Aion the bands fifth and arguably their finest, revolves around the interplay between Lisa's soaring glossolalia and Bendan's baritone crooning. A range of styles are explored, from the polyphonic choral heights of "The Arrival And The Reunion" to the smooth balladry of "Fortune Presents Gifts Not According To The Book" to the Middle Eastern sensuality of "Radharc". Other standout tracks include the playful "Saltarello" a traditional 14th Century instrumental dance piece and "As The Bell Rings The Maypole Spins" a striking melodic song carried by bagpipes and Lisa's angelic voice.
