...a conversation with the keeper of the cauldron of inspiration! Also from the new album "Ravensong", featuring the beautiful and evocative whistle playing of Robert White, as well as a lovely ethnic vibe created through the rhythmic and melodic interplay of the bass and the marimbula.

Climbing up on Roundton Hill I see a raven in the sky
Gliding on the thermal he twist, turn and catch my eye
He croaked “I know why you’re alive”

Now the keeper of the cauldron said “Wake up child feel the ground
Yes you are of flesh and blood but more of light and sound
And I will teach you how to live in now”

Here I stand up to sing the four directions in and be a voice upon the wind
I hear you calling from the borders of my dreams and I feel like we are kin
We are kin

My back upon the Aldryss my eyes upon the stars
I hear the music of the spheres between the isobars
It’s a sweet star lore to the crystal core

My arms around the old black bark of the Hawthorn in flower
Maiden mother crone you are oracular in power
From you I learn it is my turn

Here I stand up to sing the four directions in and be a voice upon the wind
I hear you calling from the borders of my dreams and I feel like we are kin

Oh Lady I’m alive I can feel the power in my spine
I have my horses in hand and my time is mine

Here I stand up to sing the four directions in and be a voice upon the wind
I hear you calling from the borders of my dreams and I feel like we are kin
We are kin

Climbing up on Roundton Hill, yeah yeah yeah

Beautiful seems almost like a mundane word to use to describe this piece which truly stands as a work's s of art. The flute work is incredible, the vocals piercing and soft at the same time, the percussion emotive and, in a way, groovy. The harmonies are absolutely breathtaking. I'm always a sucker for some great acoustic rhythm guitar, done to perfection here. This song is good enough to be in a sweeping ancient epic movie. The composition, technical detail and melodic intricacies remind me of Howard Shore or Hans Zimmer's softer sides. The gently distorted guitar line that comes in at the end is a stroke of genius for a song that could easily have just faded out with what it had. Little things like that fill the entire song, making it worth listening to over and over again, as you will almost certainly hear something new each time.

I like the chorus in this tune. Makes you like the rest of the song. Now I like it.
