    One of the loveliest voices in rock music

    The best work of Renaissance never strayed far from the symphonic style of 19th and 20th century music. Scheherazade & Other Stories, certainly one of the band’s most ambitious recordings, saw the band using their classical roots to produce one of the signature albums of 1970’s progressive rock. Unlike other prog-rock groups, Renaissance eschewed much of the technology in favor of acoustic instruments and orchestral arrangements. Electric guitars and synthesizers were seldom used, giving the band’s music more of a symphonic sweep. This is not to say that Renaissance was without talented musicians. John Tout was an accomplished pianist and his work is well represented on Scheherazade & Other Stories. Jon Camp innovative bass lines often provided the melodic structures for the songs. And of course, Annie Haslam’s ethereal vocals were the musical centerpiece of the band. Renaissance was an incredibly talented ensemble and featured one of the loveliest voices in rock music.

    Even without a Gutarist

    The band lost their gutarest just before the schedualed recording of this piece. As to their nature, they used the highly effiecent skill and talent this band is noted for and performed it with just the bass player, piano, and Vocals. Of all the bands of this time periood, and even after they will be one of the most highly talented and skilled group in most generas; rock, country, pop, and jazz. The use of a noted Poet from the UK, Mrs. Theatcher, helped this group with the fantastic songs, and Mr. Dunforth with his misic skills along with the group itself teamed together to form one of the greatest bands never to make the limelight they deserved.
