Title based on Colin Sturge's "Back to the Pavillion", the biography of the notorious Neil Von Runkel, the socialist baron who gave up his title and estates to work for the M.C.C. party.
This album is dedicated to all those who still champion the "old-fashioned" ideals of beauty, lyricism and grandeur in art against the tide of cynical intellectualism and dissonance.
Any resemblance between themes in "SCOTTISH SUITE" and "HENRY" from "THE GEESE AND THE GHOST" is entirely uncoincidental.
