For the epigram for the Conclusion to God’s Good Earth I used part of one of my own songs from many years ago.
It was inspired by one of the more beautiful parts of English landscape – the Long Mynd in Shropshire. I first visited it on a zoology field course, but a few years later I and my friend, comprising a “progressive rock folk duo” called Peculiar Lucan Source were asked to provide music for a town-wide church event in Shrewsbury. We stayed with a university friend of mine whose parents had an ancient house and played early music. The Sunday afternoon walk on the Mynd was a high spot.
