The Shepherd's Calendar

by The Blossom

"The Shepherd's Calendar" is a series of twelve pastoral songs, recorded entirely with accoustic instruments. This is gentle English folk-music, the soundtrack to a horror movie, a romantic dream or a pagan act of worship (perhaps all three).

Album Notes
"The Shepherd's Calendar" is the first album from The Blossom, an English-progressive-pagan-accoustic folk group founded in 2012 as an offshoot of the progressive rock band Lyrian. The title and structure of twelve songs is inspired by Edmund Spenser's work of the same name. The themes of the twelve songs are similarly pastoral and, like Spenser's poems, they seem to treat of rustic concerns, the animals of the field, the lives and loves of shepherds and the beauties of the English countryside. But all is allegory and myth. With pipes and drums, strings and voices The Blossom have reached out and tried to touch the faces of love and hate, faith and folly, joy and misery, merriment and murder.
