The Masque of Bruma - Golau Glau [2011]

The Masque Of Bruma Cover Art

Uncanny Christmas the second.

Haunted carols, radiophonic mummers play and Ghost Box remix gift from Ye Advisory Circle.

01 The Yule Cat
There is an Icelandic myth. A giant cat comes on Christmas Eve to eat anyone who did not receive new clothing as a gift. You must finish all work with the wool before Yule...

02 The Owd Tup
Golau Glau's radiophonic take on the mummers play 'The Owd Tup', which was mostly performed in the Sheffield area and is based around the traditional folk song 'The Derby Ram'.

03 Wassail Branch
The wassail branch is decorated with holly, ivy and tiny silver bells. The city creeps into the season...

04 God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
Golau Glau's folky, electronic take on this traditional carol.

05 Oak Moon (Advisory Circle Radio Edit)
Remix of 'Oak Moon' from 'Myrrh & Myth' by The Advisory Circle (Ghost Box).

06 Coventry Carol
Golau Glau's Italo-ish take on this 16th century, very beautiful mummers carol about the Murder of the Innocents.
