Hibernal, the second of Packwood's four part seasonal epic, Vertumnus, is a meditation on death and rebirth: an introverted exploration of the self, mortality and our relationship with nature.

Intimate, hushed vocals play against swelling orchestral and choral arrangements, hinting at the parallels of our own transience and that of our planet. Lyrically, Hibernal is framed through a darker, colder lens – but musically it inspires a resilience and hope in the path of humanity.
