"The Holy Quintet is a new group in Mikroton family with only one artist, namely Johnny Chang, appearing before on Echtzeitmusik Berlin compilation in 2012. Borough documents the singular meeting of Johnny Chang, Jamie Drouin, Dominic Lash, Dimitra Lazaridou-Chatzigoga, and David Ryan. The group was assembled by Simon Reynell for a one-off recording session at the Borough Welsh Congregational Chapel on February 15, 2013, taking advantage of Chang and Drouin simultaneously being in London for an installation and concert. The Holy Quintet, as the artists would jokingly refer to themselves months later, is a cross section of each artist's individual projects at that time, and shows where those varying languages overlap, as much as diverge. The result is an exciting and distinct album within each artist's oeuvre."-Mikroton
