Song of the Week: “A Poem for Byzantium” – Delerium

19 Nov

After recording many albums with FLA bandmate Bill Leeb, Rhys Fulber took a break from Delerium following the commercial success of Semantic Spaces and Karma (particularly the 1997 track “Silence” sung by Sarah McLachlan) to work on solo projects, including Conjure One. In his absence, Leeb worked with producer Chris Peterson on the Poem album, which included this marvelous track, with lyrics and vocals by Joanna Stevens (of Solar Twins, Sleepthief). Is it about a lover moving on with her life after a difficult relationship, or about a Byzantine citizen fleeing a Turkish invasion? I won’t say. It’s a great listen, though.
