BARLEY RIGS is an upbeat, magical recording of songs traditionally performed during, or inspired by, Autumn and Harvest time. Selections range from lusty harvest songs such as \"The Barley Corn\" and \"The Band o\' Shearers\" to haunting divination chants (\"The Magpie\") to joyous multi-part Renaissance madrigals. Songs of barley and wine, celebration and loss, pious virtue and reckless abandon, this is Broceliande\'s most earthen concoction to date, served up with agrarian boldness and spiced with jubilant wonder.
