2. DRINKING SONG

(Macbeth at the Redcliffe Caves)

I'll eat 'til there is no more

Drink until it all is gone

I'll roam, 'til my seed runs dry

Conquer 'til my legs give up

I'll shoot, 'til my quiver's spent

Fight until my sword is blunt

And with my countrymen I'll serve the king

Until his reign is done...

Pour, pour, pour, pour

Pour me another one

'Til there is no more

Pour me another one...

Raise your cup to victory...

Raise your cup to victory...

3. DUNCAN'S

FUNERAL

(Macbeth at the Redcliffe Caves)

Cold as I was on the day of my birth

Let not my death be my enemy's mirth

Rather my leaving betray his true worth

And bid him soon lie in the umberous earth

Fate warms its heart in the blackening sky

An old barren soul, with a deafening cry

Pray that you all know the truth when I die

That it not be marred by a pilferous lie

Fortune absolve me, a son so devout

Your hours I observed leave me not without

Sorrow be kind to me, spare my my doubt

My truth be bold and cast me not out

Featuring Helen Cockill, Natalie Farr, & Zach Powell.

Music by E. Showering

Lyrics by E. Showering

5. ALL THAT I HAVE

(Orpheus & Eurydice in the Clifton Suspension Bridge Vaults)

Without your words I break

In pieces for the taking

Carve me whole, and keep my flesh

I have reached you, I have reached you

I have reached you, finally reached you

I can smell you when I breathe

And I can hear you

Can you hear me?

Can you hear me?

Can you hear me?

It's taken all that I have, just to be here, just to be here

Taken all that I have, just to be here, just to be here...

(repeats)

Beneath the barren earth

My life once more awakens

Naught but death between our lips

I have reached you, I have reached you

I have reached you, finally reached you

I can feel you in the air and I can see you

Can you see me?

Can you see me?

Can you feel me?

Can you hear me?

It's taken all that I have

All that I have (all that I have)

All that I have (all that I have)

All that I have....

Featuring Helen Cockill, Natalie Farr, Anthony Pinnick & Ellie Showering

Lyrics by E. Showering

6. DOWN WITH THE TOPMAST

(The Tempest in St John on the Wall's Crypt)

Down with the topmast, lower, lower

Fall to't or we run ourselves aground

High my hearts, cheerly, cheerly my hearts

I pray now keep below

 

Go tend to the Master's whistle

Take in the topsail, ahold

Bestir, bestir, poor souls bestir

Shall we give oe'r and drown

 

Now would I give a thousand furlongs

For one barren acre of ground

We split, we split, stand fast good fate

The wills above be done

 

I'll be patient when the sea is

They shout "let's all sink with the King"

A plague, a plague upon this howling

They are louder than the weather

 

Down with the topmast, lower, lower

Fall to't or we run ourselves aground

High my hearts, cheerly, cheerly my hearts

I pray now keep below

I pray now keep below

Featuring Helen Cockill, Natalie Farr & Ellie Showering

Music by E. Showering

Lyrics by W. Shakespeare adapted by E. Showering

7. THE ISLAND

(The Tempest in St John on the Wall's Crypt)

I have kissed the wild waves whist

I saw all the charms, every fertile inch o' the isle

Let me live here ever, this place, paradise

Wilt thou go with me, here in this island?

Come unto these yellow sands, prithee now, lead the way

Be not afeared, sounds and sweet airs give delight

The isle is full of noises, such shapes, such gesture and such sound

Such gesture and such sound

This music crept by me upon the waters, in the air and the earth

a thousand voices hum about mine ears

Where should this music be? It waits upon some God

Featuring Helen Cockill, Natalie Farr & Ellie Showering

Music by E. Showering

Lyrics by W. Shakespeare adapted by E. Showering

8. MONSTER

(The Tempest in St John on the Wall's Crypt)

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Oo-ah, oo-ah, oo-ah, oo-ah

Oo-ah, oo-ah, oo-ah, oo-ah

 

Poor monster, weak monster, no monster, quiet monster

Brave monster, howl monster, man monster, ridiculous monster

Lead monster, plague monster, bully monster, tyrant monster

Scurvy monster, shallow monster, servant monster

Ignorant monster

 

Oo-ah, oo-ah, oo-ah, oo-ah

Oo-ah, oo-ah, oo-ah, oo-ah

Oo-ah, oo-ah, oo-ah, oo-ah

Oo-ah, oo-ah, oo-ah, oo-ah

 

Sometime I am all wound with adders who, with cloven tongues, do hiss me into madness

                       

Heavens keep me from these beasts   

Freckled whelp, hag borne, dull thing

Torment to the damned

 

Savage, abhorred slave, brutish, vile race

Shrugst thou, monster? Do you hear, monster? Art thou lost, monster?

