about

This is a musical evocation of a mythical kind of Europe. It ranges from the Iberian influences of “Three Horsemen From Segarra”, to the glaciers of the Alps, as imagined in the track “Das Tal” This was inspired by a remote valley in Switzerland. You will also find everything in between, (Including morris dancing, and a take by Tolkien of an old nursery rhyme).
