The day is done, and the darkness
Falls from the wings of Night,
As a feather is wafted downward
From an eagle in his flight.
I see the lights of the village
Gleam through the rain and the mist,
And a feeling of sadness comes o'er me,
That my soul cannot resist:
A feeling of sadness and longing,
That is not akin to pain,
And resembles sorrow only
As the mist resembles the rain.
Come, read to me some poem,
Some simple and heartfelt lay,
That shall soothe this restless feeling,
And banish the thoughts of day.
Not from the grand old masters,
Not from the bards sublime,
Whose distant footsteps echo
Through the corridors of Time.
For, like strains of martial music,
Their mighty thoughts suggest
Life's endless toil and endeavor;
And to-night I long for rest.
Read from some humbler poet,
Whose songs gushed from his heart,
As showers from the clouds of summer,
Or tears from the eyelids start;

These guys have horns and cellos, and they're not afraid to use them. If you're looking for a Yes or Genesis clone you're out of luck, but if you want a band who take the time to stretch out and give a song time to develop you're in luck.
I'm going to change my mind about my favourite track regularly.
Oh, and flutes.

Because it is the most exquisitely seventies prog rock influenced music I have yet heard - the mix of Yes/Genesis with some King Crimson thrown in is, at times, overwhelming. (And, as a sixty year old man, the reference to Trumpton/Camberwick Green is more than welcome!) vicar888
