The Lark Ascending | Richard King

Regular price £14.99

Richard King's journey to discover how the relationship between the countryside and music has shaped Britain's history and identity is woven like the fields that patchwork the land. 

Taking in everything from the post-war poets to the free party and acid house scenes of the late 80s, and peopled by figures such as Brian Eno, Kate Bush, Dylan Thomas and Ralph Vaughan Williams, this fascinating and illuminating book brings together the warp and weft of the landscape and of music, both artistic and political and creates a new lyrical narrative.
