Far Black Furlong - Far Black Furlong CD
'Far Black Furlong' is a rapturous, symphonic work in six movements. The music describes tides - from the summer breeze through barley, to the shimmering stretch of a vast ocean extending to the shifting birth pangs of stars. Much of the music was recorded at outdoor locations - such as the barley fields of the Clun Forest - and is performed on acoustic instruments,with some electronic treatments. FBF is baroque oboist Mark Baigent, composer Richard Moult, dulcimer player John Letcher, the Candian flautist Amanda Votta (of the group The Floating World),Shropshire poet Bryony Lees,guitarist Ian Tengwall and Andy Cotterill on electronics.
