We may work for your father here, as charcoal burners and suchlike, and humping slag to surface Roman roads, but all of us in the forest and up and down the Rother river, we hate the Christian God. All very well you sayin' you care nothing for our British Gods and Goddesses, Gail, but do you care for that Christian God like your family up there at the villa?

KATE WILSON (harp), NICHOLAS MCGEGAN (flute), TERENCE EMERY and ANNE COLLIS (percussion) Produced and directed by SHAUN MACLOUGHLIN
