Personnel

The Penrhos Kids (musician)

Jason, Ivan, Abigail and Briony Griffiths. Children of the owners of the Penrhos Court Hotel near Kington, where Mike often played music with Les Penning while he was working on Ommadawn.

The Penrhos Kids appear via a sample of On Horseback from the original Ommadawn, used at the end of Part Two.

Also appears in: Ommadawn


Clodagh Simmonds (musician)

Had previously been a member of Irish progressive folk band 'Mellow Candle' as well as having played Harpsicord and Mellotron on the song 'Sarah' on Thin Lizzy's 'Shades of a blue orphanage' in 1972. The group's drummer was Mike's friend William Murray. She also sang with the group Jade Warrior, alongside Jon Field (flute on Tubular Bells).

Clodagh's vocal chant from the original Ommadawn was digitally manipulated by Mike into a new one, partly using reversed segments. It appears towards the end of Part One.

Also appears in: Hergest Ridge, Ommadawn, Amarok, Tubular Bells III
