a collection of live symphonic recordings from across hegarty & co's 4 studio albums, representing antony's continued meditation on light, nature & femininity.

recorded in 2011 in copenhagen with the danish national chamber orchestra with arrangements by nico muhly, rob moose, maxim moston & antony. the title track is brand new, a soaring & powerful ode to performance artist marina abramovic, with hegarty's voice sounding more powerful than ever, while the rest of the album features simply heart-stopping renditions of songs selected from the group's beautiful body of work, including 'you are my sister', 'swanlights' & 'the crying light', imbued with new meaing through the painstaking arrangements & instrumentation. "watch out, sky gods, antony has entered the lists" 4/5 - mojo.
