My third album was called "Three Cheers for the Black Bard!" (I can't resist those puns!) I hope you enjoy it as it will probably be the last for a long time. It was a long time coming and took a lot of work. It's the first one to go direct to CD and to feature color artwork. The songs and poems on it include:  (click the titles for lyrics, chords and sound clips.)

The Mountain of Red
Choose Wisely
The Public Face of Honor
Song of the Kingdoms
Macbeth - The Storybook Version
The Wise Dragon
The Price

It Was Just a Picture on the Wall
The Battle
The Man Who Would Not Die
On the Making of a Lady
A Single Kiss
Havelok’s Story
Without You Don’t You Know the Sun Won’t Shine
The History of Rome in Ten Minutes or Less

Would you like to own this album, the songbook, or the Poster??
Here's the order form

"The Man Who Would Not Die" was written by Sir Cipriano deAlvarez (former Baron of Iron Mountain, Meridies); all others are originals by Rathflaed. ("MacBeth" of course is a classic, but you should listen to the storybook translation. It is very similar to "Beowulf" from "Bards Makr the Best Lays" and "1066 - The Storybook Version" from "More!!!" If you like those, you'll probably like this one, and you'll probably enjoy the History of Rome as well.
