[Song Discussion] Frith's Blessing
« on: November 06, 2015, 08:25:51 PM »
(Reviewed by Darkling Nocturnal on The High Lonely Hills).

Gary Martin tells the story of El-ahrairahs creation. As said before, the song The Beginning (Overture) is based on this arrangement. But here can be heard a sacral choir in the intro. It's not a song in the classical meaning, more a audio drama. Gary Martin may tell the story very good and the background music is very felicitous. But it's a song I don't like really.



Review by Hawkbit, founder of Fiver's Honeycomb:

11 – Frith’s Blessing (Narrator - Gary Martin) : I’ll come out and say I’m not fond of this version of the Elahrairah tale. The tale itself has been shortened and streamlined, though visually on screen, it’s pretty decent and in the style of the original film. What makes this version less appealing is the background music. Gone is the atmosphere of danger and spontaneity, and without it, the tale is nothing more than a bedtime story.
