  • Description

    Recording notes : In the words of the sound recordist "The inky blackness of the cold May night is illumined only by garlands of stars seemingly hanging in the vault of the heavens. Perhaps this psectacle inspires our singer, certainly there are a myriad other vocalisers in the soundpicture. Somewhere in the void, a night mail-plane passes, its drone increasing so as almost to drown out the Nightingale. From over the waters come the calls of a Marsh Harrier. The mail-plane recedes from our little world, leaving a relative peace."
