before Man could have his right the wind blew the notes apart and as day shift to night it became an ill place wet and cold Man couldn't say, what was wrong he hadn't found the place to look it blew to home he climbed cliff Montserrat and listened how it ought to go he took a little earth in his mouth chewed it and wished he was old to be converted into sound and then by measure he would fall and he let his body fall "Blowing wind come, wind, come lend a hand to Be" he saw through the rocks the rocks and the sea the hymn was sound he could see

about

Montserrat is a concept album which features compositions written in the period of 2012-2013 after the release of These Sands. The digital download of the album includes a short story (in English, written by Oskars Jansons and Niklāvs Olševskis) regarding events that happened in medieval Spain, at the abbey of Montserrat. The album was recorded at a private studio.
The said period features more compositions not related to one another or this record (perhaps only in spirit) which will probably be released late 2015.
