The rocky coastline of St David’s peninsular is home to a rich kaleidoscope of wildlife. It is a windy place where sea and land meet. The passing of time is via the arrivals of birds and others. People remain. The place remains. But is changed by these passings.
Through a series of short sections and wild sweeps from high to low, this song asks the listener to ride between large vistas right down into the smallest details. The listing of species of bird, insect, plants is important; part of the spell of this song.

Words by Jackie Morris
What a huge talent Laura Cannell is... A fearless experimentalist and improviser with both spirit and sensitivity.
The Church setting is perfect and obviously inspirational for her,making the pieces sound ethereal and intangible...there but not there,if you will.
Her influences may be medieval but her approach is very firmly contemporary and her playing is strong and (com)passionate.
Very highly recommended without reservation.
Wow!...I feel the strongest urge for cigarette after listening to this. An album that will leave those who go through it, spent, emotionally raw and uplifted.
More of this kind of thing please!...and Mr Lee, its time you gave us an album. Catherine M. Fox
