Song: Rise Like Lions

The lyrics for this song by Kirsty Martin are taken from The Masque of Anarchy, Shelley’s poetic response to the Peterloo Massacre of 1819. More recently, these anthemic words have once again been brought to life as stirring political commentary. This song began life as an improv experiment at a workshop in Kendal and has grown into this part song – each part goes over the other, or you can sing it from top to tail in sections, as the audio does. If you would like the individual audio parts, please do drop her a line: Enjoy the Roar!
