Original Album Sleeve Notes

Reflective doesn't always mean quiet.  A much bigger atmosphere is created in this live recording of The Charterhouse Choral Society in their own chapel.  Anthony Phillips and Mike Rutherford wrote this together and both felt that the live recording held a much better atmosphere than the studio recording which was also tried. (The echoes are real).
