of Songs 4 — 12
This enchanting CD opens with sweet birdsong and the healing waters
of the red spring recorded at Chalice Well garden, flowing easily
into the first song, Garden of Blue Roses:
“In the garden of blue roses
I met Our Lady there
And lying quite close beside her
The Unicorn so fair.
Lily of the king
Raise up thy silver wing
For long has been the hour
Of thine unqueening.
In the garden of Gethsemane
The sun and moon did meet
And spreading o’er the kingdom
Their kiss rang true and sweet…..”
