A cold love can put out fire A cold love can put out fire Turn against the wind and call in the sea, the sea. Steady the ground where dead men sleep where dead men sleep. If I can tame you shift your skin You'll be my raven, my other, my twin. As Thought and Memory we'll soar into the sky, the sky hear electricity in wires see the fate of men and women as we hide our ship folding into itself like linen. A cold love can put out fire. A cold love can put out fire. We pull metal from the earth as we bury our desire as we bury our desire.

And outen then come the thick heart's blood and outen then come the thin. And outen then come the thick heart's blood and outen then come the thin. She's pulled out the hazel bush that should have grown into a tree. Fair Lucy she sits at her father's door weeping and making moan when by there come her brother dear "what ails thee Lucy wan?" "Oh I ail and I ail, dear brother", she cried "and I'll tell you the reason why: for there is a child between my two sides that's from you dear brother and I" And he's drawn out his good broad sword that hung low down by his knee and he has cutted off our Lucy Wan's head and her fair body in three. And outen then come the thick heart's blood and outen then come the thin. And outen then come the thick heart's blood and outen then come the thin. And he's away to his mother's house. "What ails thee Geordie wan? What's that blood on the point of your sword? Son come tell unto me" "Oh that is the blood of my greyhound he would not run for me." "But your greyhound's blood it was ne'er so red son come tell unto me." "Oh that is the blood of my grey hawk he would not fly for me." "But your grey hawk's blood it was ne'er so clear son come tell unto me." "Oh that's not the blood of my grey hawk 'tis the blood of my sister Lucy." "What will you do when your father comes to know? Son come tell unto me." "Oh I will set forth in a bottom less boat that sails across the sea." "And when will you come back again? Son come tell unto me." "When the sun and the moon dance on yonder green hill and that may never be".

Too late for sunrise. We must be past Hawaii by now. Still time for warning lights above tranquility and a bunch of guys going blue in there as we're kicking up the dust kicking up the dust. Hawaii by now Hawaii by now Hawaii by now One sixth Earthrise We're in the dark now It's beautiful kicking up the dust kicking up the dust kicking up the dust.

about

SARAH ANGLISS
WITH SARAH GABRIEL AND STEPHEN HISCOCK

A new album of dreamlike music, distilling Sarah's latest work with ancient instruments and extraordinary electroacoustic techniques.

Sarah is joined by vocalist Sarah Gabriel and percussionist Stephen Hiscock. As the trio play, their sounds are deftly contorted, fragmented and recombined using Angliss’ digital inventions. At the heart of the album is the clavisimbalum, a sonorous, fourteenth-century cousin of the harpsichord. Its plucked, soft iron strings ring with a rich, dark reverberance – a sound that hails from Eastern European folk and the Renaissance court.

Angliss adds voices in close harmony, recorder, theremin, percussion and robotic carillon, an instrument she devised and built to play bells at inhuman speeds, creating a haze of delicate, metallic sound.
