All music composed and arranged by Seabury Gould with the following exceptions:
Part of “The Instruments” is based on the traditional Finnish tune “Itku Polska (Weeping Polska),” learned from Danny Carnahan.
The main melody of “The Fragile Vial” is based on a traditional composition of India called “Sargam in Raga Bhairav,” learned from Ravi Shankar.
The last section of “Like This” is a traditional Manx air or waltz from the Isle of Man (off the coast of Scotland) called “Arrane Ghelby” (the one Celtic tune on this CD). The tune is known as “Song of the Kelpie“.
