      Stunning project by Piski Disk Records.

      Experimental ambient and folk by Sorrow- Rose Mcdowall, Robert lee, john balance -(Coil) ,David Tibet (Current 93)

      Rose Mcdowall sings with her magnificent voice In almost all tracks.

      Best tracks:

      Sorrow - The Final Solstice is the most amazing song here: sounds like magical and hypnotic Christmas song, Rose's voice Wraps you in magical beauty.

      Rosa Mundi - The Snow Man : Rose Mcdowall and John balance singing accompanied by Beautiful and warm ambient sounds that penetrate deeply into the soul and create mesmerizing feeling.

      Sorrow - Extracts From the Faery Queene : a combination of spoken word by David Tibet with the angelic voice of Rose Mcdowall , the voices accompanied by experimental ambient sounds.

      Peran Ophis– Nierika , mesmerizing and mystical. The music and the voice take you to explore a mysterious world.

      I love this cd very much so I have it on standard cd and on the Limited 500 CDR hand-numbered copies.
