Story behind the song
In Taiwan, funeral ceremonies often take place on the street in large yellow tents. This funeral was just up the street from where I was living in Yong-Shing Road in Dali, Taichung. It carried on for a couple of days and it was loud... On the last day, I finally managed to find time to record these nuns. It was a rainy evening and I was outside the tent in the street so as not to disturb the proceedings. Eerie and beautiful! For a change, I've left some of the original recording at the end of the song as a play-out.
