AS Jeffery Received the CD in the post this morning, fantastic presentation and actually receiving a part of the woodland where the album is recorded is truly touching. A great mix of ambient styles, this is my soundtrack to Autumn already - having been on constant repeat most of the morning! I shall be looking forward to future releases from Assembly Field, this is beautifully compiled. Favorite track: Savaran - The Calling.

‘The village of Thingwall in Wirral, UK was originally called Assembly Field and dates back to the 10th century. The village and surrounding areas have a strong Viking heritage and at that time a Viking parliament was held at Thingwall at a piece of land known as Cross Hill. I went to Cross Hill and made a field recording of various environmental sounds and then invited artists to create a track that contained the field recording in some shape or form, the result being The Cross Hill Recordings. A big thank you to all the artists involved’ – Phil Edwards
