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 singing in all the tracks with her magnificent voice,
the only track with beat is Velocity Star - Warm Leatherette.

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 Fairy Queene : a combination of spoken word by David Tibet with the angelic voice of Rose Mcdowall , the voices accompanied by experimental ambient sounds.

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