ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Album

A scorned lady, a wounded warrior, a deadbeat sailor, magicians and country lasses all come alive in this collection of traditional English story songs updated with some unique arrangements. By turns beautiful and whimsical, the three- and four-part vocal performances are supported by a generous serving of mandolins, dulcimers and strings.

The CD comes with a pretty ribbon and wax seal, as if a rich noblewoman sent it. To keep everything in place, just cut the ribbon along the right edge with a pair of scissors or with the eating knife you keep on your belt… You do keep an eating knife on your belt, don’t you?


The Artists/Instrumentation

Wren of Iniquity was formed by enthusiasts of the Renaissance Pleasure Faire in California who met at the St. Helena’s Guild, home to more than a few pagans, vegans and libertines, and a hotbed of traditional arts. In past lives, they are vets of many genres, including folk bands, classical ensembles, madrigal groups, rock ‘n roll, blues, country and cover bands, stage and musical theater.

Laura Gregory – soprano
Vickie Bottelson – soprano, tambourine
Joyce Nunamaker – alto/tenor, mandolin, mountain dulcimer
Mark Sellin – vocals, tenor mandolin, strings (fiddle, cello, viola), mountain dulcimer, bass
Nathaniel Sellin – bodhran
Shawna Selline – pennywhistle


Track Notes

Earl Richard
… then he said something he shouldn’t have

One Misty Moisty Morning
… cloudy weather, a milkmaid, a proposal and much celebrating

Ramblin’ Sailor
… a sailor takes on an unusual commission from the Queen

Lassie Gathering Nuts
… never fall asleep on the job

Staines Morris
… lads and lasses bring in the May with flowers and kisses

Our Queen
… no king can compare

Cakes & Ale
… take care how you handle the Catch of the Day

The Fishes Song
… there be a storm a brewin’

The Bedmaking
… the perilous position of being a chambermaid

Two Magicians
… a magical game of cat and mouse

Me Husband’s Got No Courage
… oh dear, oh

Once I Had a Sweetheart
… a disappointed maiden considers a new life

Wild Mountain Thyme
…there are always more laddies out there

The Healer In The Woods
…a wounded warrior, a secret place
