Now Where're They Off To?


Now that is a very good question indeed! We had no idea what direction this website was going to take. Usually we have some idea, at least of where we're going, but not this time, we still don't, but to a lesser degree than previously.  it goes to the heart, and that is where we'd like to go with this website, to examine just a little closer that which makes up England and its history, in this case its history through song and the written word, the usual sample links can be found in their usual place, on you right hand side of this page, some of them are not your usual ones, but that's the point to The Albion Chronicles, off our usual beaten path......Oh and don't worry, the usual gang of suspects, Ashley Hutchings et al aren't far you'll see it is the vision of Ashley and company, Show of Hands, and alot of matters musical that will colour the look of this particular site, but you knew that already..... come on, let's have a look......
