Spring Song
A Tale 04:52
A Tale The splendor of this autumn night Across the meadows a golden light The windows gleam through the leaves Of woodbine hanging from the eaves A place of sleep, a place of dreams Far among the wooded hills There in the warmth, the fire's glow Fills the room large and low And on the spinet's ivory keys Plays its strange melodies Silence outside the quaint abode Save the rushing wind down the road Then the voices from within Bring to life the roadside inn The music plays through the pause Of laughter, joy and applause The lament, the triumph and the pain Lulled back into peace again The tales told at this roadside inn Now distant as misty dreams Written in the pages of a book Where by chance the living still may look And see the days from long ago Once flowers now beneath the snow
Willow (Jerusha's song)
Many Years Late
The Sudbury Inn The cold and constant rain Washed each window pane Made a river of the road A sea of mist overflowed The house the barns and the vane Drowned the upland and the plain Through each the oak trees high Like phantom ships went drifting by Hidden behind the watery screen The sun seen and unseen As a faint pallor in the sky cold and colorless and gray The morning of that autumn day Reluctant to begin Dawned on the silent Sudbury Inn and all the guest that in it lay Words from the poem Prelude - Tales of a Wayside Inn - part second by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Another Evening
La Saulaie
The Late Hour
Moment of Peace
Gold is Fading into Gray
Silent Ship


The Sudbury Inn is the ninth studio album by Deleyaman

Recorded between 2020 and 2022, it contains 11 tracks running 56 minutes.
3 songs’ lyrics on the album are partly inspired by the "Tales of a Wayside Inn" written in 1862 by the American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow about the real stories of seven travelers telling their tales at the Wayside Inn in Sudbury.

French-American duo Aret Madilian and Beatrice Valantin of Deleyaman were joined by six musicians during some of the recording sessions of The Sudbury Inn.
Artyom Minasyan on duduk, Eric Plandé on tenor sax and flute, Pierre Baillot on soprano sax, oud and bansuri, Madalina Obreja on violin, Benoit Fournier on drums.
Jules Maxwell who has toured with Deleyaman and who has contributed to the band’s prior album “Sentinel”, is guest pianist on the track “Another Evening”

Deleyaman is a French-American band founded in 2000 by Aret Madilian, Beatrice Valantin and Gerard Madilian. Their sound can't be pigeon-holed into a single genre, it has been described as enigmatic and poetic. They are the first alternative band to have included the ancient wind instrument, the duduk, in their permanent line-up.
