While continuing my next work "Tales From 1020" I'd like to show you the song
"Seasons Of 1020": http://home.mnet-online.de/profknaakenbroed//music/talesfrom1020/SeasonsOf1020.mp3
an instrumental, telling from the four seasons of the year 1020, which were spring, summer, war and pestilence.
Listen to the arrival of spring, melting the ice, warming the air and bringing animals, flowers and humans back to life. Turning into a rich summer, life must have been wonderful these days. Imagine the lust, the abundant feelings our ancestors must have experienced, the sweet peaceful winds being warm and carring flavours full of life.
The fading summer, changing into autumn brings the sound of a distant army, approaching slowly. The time of peace is gone. War is covering the land, bringing death and despair, the sweet music has turned into cold metallic noise.
With the beginning of the cold winter the host army disappears, leaving a wasted land, depredated and disgraced. In the hunger and despair a last farewell present is left.... pestilence devours the remaining survivors, leaving cold, depopulated areas, where believe and ethics are absent.
Luckily 1020 was a year lacking such desastrous events, so this story is just artistical liberty of mine.
Unfortunately many years before and afterwards weren't.
