23/10/2020 // the end of Mrs. Green
Since all of us aren't in the same places at the moment, this episode doesn't have any talking at all. Here is a helpful reference document instead:
The first track, There Was a Lady Mrs. Green sung by Dora Turner is from Smithsonian Folkways anthology of old English folk songs. This is also a relative of the song 'The Cruel Mother' and is about a single woman (with no hope of marriage) who becomes pregnant and gives birth to 3 children in the woods. She kills the babies to save her own life but is haunted by them for the rest of her life.
Further on is 'This is the Law of the Plague' by Diamanda Galas. On youtube is a full rip of the Target Video 1985 VHS 'The Litines of Satan' that is an incredible compilation of Diamanda Galas and billowing smoke. https://youtu.be/OBeTXiTZbCc
