Quatrapuntal's music is a beautifully unique blend of styles, including classical, folk, world music and musical theatre elements. The group consists of Polly Green (voice) and Chris Hirst (mandora / Portuguese guitar / melodica) with James Halsey (cello) and Andrew Knights (cor anglais). The song 'Waves' is to a poem by Louise Townsend Nicholls and the ebb and flow of the sea is represented by the swells in volume heard particularly in the first section. The song uses certain techniques from minimalism, with staggered repeating patterns and fairly static harmony. It is taken from a forthcoming Quatrapuntal album.
