A long-awaited new CD from the acclaimed 12 piece ensemble Regular Music II playing music by JEREMY PEYTON JONES from recent music theatre productions and other works specially written for the ensemble.

...superb British ensemble ... rhythmic delirium guarantied (Time Out) ...powerful music (The Guardian) ...like early Baroque opera (The Observer) In Regular Music II Peyton Jones is fortunate (and shrewd) enough to draw on the talents of individualistic, dedicated performers such as Jocelyn Pook and Charles Hayward, and his scores are precise, unhurried and well orchestrated (John L. Walters - Unknown Public)
The CD is been released with contribution of the Arts Council of England and the Department of Visual and Performing arts, Nottingham Trent University.
