Notes

Recorded at Lambley Dumbles, near the village of Lambley, Nottinghamshire, daybreak, May 23rd, 1998.

"Part of a series of pastoral recordings inspired by the Sacred Writings of the Bahá'í Faith. This work takes the form of a walk upstream at dawn along a beautiful, small, wooded, steep sided stream valley near the village of Lambley, Nottinghamshire, UK. There are a number of small wooded valleys in the area collectively called "the Dumbles". The walk upstream ends at a small hissing gushing waterfall and the journey described, recorded and performed on a Baha'i Holy Day, May 23rd - "The Declaration of the Báb", has deep spiritual significance, water being symbolic of the Divine Presence - "Refresh my heart, O my God, with the living waters of Thy love, and give me a draught, O my Master, from the chalice of Thy tender mercy".

Part of the Autumn Records leaves CDr series, dedicated to pure field recordings and environmental improvisation.
