Ultimate Numinous World Song

I've shared favorite songs for specific books before, but this is the ultimate Numinous World song, the one that completely sums up Gull/Lydias/Charmian/Georg/Elza/Beatrice. Take a listen. It's Grace Griffith's Water, Fire and Smoke. You can listen to the whole song free on this website.

Ancient spirit indeed.

I've knelt in the ashes
In peace may I rise
Empty and knowing and full of surprise
Go down in silence
A daughter baptized
In the water, fire and smoke.

Oh that is lovely, in return can I share The Everlove's Cities in Smoke (it's used in the newest GoT trailer), it makes me think of that one passage about the fall of Pompeii ...

I love that song. I've got an old recording (on cassette, from 1993) of it one an album called "We Believe" by Andras and Deirdre Arthen. I think they only did that one album, but it was a good one. It's a shame they haven't ever re-issued it on CD or as a download.

There's a nice recording of it on this album too: My Favorite Sings - Kathy Mar http://www.prometheus-music.com/mysings.html

Isn't it lovely? I think it's just perfect for Gull etc.
