PERSEPHONE Double Album by WENDY RULE
Persephone, the new double-album from Australian visionary songstress Wendy Rule is a beautifully evocative retelling of the Ancient Greek myth of the Goddess Persephone’s descent into the Underworld and the subsequent grief of her mother, the Goddess Demeter. The 24 track album is a focused song cycle – almost like an opera – designed to guide the listener through this ancient tale of the cycles of Nature and the realms of Life, Death, and human emotion.
Wendy sings in the voices of the three goddesses who feature in the myth: Kore/Persephone, Demeter, and Hekate -with Hekate’s parts chanted in Greek.
