This album is dedicated to the souls of William Lawes (1602-1645), Charles Sims (1873-1928), Louis Wain (1860-1939) and HR Wakefield (1888-1964).
All initial melodies except those noted below by Michael Cashmore, with 93 developments by David Tibet and Steven Stapleton, except:
A2: adapted from "Pavan 'The Funerals'" by Anthony Holborne (1545?-1602); A3: adapted from "Lament For Arnhem" by Calum Ruadh; A7: adapted from "Cantio ad Laudem Cantoris: Annus Novus in Gaudio" from the liturgical chant of the Aquitaine repertory; B1: adapted from the work of the anonymous composer from "Le Recueil des Plus Belles et Excellentes Chansons en Forme de Voix de Ville" (1526).
The album title is taken from the song "Beauty In Eclipsa" by William Lawes; with words by Sir Henry Moody.
The spoken text in A1 and B1 is by Louis Wain, and was written by him in pencil on the back of two paintings, made by him during his final years in Napsbury Asylum, which are in the collection of David Tibet.
Remastered in 2006. All songs © Current 93 1994/2007 and ℗ David Tibet 1994/2007.
