A rare live recording by the Gavin Bryars Ensemble made at the 2008 Punkt Festival in Norway, of repertoire that is performed by the ensemble worldwide.

A major thrust of Gavin Bryars' work as a performer is with his own ensemble, a pool of players who are those musicians that the composer has chosen to work with and who are the best interpreters of his work.

This recording is the first time that Gavin Bryars has issued a live recording of his ensemble, here a smaller group, which includes the soprano Anna Maria Friman and tenor John Potter. It was made at the 2008 Punkt Festival in Kristiansand, Norway, and has the highly acclaimed improvising trumpeter Arve Henriksen as guest with the ensemble for two pieces, one of which, Lauda 37 "Ciascun ke fede sente", was written specially for him and premiered on this occasion.

- Anna Maria Friman & John Potter, voices
- Morgan Goff, viola
- Nick Cooper, cello
- James Woodrow, electric guitar
- Gavin Bryars, double bass and piano

...and guest Arve Henriksen, trumpet
