The Mistletoe by Heidi Harris and Kine Hjeldnes by Heidi Harris published on 2012/12/03 13:49:49 +0000 Song by Heidi Harris and Kine Hjeldnes Lyrics taken from "The Mistletoe Bough" by Thomas Haynes Bayley (1884) The Legend of the Mistletoe Bough is a ghost story which has been associated with many mansions and stately homes in England. The tale tells how a new bride, playing a game of hide-and-seek during her wedding breakfast, hid in a chest in an attic and was unable to escape. She was not discovered by her family and friends, and suffocated. The body was allegedly found many years later in the locked chest. Further works inspired by the song include a play of the same name by Charles A Somerset first produced in 1835. A short story, 'Ginevra or The Old Oak Chest: A Christmas Story' by Susan E Wallace published in 1887 and another short story "The Romance of Certain Old Clothes" by Henry James published in 1868. The song is also played in Thomas Hardy's A Laodicean, after the scene involving the capture of George Somerset's handkerchief from the tower. from Dream Fodder, released 03 December 2012 Kine Hjeldnes / Oslo, Norway ~ intro vocals, synth and sequencing. soundcloud.com/kinehjeldnes Heidi Harris- vocals, theremin, glockenspiel, bells, mixing.
