Album Notes
"Coming from the same magical place as Led Zeppelin" - Paul Bielatowicz, Guitar Techniques magazine

The sound of this album was (in it's inception) clearly supposed to be sat firmly in the traditions of Celtic folk music. Evident in the rich, flowing guitar lines intertwined with flute and violin, ringing pedal sounds and sometimes rather ominous bodhrans. However, somewhere along the line, the link was clearly stretched beyond its traditional boundaries. Jonathan's love of music from outside this area becomes apparent with strange colourings from elements of classical, baroque music and dare I even say it, hard rock!

The album maintains a curious, ethereal feel of mysticism throughout as it moves through pieces in a variety of emotions: from the dark, pounding introduction of "The Demeter" and "Crossing the Third Sea" to the sensual stories and thoughts of "Never Love an Angel", "Sandwalkers" and "Clocks & Mirrors" (with vocals courtesy of guest vocalists Laura Fauvel and Karina McGrath); the light, joyful melodies of "Lotus Corset" and the jig-like "The Green Man" to the comedy of "Rat Run" or "The Alchemist's Penny" and the ever- increasing power of the centre piece "Andrasta".
