"Beneath the waters… the village Capel Celyn. This village in Wales was submerged, against much protest and struggle by its inhabitants, in order to accomodate a resevoir. This is a lament for the loss of Capel Celyn, memories now held beneath the water." (From the liner notes on the re-release of _The Celts_)
