4 stars It was by shear luck that I came across this album in a used record store back in the mid-1980s and it was what I would call spontaneous serendipity that I bought it having never heard of the band or their music until that day. I was flipping through LPs and the album cover stood out to me. After reading the list of song titles, I was intrigued enough to purchased the used LP. I put it on the turntable as soon as soon as I got home and have been enjoying many, many times ever since.

A Song for All Seasons will always hold a special place in my musical soul where Renaissance is concerned. In my opinion, I don't believe it their best prog effort; however, it has excellent production values, superb musicianship, and a couple of real prog gems, i.e. Day of the Dreamer and the title song. The album is joy to listen to and, to me, that's what makes it worthy of a 4-star rating.

Needless to say, after hearing A Song for All Seasons, I instantly became a Renaissance fan and started collecting all their previous works...back to Prologue, that is. I'm not really fan of their pre-Haslam era material.
