Traditional unadorned instrumentation and medieval melodies come together with badly mixed vocals.
Eugenia Houston's voice has its moments of heaven and hell. Mineraliaand Moonburn grate against the nerves with a very sad, nasal voicewhich is mixed too loudly. On the other hand, she sounds absolutelybeautiful in Luna Begets Mercury. Winter Marriage has a very charmingwoodwind arrangement. Lapis Philosophorum is a hymn with a marchingrhythm, and male vocals full of pageantry. After a certain point,however, it became apparent that many of the songs are variations on atheme, and with few exceptions, most of them just blend in with eachother indistinctly.
