The Masque Of Bruma

The 2011 Golau Glau seasonal spectacular is here!

The Masque Of Bruma is a festive EP out now for free download from Bandcamp.

Golau Glau - The Masque Of Bruma

A masque is an amateur dramatic entertainment of the 16th to 17th centuries in England, consisting of pantomime, dancing, dialogue, and song, often performed at court. It seems appropriate for our motley collection of: a brand new song about the Icelandic myth of the Yule Cat, a radiophonic take on a classic mummers play, beautiful Christmas carols, a remix by Ghost Box‘s resident genius The Advisory Circle and a little wassailing.
