This is a digital album only of the Rime of the Ancient Mariner and it's component parts as well as the most popular songs on this site. It is available to DJs as a download at N/C. Please consider making a PWYC so that I will be able to continue my current project: Le Bateau Ivre (The Drunken Boat), an impressionist setting of Arthur Rimbaud's Poem in French as well as in English. The setting, vocals, cello and guitar tracks are complete as well as parts of the percussion. We are working on the final track, piano, before mix/master/manufacture.
