A Solid Album
Steve Vrana | Aurora, NE | 12/02/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If John Renbourn is capable of recording a bad album, I've yet to hear it. This is the second incarnation of the John Renbourn Group. [Fiddler Sue Draheim has been replaced by multi-instrumentalist John Molineux (dulcimer, mandolin, fiddle).] Still on board is Jacqui McShee who provides vocals on the standout track "The Plains of Waterloo." Other highlights include the eight-and-a-half minute instrumental piece "Sidi Brahim," which features flute, guitar, tabla and swalamandala. Equally impressive is the opening medley, which couples the gorgeous harmonies on "Pavane 'Belle, Qui Tiens Ma Vie'" with the instrumental "Tourdion." There are also two a cappella numbers: the group singing of "The Truth from Above" and McShee's solo rendering of "A Bold Young Farmer."Originally released in 1980, the group would record only one other album, the equally stunning live recording Live In America in 1981. If you are a fan of British folk music in general or the music of Pentangle in particular (Renbourn's previous band), this album will not disappoint. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED"
Excellent follow-up

"Excellent follow-up to the superb "A Maid In Bedlam" album. This one covers pretty much the same territory as the first, but is also a must. A gorgeous blend of medieval/renaissance British Isles music that, like "A Maid In Bedlam" must be heard."
40 minutes of Estacy!

"I have followed John Though his entire career. This is by far the best record he has ever been associated with! Half of the Pentagle musicians play on it, including the female singer par folk excellence! On this record, you will here authentic interpretations of midevil & renaissance folk music played and sung in full harmonies by the masters. I kid you not! This is an essential spin for authentic, traditional folk lovers!"
