In the ruins of a garden in rural England, in a house which was once a home, one woman searches for seeds of hope.Mike Bartlett's play Albion was premiered in October 2017 at the Almeida Theatre, London, in a production directed by Rupert Goold.'Something remarkable. Our country needs it' - Telegraph'[Has] a deeply reflective and humane quality to it: Bartlett draws his confused characters with a Chekhovian mix of wit and compassion… explores national identity through private mourning, and the meaning of the garden shifts, grows and deepens with the seasons' - Financial Times 'Scintillating… in the sometimes abrasive but always compelling Audrey, Bartlett has written a richly imagined female lead who can be mentioned in the same breath as the self-dramatizing Arkadina in The Seagull' - New York Times'A work of deeply absorbing emotional richness and symphonic density' - Independent'Fascinating, complex… what makes the play so enormously intriguing is that, as in his King Charles III, Bartlett shows us as a deeply divided people torn between the urge to preserve the past and to radically reform it' - Guardian

Battle of the Field begins with vocals from Martin Carthy and a song by Richard Thompson that is a fitting intro to the Albion Band and their music. The Martin Carthy vocals and influence are very strong throught the whole album. Track two is a lively medley of five Morris and dance instrumentals arranged by Nicol, Carthy and Hutchings. Track three "I was a young man" is a Traditional song brought to the project by Martin Carthy. It was a song he recorded on his earlier album "Shearwater". This is a song of a young man who just cannot please everybody and particularly his wife who dominates him. He begs death as a release. Track four is a short medley of two tunes, the first being "New St George" a song written by Richard Thompson. It is a calling to embrace a new England. Other songs come from Tradtional source. Once such song is track five "The Gallant poacher". This is a tale about a poaching trip that turns to tragedy when one young man is shot. Then more tragedy and murder in a grim tale on track seven "Hanged I shall be". Meanwhile track six "Cheshire rounds/the old lancashire hornpipe" is a medley that contains two cheshire rounds from Playford's dancing master, and Walsh's third collection of Lancashire tunes. And the hornpipe is a Traditional English hornpipe from Lancashire. Track eight "Reaphooe and sickle" is a celebration of harvest in a Traditional song. Track nine "Battle of the Somme" was originally written by a Pipe Major Robertson and had been learned by Dave Swarbrick from Berryl Marriott who had done much work in presenting Traditional folk music in the Midlands of England. It had been recently recorded by Fairport Convention on their album House Full.
