The music of Calverley is filled with Celtic influences and mystique, as it seeks to evoke the mood of ancient times in the land of Avalon, associated with the legends of King Arthur. Mid-tempo and slower pieces combine the sounds of harp, recorder, flutes, pipes, harpsichord, strings and frame drums. Even bagpipes are heard on "Piper's Fancy," and just the right touches of medieval flavor round out this impressionistic picture of bygone days. Lyrical and lighthearted, the spirit of stately court music is brought to life through the medium of modern technology and instrumentation.
