Album Notes
The Egyptian Goddesses Isis and Nephthys were sisters and wives of their brother Osiris. When their brother Set became jealous of Osiris, he sealed Osiris in a specially made box and cast it away in a river that carried it to sea.
Ancient Egyptian texts called “Lamentations of Isis and Nephthys” have survived. In them the grieving sisters lament the loss of Osiris.
This music imagines the goddesses singing their lamentations, one after another, until they both join in a duet.
They are accompanied by ancient harp, wooden flute, finger cymbals, tambourine and systrum. Although no authentic ancient Egyptian music has survived to today, these instruments are often depicted in the paintings and murals of the time.
The music was composed and recorded at the Shelter of Clear Light Recording Studio in Los Angeles in July, 2018.
