5 stars Another welcome discovery through PA.

This is a very pleasant beautifully paced album taking the listener through the various moods of the seasons. I cannot agree that this album is perfection, however, it combines in almost perfect balance elements of folk, symphonic and even a gentle pop rock. My only reservation with the album is Dixie which seems incongruous to my ear.

There are two absolute prog crackers in this album. You have the benefit of being able to listen to one of them Depuis l'Automne from the stream above. Judge for yourself. I find it beautiful, and soothing. I expect great music to lift me up and inculcate an emotional response, whatever that might be depending on the genre. This album lifts me up and carries me away. THis is not achieved by complexity and virtuosity but through simple and measured progression. Chord progressions that leave you thinking: I could play that, where's my 12-string? Let's go outside and sit in the sun and relax. Unfortunately I don't have a 12 string and it's p---ing down outside as usual (typical irish weather): so back to Harmonium, crack open a bottle of wine and join in the dream of the passing seasons as night closes in outside....
