Veil of Gossamer is an album by Dave Bainbridge. Released in 2004.

The idea for Veil of Gossamer came from an incident that is said to have occurred in the 7th century to a young shepherd boy whilst on the Northumbrian hills, tending his flock. Seeing a strange sight in the sky off in the distance near Bamburgh and Lindisfarne, it amounted to 'lights' ascending and descending from the heavens. The next day it appears this experience coincided with the death of the celtic saint, St. Aidan. The boy was Cuthbert who became a great church leader and saint himself and succeeded St. Aidan. the music comes from this inspiration.
