3 stars This is quite nice and very professional mixture of renaissance music and british folk. Played by professional musicians. Even with some warm (in English way) feeling.

So as a result we have enough static chamber music with some rock elements ( not too much).Fully instrumental album contains just four long compositions,complex enough to be placed under the "progresive rock" label.Music itself is pleasant, but not so bright to be attractive by itself too much.Nice acoustic atmosphere all around. Again, too long and too cold pieces to attract your attention for long.

You can be attracted by very balanced sound, high technigue of musicanship, nice melted baroque and English folk melodies, but ... not by album as piece of art. Possibly, very English album.

And I am affraid, folk-prog isn't my cup of tea.
