The production of the music on this album involves no electronics whatsoever.
Apart from where obvious (i.e. accurately timed gong strikes on Side 1) all the
music is completely improvised (as also inspired and spontaneous).

The title for this record is taken from an old Gaelic Prayer which is
reproduced here in its entirety:

deep peace of the running wave to you
deep peace of the flowing air to you
deep peace of the quiet earth to you
deep peace of the shining stars to you
deep peace of the son of peace to you

To the Holy One; the One Great INITIATOR, without Whose help none of this
music could be made, all praise and thanksgiving. May the Light of the
Spiritual Sun shine within the Hearts of All. May the Great White Spirit
bless All.

Album includes pamphlet insert with extensive notes.

Recorded at Ridge Farm Studios, Surrey on 24 track - September 1st to 3rd/ October 4th to 6th, 1980.
