Nicky Francis & The Quill
æmma sang 'Little Lamb' in cathedral choirs when she was young (words were by William Blake, put into a stunning choral piece by John Tavener, an old English choral composer). It has interesting harmonies and a strong mythical feeling that always stuck with her. She missed singing this kind of devotional choral music despite having left organised religion and the church years ago.
House of Hym is a song about leaving a destructive relationship; having anger and frustration at some kind of male Godhead; leaving an organised religion and finding strength and celebration in being feminine.
The idea of singing to Mother Nature and the wonder of creation inspired the lyrics ‘Little Lamb who made thee...' and so instead of singing praise to a male god figure, æmma sings to the feminine 'She'. Influenced by old English mythical and pagan influences alongside dance music and mixing up the idea of transcending and otherworldly music with more down to earth tribal tones.
Emma Churchley is a classically trained multi instrumentalist and composer, born and raised on Dartmoor.
