The Lark Rise Band (2008)
Back in the 1980s the BBC's adaptation of Flora Thompson's Lark Rise To Candleford delighted millions of Sunday night viewers with its endearingly quaint portrayal of a Victorian rural community. Consisting of unpublished songs from the original National Theatre project together with several new songs and readings from the text itself, like the series that inspired it, Lark Rise Revisited is either a wonderful evocation of a bygone age or sentimental nonsense depending on your point of view about such things. Fans of Vashti Bunyan will love the nursery rhyme melodies and Judy Dunlop's crystal clear voice on ballads like the gorgeous Bonny Labouring Boy, although only traditional folkies may like Poor Old Soldier and the smattering of morris dance tunes and singing children.
