Hughes de Courson, Lux Obscura: A Medieval Electronic Project
"Lux Obscura - an Electro-Medieval Project, is a fascinating cross-over project which brings together Medieval and electronic music, more specifically techno, and trip hop."
Jeff spotted this in a music store in Wanganui. Of course, no music store in Lower or Upper Hutt seems to have it. Current lowest price spotted: $33.99 at Marbecks

for the results of this]Lisa Gerrard & Patrick Cassidy, Immortal MemoryFrom a random blog:
"It’s a very spiritual album, with many of the tracks taking their lyrics or theme from religious works. There’s a version of the Lord’s Prayer in Aramaic (’Abwoon’), a prayer carved into the choir stalls of the Church of San Damiano in Assisi (’Psallit in Aure Dei’), and the feel of the whole album is reflective and reverential."

"The sophomore effort from the local, critically acclaimed musician. With a sixteen piece string section, and collaborating with Gramsci, Anika Moa, and Jess Chambers."
Which Jeff spotted on a TV programme, I believe... It's a New Zealand album, so it'll probably have that annoying "Copy Control" crap on it. Current lowest price: $26.95 at SmokeCDs
