St. Mary’s-Hardington. Somerset, England
St. Mary’s Hardington in Somerset England. This church dates back to the late 800’s (yes that EIGHT).
I recorded “You”, the last track on my CD “The Butterfly” in this church in 2007, during time off from the Soul Survivor Festivals Peter & I (Spoken Groove) played at in 2005-2007. The natural reverb within church is what you hear on the recording. This is one of my most favorite places on earth to spend time playing in. Many thank you’s to the Coates family who lived on this property at the time!
