    Instruments of joy
    'These are instruments of joy that we play for you,' sing The Owl Service at the opening of A Garland of Song. They truly make a joyful noise unto whatever Creator we might agree together in. Says Steven Collins of this, his latest labour of loving attentiveness:

    "I set out to make the most exciting English folk album since Liege And Lief - I'll leave it up to you to decide whether I actually achieved that: it's certainly a celebration of the tradition, the beginning of a joyous re-telling of our song tapestry and ultimately something I'm incredibly proud of. I sincerely hope you enjoy it.”

    I think you will.
