12/07/2020 - Matthew Leigh Embleton - Batrachomyomachia (Vocals by Minnie Rogers)

The Batrachomyomachia or Battle of the Frogs and Mice is a comic epic, or a parody of the Iliad, commonly attributed to Homer. The march of the percussion suggests the image of each side marching into battle. The plucked strings and siren-like vocals suggest the atmosphere of the imagination of the ancient world. Produced by Matthew Leigh Embleton. Commissioned by Rob Cain for the Ancient Rome Refocused Podcast (http://www.ancientromerefocused.org)

11/07/2020 - Minnie Rogers - The Siren

Minnie Rogers sings like a siren with the muse of Euterpe in this hauntingly beautiful dream-like piece. Inspired by the classic Hollywood films portraying the mythology of Ancient Greece. Produced by Matthew Leigh Embleton.
