    Thanks Quasar. Yes, it can't be guaranteed that they'll do the same thing with Loegria, but it's good to know anyway.

    Outstanding work... words, visuals, music. Something to aspire to.

    Would be nice to know if buying it now locks in a "legacy" Albion 2, or if there's even a re-do or complete overhaul (Albion TWO) coming - and if its truly "gone forever" after today.

    It would be great if Albion TWO does come out, you can purchase it, and have the option of paying a little more for Albion 2 "legacy" - instead of the way it was done with Albion 1/ONE

    $224 for Albion 2 seems like a great deal of course though - even if you only end up using the strings and euphonuim patches imo

    It's always weird to first notice a topic when it's on page 10, that only started a few days ago. I haven't the time to catch up as I have to log in to do some more work on my day job. But it's interesting timing, as I finally got around to annotating what is in Loegria last night and comparing to other choices, and was wondering whether it was slated for an update like some of the other Spitfire material from that era.

    Overall, the library is very well recorded, fairly deep, and covers some instruments that often get neglected by other orchestral libraries, but I find it too wet even with the close mic and no others, for the most part, but figure there might be some project work where I'd need that specific ambience. It doesn't seem muddy at least. And I wonder if they have more material from the sessions that they pared down, or if an update would be a re-do like some of their other recent orchestral fare.

    Same thing for me, a bit too wet for my taste but it fits well to this specific ambient, dreamy mood.
    Couldn't resist to this offer though! And the overall palette of sounds here is pretty large, I wonder if they will release a kind of loegria 2 at some point.

    So no Albion TWO launch? Just a random retirement of Albion II and the launch of an unrelated product? Odd. Why bother retiring Albion II?

    I think Spitfire's running out of ideas. They should ask the public what we want.

    Unless I'm totally wrong, there's a hint at the end of one of Christian Henson's recent vlogs (recalling the difference Albion 1 made to SA) that they're back at Air recording another Albion?? I have a hopeful feeling that Loegria may well appear in a new guise in the near future.

    They should know pretty well what people want and what it's not on the market yet (some people say, members of Spitfire are even hiding all around in this forum). Creepy!
