Hope you like it
It's not too difficult to work out which Tudor lady this is about, but you’ll have to do some research to find the poet I’ve quoted from. Yes, I think I met her in this life and I may have been that poet.


White Falcon

As dawn broke red in that misty May sky,
You said your lord was noble and kind.
Your blind desire of estate
Meant your fall was mortal from that lofty place.
Even in those terrible days
I knew we’d meet again

Chorus White Falcon take to the wing
Rend the night like lightening
White Falcon, your moonlit spell
Will send thunder through the realms.

You flew from the tower and followed the coals,
To the warmth we knew of old.
As the lightning struck the church
Once more our lives converged.
How and why I lost you, I can’t say
But I knew we’d meet again

Chorus

M8 As I stare into that magic mirror’s screen
I see our trio playing out the scene,
Five hundred years of destiny.

“I’m in a mess” you said, in tears at my door.
“What used to heal is poison to the core”.
So, I’ll take you away
To heal in the low low valley and not push too hard at the gate.
For although there’s still some pain,
I knew we’d meet again.

OK, I don't know the real historical back-story, but I loved this song!
You captured the troubador-like feel for the verses, then kicked it up for the chorus--really liked that!
And you are taunting me to figure out what this is about, so I guess I have to do some research with the clues you've laid out!

Just on the surface, as songwriting, very well done!

Very, very nice. The woman is Anne Boleyn and I only know one Tudor poet so my guess is John Skelton.

Did you use BIAB to make this?

Great mood change between the verse and chorus I like the vocal doubling as well. What RealTracks did you use?

A very intimate vocal like you've mixed in the quiet parts requires a bit of treating to be comfortable, (particularly through headphones)...some de-essing would be the main thing.
The leap from slow & sparse to paster & full band needs, to my ears, to be either sudden and shocking or introduced smoothly.
Very interesting piece...I can hear Steeleye Span doing a fab version.


Cheers
