Book IX

from Lent 2010 by Once in a Moon



Book nine of the Aeneid shows the events at the Trojan camp while Aeneas is away.

The music is from Movement 34 of Purcell's Dido and Aeneas (The Witches Dance) and is taken from a recording of a performance at Bury Court, Bentley.


When Iris comes to tell you Aeneas is away
You know the time is right to strike
But their fort is defended
Nevermind, we'll burn their boats instead

Hahaha Heeheehee You thought you'd burn us
But we turned into sea nymphs so bugger off dear Turnus

Fuck You
This means war and we will conquer
We will meet them, fight them
Drive them back to base
I will slice them, dice them
Kill them right in the face
If the numbers get too much for me
Though chance of that is very slim
I will drop right off their battlements
And go and have a little swim


from Lent 2010, track released March 22, 2010
Music written by Henry Purcell and Performed by Southbank Sinfonia. Lyrics and Vocals by Robert Wells.
