The long-awaited cd by Beguildy (Janie Mitchell - voice, guitar, hammered dulcimer and Annemarie Summers - voice, harp, clarinet, recorders) of their song-settings of Mary Webb poems. These beautiful and haunting songs capture the essence of the rural Shropshire landscape that the poems of Mary Webb evoke. Gorgeous harmonies. Lovely arrangements. A unique and exquisite album.
