the poetry goes beyond simple observation into deeply personal & profound lore, & her intricate finger-picking combine with serene vocals to create a picturesque series of evocative songs.

Offering some of her first original compositions, ‘The Time Has Come’ was a break from tradition in more ways than one for Anne Briggs. Where previous recordings displayed the unaccompanied melodies of her voice, this album brings additional instrumentation in the form of guitar & bouzouki. The result is that her vocals are heightened by her plucked strings providing the perfect foil for her crystalline inflection. To say that Anne was an accomplished picker is to do her something of a disservice - the intricacy of her finger-work rivals - & more often than not eclipses - any number of her contemporaries. “A timeless document of sweet & haunting melodies. My favourite record of all time” - Ryley Walker.
