Stolen From God


Reg Meuross tackles the history of England’s involvement in the transatlantic slave trade, unearthing both incredible tales and uncomfortable truths - now brought fully to life with this stunning song cycle joined by kora master Suntou Susso and concertina wizard Cohen Braithwaite-Kilcoyne alongside narration on the background to each song.


If ever there was evidence that music can be used to speak truth to power, then this album will in time sit as testament to that fact. From a British man of colour, a personal thanks must go to Reg Meuross and his team for taking on this subject matter

Ifi Umoren – FATEA



…never has he made a more important or more deeply considered and researched album

Iain Anderson, BBC Radio Scotland


⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “...both moves and challenges the listener

Steve Johnson – Morning Star


… turns an unflinching eye on the toxic legacy of the transatlantic slave trade…. And how so many of the nation’s grand estates and lauded figures were tainted by the stain of slavery that had served as the foundation for their wealth and public acclaim.

Mike Davies for Folk Radio UK


Reg Meuross has written a masterpiece and the musicians working with him on this are simply amazing.

Mike Harding


A stunning and important work of historical research set to some of the best folk tunes you’ll hear this year

Tim Martin – Americana UK


... the culmination of four years digging into the hellish history of the Atlantic Slave Trade



Audience feedback:


Informative, moving and eloquent and the songs evocative and powerful


A difficult subject covered with care and compassion and a story that needed telling


I’m left with 3 feelings: admiration at the superb quality of the writing and musicianship; deep emotion at the power of the storytelling; anger at the abhorrence of the Slave Trade. You have done us a great service by bringing it to a wider audience: thank you.
