Recorded at the Manor except the guitar which was recorded at the Kington Studio. Mixed at Morgan Studios. The singing was recorded by the Manor Mobile in The Queen's College Hall (with the permission of the principal, Mrs. Stephanie Fierz), the Church Organ was recorded at St. Giles Church, Cripplegate.

The narration is taken from the prose gloss which Coleridge added to his poem for the 1817 edition. This composition is not intended as a literal musical illustration of the entire poem. It is rather an attempt to evoke the mood and atmosphere of certain crucial episodes. The music which opens and closes the piece (and indeed recurs throughout) is an arrangement of Tielman Susato's Basse Danse 'La mourisque' published in 1561. The song on Side 2 is my arrangement of a traditional sea-shanty 'The Rio Grande'.

The album itself comprises of two parts, Rime Of The Ancient Mariner 1 & 2. Oldfield's association with David Bedford went back to The Kevin Ayers and the Whole World band. While Oldfield was flexing his creative muscle and getting frustrated within the confines of that band he confided more and more with David Bedford and struck up a strong rapport with the keyboard player that lasted long after 1975. Remember David Bedford was depicting the mood around the Rime, doldrums, ghosts etc. all interspersed by Powell's narrative. Part two seems to lift up both in mood and in creative output not least some excellent guitar work from Mike Oldfield. Lesen Sie Rezensionen und informieren Sie sich über beteiligte Personen.

In the sleevenotes, Phil Howitt says, Bedford has interwoven layers of keyboards, often creating subtle, melodic, accessible textures. This is true. The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. Along with other poems in Lyrical Ballads, it is often considered a signal shift to modern poetry and the beginning of British Romantic. David Bedford album bestography.
