Hiraeth is an old Welsh saying that has no direct translation into English, but it basically means ‘a longing for a home you can never return to, a home which may never have existed at all'. I only became aware of this saying halfway through recording but for me at least it conjured up the same atmosphere I was hearing in the music, it felt right and was adopted as the works title.
