To everyone who added the gifts of their music to this project

Night Mist

This Night Mist album whispers a timeless story. We look on silently witnessing an epic journey of a small band of intrepid travellers on their mystical path towards self-realisation. Appearing out of the night mist in a grand ceremonial procession. Knowing there are many trials to overcome before enlightenment. Being cleansed by fire and water, solving the puzzle of asking the right question, to the loss of ego under the willow shadow, then on to grand celebrations in the red castle. Seeing fairies and magic folk rejoicing and dancing by the lakeside, and being reminded that we are all envoys with a mission of one sort or another, then falling into a beautiful silence before the clans gather to finally bring about an end to sorrows.

The Night Mist theme appeared to me in 1983 and has only now in 2022 found a musical home. I am also very grateful for those who have been gracious in giving their musical and artistic gifts that has enabled this project to reach fruition, I thank you all.
