{ The Albatross }


Notes

1. "And I had done an hellish thing, /
And it would work 'em woe: /
For all averred, I had killed the bird /
That made the breeze to blow. /
Ah wretch! said they, the bird to slay, /
That made the breeze to blow!"

2. "Alone, alone, all, all alone, /
Alone on a wide wide sea! /
And never a saint took pity on /
My soul in agony."

- Samuel Taylor Coleridge, "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner."
(Being the fourth in a series of playlists which contain musical inspiration for the protagonists of my novel. The first is "And the Gods Reclaim'd Her," the second, "Liberty, However Brief," the third "Send Those That We Bury Back.")

@Apondnamedriver For some reason, it wasn't getting as many plays or likes, so I've taken it back in for a redo. I'll release it soon! You're the only one that's asked me about it tbh but it's been on my mind for a while.

This is a truly wonderful mix, you capture so much feeling and narrative in the music alone. I wish I could read the corresponding novel!

@pyccknn I am SO sorry for the late reply! I'm still in the research stage at the moment, especially because I've just started University for history. I'm hoping to optimize the tale through my education, as it takes place in the past (1700-1800's, undecided yet.) I'm planning it every day, though!
