Image description

This is a musical paradox - a relatively short (for us) and very melodic, singable song but the story is of someone watching events unfold as they are buried alive. It's all part of the musical concept called The Wicker Man (nothing to do with the film of the same name), a tale of murder and revenge set in Shropshire during the Industrial Revolution - c 1770.

Tanja has excelled herself with a wonderful one-take vocal. I can't get that melody out of my head.
