Origins

The album is an extended version of A Winter Garden: Five Songs for the Season (1995). 8 new tracks (recorded at Peter Gabriel's Real World Studios during spring 2008) were added to the original 5 songs of the 1995 EP.

A Midwinter Night’s Dream takes the place of A Winter Garden, which has been deleted from the Quinlan Road catalogue.
