Wendy Rule’s exciting new project “Persephone” is a beautifully evocative retelling of the Ancient Greek myth of the Goddess Persephone’s descent into the Underworld and the ensuing grief of her mother Demeter, the Goddess of the Grain.
The culmination of over twelve years work, this double-album is an epic journey of 24 tracks of songs and chants, totaling nearly 1 1/2 hours of music. Although drawing on Wendy’s musical journey over the past 2 decades, Persephone is unlike anything that she has done before. It’s a focused ‘song cycle’ – almost like an opera – designed to guide the listener through this ancient tale of the cycles of Nature. A 24 page lyric booklet is included in the beautiful six-panel eco-wallet that holds the two CDs. In the near future, the album will also be available on vinyl.