 

Poor worm thou art infected, I fear a madness holds you

Creature composed of harshness, filth as thou art, imposter

Fury crack, cracked misshapen, sour eyed disdain and discord

Most lying and most wicked, being unfit to live

Featuring Helen Cockill as CALIBAN, Natalie Farr & Ellie Showering

Music by E. Showering

Lyrics by W. Shakespeare adapted by E. Showering

9. BY THE WATERS

(The Tempest in St John on the Wall's Crypt)

Ooh, ooh, ooh

Ooh, ooh, ooh

 

Two most rare affections

My admired, hear my soul speak to you

Worth what’s dearest to the world

 

By the waters I did find you, I did warm you

Be of comfort, beyond limit I will love you

 

Ahh, ahh, ahh

Ahh, ahh, ahh

 

Here’s my hand with my heart in’t

Oh you wonder, precious creature

I’ll be your surety

I found you somehow

I found you somehow

I found you somehow

I found you somehow

I found you somehow

I found you somehow        

 

Ooh, ooh, ooh

Ooh, ooh, ooh

 

Be of comfort, beyond limit I will love you

10. THE TEMPEST

(The Tempest in St John on the Wall's Crypt)

Blow, ‘til thou burst thy wind

You do assist the storm

Command these elements to silence

 

All lost to prayers to prayers to prayers all lost

All lost to prayers to prayers to prayers all lost

All lost to prayers to prayers to prayers all lost

All lost to prayers to prayers to prayers all

 

All lost to prayers to prayers to prayers all lost

All lost to prayers to prayers to prayers all lost

All lost to prayers to prayers to prayers all lost

All lost to prayers to prayers to prayers all

 

Wild waters sink the sea within the earth

 

All lost to prayers to prayers to prayers all lost

All lost to prayers to prayers to prayers all lost

All lost to prayers to prayers to prayers all lost

All lost to prayers to prayers to prayers all

 

Tread the ooze of the salty deep

Run upon the sharp wind of the north

In the veins of the earth

Hell is empty all the devils are here (all lost to prayers)

Hell is empty all the devils are here (all lost to prayers)

Hell is empty,

Hell is empty,

Hell is empty and all the devils are here

Here

EXTENDED SECTION: Reprise of 'Down with the Topmast', 'Monster', 'By the Waters' and 'Hell is empty'

11. COME AWAY DEATH 

(Insane Root at the Underglobe)

Come away, come away, death
And in sad Cyprus let me be laid
Fly away, fly away, breath
I am slain by a fair cruel maid

 

My shroud of white all stuck with yew
O prepare it
My part of death no one so true
Did share it

Not a flower, not a flower, sweet
On my black coffin let there be strewn
Not a friend, not a friend, greet
My poor corpse where my bones shall be thrown


A thousand thousand sighs to say
Lay me over
Sad true lover never find my grave
To weep there

Oo....

Featuring Helen Cockill, Natalie Farr & Ellie Showering

Music by E. Showering

Lyrics by E. Showering

12. THE WEDDING 

(Romeo & Juliet in Eastville Park Swimming Pool)

With eye thou see'st all beauty

With ear thou hear'st all song

With hand thy touch doth make breath quake

With tongue thy truth is painted sure

With heart thy love becomes thee brave...

13. JULIET'S FUNERAL 

(Romeo & Juliet in Eastville Park Swimming Pool)

Tho' breath be gone, mine eyes forever closed

Tho' mind and body lie in dark repose

Tho' heavy be my shadow looming high

Mourn not, for our name will never die

Mourn not, for our name will never die

Raise cup and drink, for solace it shall give

Raise voice and shout, my memory to live

Send me off, no riches at my side

Mourn not, for our name will never die

Mourn not, for our name will never die

Forget me not, for I am bound to thee

This blood will link us for eternity

My family was 'ere my greatest pride

Mourn not, for our name will never die

Mourn not, for our name will never die

Featuring Amy Gardyne, Zach Powell & Ellie Showering.

Somebody say love (strike drum)

Somebody say love (strike drum)

Somebody say love (strike drum)

Gather round, and away we'll go

Last one out has to carry me home

Somebody say love (strike drum)...
