In Woman Arborescent four songs evolve, progressing from the sufferings born of a childs love and love lost to a young womans liberating rebirth, from the torments of girlhood to its integration in a flourishing adult, from the intimacy of dream to the passionate vibrancy of life. Sensual, expressive images lead us into symbolic worlds rich with the pains and joys of being; where magic mingles with the voices of trees, water and wind.
