Linear notes - This instrumental song cycle sets out to capture the particular
mood of each of the seven marvels of the ancient world and the atmosphere of
their individual time and place in our history. Each track is prefaced by a
short narrative delivered by the actor, Garfield Morgan. The strong modern
orchestral rock style has been created entirely on digital keyboards and
features the renowned Wakeman dexterity throughout.
A good album that showcases Wakemans unique talents and understanding of
instrumental music. Kinda makes you wonder what all those albums would have
sounded like without Ashley Holt.
