Further Notes and Scribings:
The Quietened Village is a study of and reflection on the lost, disappeared and once were homes and hamlets that have wandered off the maps or that have become shells of their former lives and times.

Inspired in part by images of sections of abandoned, submerged villages and the spires of their places of worship re-appearing from the surfaces of reservoirs and lakes, alongside thoughts of dwellings that have succumbed to the natural erosion of the coastline and have slowly tumbled into the sea.

Some of the once were and lost villages which were seedlings for this body of work still stand but their populations are no more, those who lived there evicted at short notice and never to return so that their homes and hearths could be used as training grounds for those who would fight during great conflicts between nations.

Such points of reference have been intertwined with possibly more bodeful reasons for this stilling and ending; thoughts of Midwich Cuckoos-esque fictions or dystopic tales told and transmitted in times gone by and imagined/re-imagined in amongst the strands of The Quietened Village.

The music conjures roofless walls holding spirits not populations, skeletal spires pointing accusative fingers skywards, submerged shadows reflecting in water, crumbled remains wreathing a cliff’s base…” Folk Words

This evocative album offers a score for crumbled communities, abandoned villages and sunken spires, honoring history with quiet grace befitting its title.” Richard Allen, A Closer Listen

… impressively coherent. Its themes are tackled with sadness, hope and respect for the past, and will almost certainly supply prescient pointers for the future direction of nature, society and art. If the new epoch sounds like this, we may not be condemned after all.” Thomas Blake, Folk Radio UK

The album evokes a beautifully atmospheric pastoral reverie, and a ghostly sense of loss…” Jim Jupp, Ghost Box Records
