The two Sherlock Holmes albums were conceived as a pair. The first album A Tapestry of Tales is concerned with a selection of the short stories, and the second album with the most famous Holmes adventure The Hound of the Baskervilles. In order to connect the two albums musically, themes and rhythms from the first album can be heard in the second album. For example, the first album opens with Holmes playing his violin. The second album ends with Holmes safely back in Baker Street, playing the same violin tune. Many more examples are given in the following notes.
Dynamically, The Hound of the Baskervilles deliberately opens quietly, and gradually builds up throughout its course, mirroring developments in the story. This album is best listened to at a reasonably loud volume, to allow for the wide dynamic range of the album as a whole to be experienced.
