Welcome!

The mission of Montessori Western Teacher Training Program is to facilitate the development of the “whole” adult. Our approach is to present the Montessori Method as an open-ended system designed to foster autonomy. We support this model by providing a related group of varied experiences that are congruent, on an adult level, with the child’s experience and growth in a Montessori setting.

Bread Love And Dreams The Strange Tale Of Captain Shannon And The Hunchback From Gigha

  • Weird, mesmerising or what?! Hymn for Sylvia Most of the albums posted are between kbps, and not the top quality you will get on a cd. One thing about this album, and with acid folk music like it from the same period, is that the sense of wandering, travel and discovery is thick in both the lyrics and the innocent openness of the music itself. Folk tales, fantasy, pop culture and family weave gracefully throughout Carmen Maria Machado's harrowing yet graceful memoir of domestic abuse, In the Dream House.

    This time they did a much better instrumental job recruiting real fine musicians to back them, including The Pentangle rhythm section of Danny Thompson on acoustic bass and Terry Cox on drums. The repertoire is good, but is a bit uneven, with some weak songs among other good ones like Masquerade and Hymn for Sylvia.

    Production is very good. The cover is another great work. It seemed their recording company did almost nothing to promote them. However, it is doubtful Bread Love and Dreams could go very far with their sound: They were good, ok, but not outstanding in any way.

    And with very outstanding groups like Steeleye Span, Fairport Convention, The Pentangle and several others, not many people were interested.

    Having come to the conclusion that their label's failure to promote their material was some type of tax write-off, the Scottish duo of David McNiven and partner Angie Rew, who'd already downsized from a trio former band member Carolyn Davis contributes a slice of whimsical British folk here with "Purple Hazy Melancholy" , disbanded and reformed during the 12 months that separated this recording from their self-titled debut, once again called it a day.

    And that's a real shame. Because Bread Love and Dreams' second LP, recorded simultaneously and conceived as part of a double album with 's Amaryllis , is a promising semi-acoustic folk-pop treat of swirling African percussion, lush strings, gently piping organ and effervescent guitar picking.

    McNiven's melodious vocal delivery, finding a middle-ground somewhere between Donovan and Ralph McTell and gilded by the ethereal backing of Rew she takes lead on the excellent sultry psych-folk popsicle "Butterfly Land" and carnivalesque "Sing Me a Song" , are a perfect match for the wonderfully weird tales of biker chicks "Hymn For Sylvia" , hesitant snails "The Lobster Quadrille" and, of course, that old salty sea dog Captain Shannon.

    Folk tales, fantasy, pop culture and family weave gracefully throughout Carmen Maria Machado's harrowing yet graceful memoir of domestic abuse, In the Dream House.
