X is for Gregorian
As I mentioned in my theme-reveal post, this month will be all about music and how it inspires my writing.
Gregorian (or Gregorian Masters of Chant) appeared in my music library after a LAN (basically a computer gaming party where all the computers are on the same network). I really liked their music from the start: using this old-world quality on pop songs. They’ve done covers of “All I Need” (see the “W” post), “Bring Me To Life” (see the “E” post), “Running Up That Hill” (see the “P” post), “Enjoy the Silence” (see the “D” post) and many others.
They are truly a gift (see my word of the day) and does a great job in doing cover versions of all of my favourite songs. When I write stories of old Faerie (meaning stuff that happened before The Rift – around a thousand years ago), I listen to them.
Favourite album: “The Dark Side of the Chant” Favourite song: “O Fortuna”
Word of the day: xenium
According to Collins English dictionary: xenium n a gift, usually food items, given to a guest or foreign diplomat in ancient Greece and Rome
