Music: The Amazing Blondel

You might say the denizens of La Casa de Los Gatos are mightily fond of the delicate plucking of stringed instruments. Lutes, sarod, pi-pa, shamisen. We love them all. Combined with the delicate breathing of some dulcet wind instrument, say, a flute, and bringing life to a creation of Renaissance/prog rock, one achieves The Amazing Blondel.

Here in part, Fantasia Lindum:

Swifts and Swains, Leafy Lanes and God Must Doubt. It makes us long to visit Lincolnshire, the land to which this album is an homage. Lindum is the Latin name of the town of Lincoln, set in verdant Lincolnshire, as the video clip shows.
