Belfast's Lambing Season and the alt folk chorale "Peter"

The track Peter by Belfast's (Ireland) Lambing Season starts off carried by graceful hands, percussive electric guitar with serious lines and singer songwriter Gerry McCrudden's stern, yet emotive vocals. Soon the bass anchors the sound until if falls away with a wave of background vocals and then orchestral horns. You feel like you are listening to a hymn growing into a series of hymns in unison as organs and vocals swell like a choir. As the song beautifully crescendos it disappears into the ether. Peter is the alt-folk six piece band's third single from their latest album "The Quickening Of The Year".
