Recording information by WaterbirdGOLD

A Modern Musical adaptation of John Bunyans Pilgrims Progress in Serial Form … attesting to Humanities Eternal Quest for Spiritual Enlightenment .
John Bunyan wrote that he "...did not think To shew to all the World my Pen and Ink..


As I walked through the wilderness of this world, I lighted on a certain place where there was a den; and I laid me down in that place to sleep: and as I slept I dreamed a dream. I dreamed, and behold I saw a man clothed with rags, standing in a certain place, with his face from his own house, a book in his hand, and a great burden upon his back. I looked, and saw him open the book and read therein; and as he read he wept and trembled: and, not being able longer to contain, he brake out with a lamentable cry, saying, What shall I do?

In this plight therefore he went home, and refrained himself as long as he could, that his wife and children should not perceive his distress; but he could not be silent long, because that his trouble increased: wherefore at length he brake his mind to his wife and children; and thus he began to talk to them: “O my dear wife”, said he, “and you the children of my bowels, I your dear friend am in myself undone, by reason of a burden that lieth hard upon me: moreover, I am certainly informed that this our city will be burned with fire from heaven; in which fearful overthrow, both myself, with thee my wife, and you my sweet babes, shall miserably come to ruin; except (the which yet I see not) some way of escape may be found, whereby we may be delivered”. At this his relations were sore amazed; not for that they believed that what he had said to them was true, but because they thought some frenzy distemper had go into his head: therefore, it drawing towards night, and they hoping that sleep might settle his brains, with all haste they got him to bed. But the night was as troublesome to him as the day: wherefore, instead of sleeping, he spent it in sighs and tears. So, when the morning was come, they would know how he did: and he told them, worse and worse. He also set to talking to them again, but they began to be hardened: they also thought to drive away his distemper by harsh and surly carriages to him: sometimes they would deride, sometimes they would chide, and sometimes they would quite neglect him. Wherefore he began to retire himself to his chamber, to pray for and pity them; and also to condole his own misery. He would also walk solitarily in the fields sometimes reading and sometimes praying: and thus for some days he spent his time.

Waterbird, I am back for installment two. You know, I never particularly liked this song, "Town Without Pity", but I do now. Not only do I like the way you sing it, but now I very much like your having chosen it. I can see that part of the enjoyment of your musical adaption here, for me, will be seeing which songs you choose to tell Champion's story.
