This is a improvisation based on a song attributed to Anne Boleyn, supposedly written while she was being held in the Bloody Tower. I have part translated it into Welsh, and usually perform it with my band Dead Space Chamber Music. This is a special solo version, performed at The Sun At Night.

With heartfelt thanks to Conny Prantera and all the women who are part of The Moon Choir, and to Alice and Kayleigh from The Sun At Night, a fantastic, informal open space for music, sound, poetry and more at St Leonards Church, Shoreditch, London.
