Fenland

This is a 4 part ‘partner*’ cyclical song inspired by the Norfolk fenland. 4 different tunes with different words that fit over the same chord structure and are sung at the same time *

Example of lyrics

* 1 Down from the deep in the heart of the fen; down from the deep a long boat rises / 2 One hundred thousand acres, three times drained. Fenland cuts reach the sea / 3 Ghosts cling to dust as it blows in four directions across the sky on the wind that steals our soil / 4 The sea is a hungry one, and it takes its fill in quiet ways over years. As the fenland sighs the coastline grows
