Spell Songs II: Let The Light In


Musical Companion piece to The Lost Words and The Lost Spells books. Ensemble musicians drew inspiration from the creatures, art, and language in the critically acclaimed The Lost Words and The Lost Spells books, written by renowned author Robert McFarlane and award-winning artist Jackie Morris (Penguin Books). "One of the other powerful things about Spell Songs, and about the Lost Words and Lost Spells books, is that they are pieces of art made with a very strong sense of ethics underpinning them and there's a political intent around drawing attention to how humans cohabit with other forms of life but the works are not polemical, they're not lectures, they're not arguments, they're not hectoring, they are kind of slower and subtler creatures, so that's a big part of the Spell Songs power" - Karine Polwart. Each "spell" conjures an animal, bird, tree or flower - from Barn Owl to Red Fox, Grey Seal to Silver Birch, Jay to Jackdaw - with which we share our lives and landscapes. Moving, joyful and funny, The Lost Spells above all celebrates a sense of wonder, bearing witness to nature's power to amaze, console and bring joy.
