" Strings is due to a combination of factors. First in importance, is the concept of scoring for the strings. The necessity of using 101 strings instruments is to utilize various harmonies and voicings and not weaken the dynamic of quality of any one line when playing counter lines. This is particularly importance with the violins and violas, and creates a wonderful rich channel separation for stereo recording. The listener will note that a times the melody line is in full presence and possibly a full and lovely conter line is being played without sacrificing the full dynamic value of either. Secondly, the original performances have been records under the most exacting audio engineering standards with specially designed microphones with characteristics to compensate for any possible distortion from the tremendous bass frequency response in cello and string bass. Third, and of extreme importance, are the players themselves. They represent the finest musicians in Europe today. There are, in fact, eleven concertmeisters in the first chairs.
