The Redpath/Hovey collaboration is interesting because he was a contemporary classical composer and the arrangements reflect that. Some are quite simple but a few are quite avant garde but well worth a listen. They recorded 7 Albums in all some of which are still available, Serge Hovey died of MND whilst the last one was being recorded.

There is also a film called "The Liberty Tree" which tells the story of the partnership. It was shown in the UK on Channel 4 way back soon after the channel started and I've never been able to locate it since but it was interesting and informative.
