Album: Glen Campbell, See You There (Surfdog)

He's already said goodbye, of course.

Album: Case Hardin, PM (Clubhouse)

A third album by the admirable British combo fronted by Pete Gow; a sort of quiet digest of what we know about the American folk tradition's impact on rock's long odyssey, acoustic guitars, pianos and fiddles supporting Gow's voice with furrowed attention.

Album: Bach, Goldberg Variations – David Shemer (JBO)

The first thing to note in Shemer's beautifully measured Goldberg Variations is the pitch of his Franco-Flemish harpsichord, a whole tone lower than modern concert pitch.

Musician Randy Travis has been discharged from hospital following heart failure and a stroke.

Album: Natacha Atlas, Habibi: Classics and Collaborations (Nascente)

Collaborators here span from mild-mannered multi-instrumentalists (Andrew Cronshaw) to a grumpy old punk (Jah Wobble), not to mention the Wizard of Real World himself, Peter Gabriel.

Album: Medicine, To The Happy Few (Captured Tracks)

A big legend in small circles, Medicine were the first American band signed to Creation Records and were, according to Planet Pitchfork, 'the American answer to My Bloody Valentine'.

Album: Adela Diane, About Farewell (Rusted Blue)

Acoustic American folk in which a divorce is reflected upon and other historical lovers are waved farewell.

Album: Bach/Bernstein/Blitzstein, Carpentersville – Lucy Schaufer (ABC Classics)

Schaufer is the go-to gal for contemporary opera, an esteemed performer of Adams, Birtwistle and Knussen.

Album: Jacqui McShee, Take Three (Jag)

A first album in eight years by one of the emblematic voices of the 1960s English folk revival: the sheeny soprano which slipped the melodies around the tangle of instruments and styles that constituted Pentangle.

Album review: Edward Cowie, Gesangbuch (Signum Classics)

Edward Cowie draws on the natural world for compositional inspiration, echoing Gyorgy Ligeti in his interest in birdsong. “Bell Bird Motet” here mimics the sounds of Australian frogs and birds in the isolated vocal chirps and croaks of the BBC Singers which coagulate into a climactic whooping, while “The Soft Complaining Flute” relies on flautist Stephen Preston's unique “ecosonic” technique, around which six soprano voices flutter, butterfly-like.
