A Different Lore – The Antient Psalmody of Cumbria

 A Different Lore – The Antient Psalmody of Cumbria was recorded in 2017 – 2018 and all of the music on the CD is from Cumbrian Sources. We begin in 1739 at Home Cultram, and finish around 1850 at Coniston. Manuscripts from Troutbeck, Watermillock, Martindale, Brampton, Middleton and Skelton have also furnished us with material. The album’s title is from To a Nightingale by the Lakeland Poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge.
