Features Song Lyrics for Faustus's Death and Other Animals album.

Faustus (Saul Rose, Paul Sartin, Benji Kirkpatrick) perform at the Halsway Manor Showcase at English Folk Expo 2016, at Ramsbottom Civic Hall. The Death of Hart Royal' (published by Westpark Music) features on the new album 'Death and Other Animals', recorded at Halsway Manor during Faustus' year as Artists in Residence.

The ever-brilliant Faustus have been touring their amazing new album, Death and Other Animals. On it you’ll find a beautiful setting by Paul Sartin of a poem I wrote for them, during their residency at Halsway Manor, at the foot of the Quantocks. Gurt Dog' is a reworking of a local legend of a huge black.

Death and other Animals continues Faustus’ tradition of approaching traditional music from new, exciting angles, breathing fresh life into everything from 20th century American ballads to Chartist parodies of Shelley’s poetry, making it twist and dance in fascinating ways.

The Tragical History of the Life and Death of Doctor Faustus, commonly referred to simply as Doctor Faustus, is an Elizabethan tragedy by Christopher Marlowe, based on German stories about the title character Faust. It was written sometime between 1589 and 1592, and might have been performed between 1592 and Marlowe's death in 1593. Two different versions of the play were published in the Jacobean era, several years later.

A third Faustus album, Death and Other Animals, was released on the West Park Music label in Autumn 2016 The album was recorded at Halsway Manor, and features songs from the centre’s extensive collection  . 2008 Faustus Navigator Records. 2013 Broken Down Gentlemen Navigator Records. 2016 Death and Other Animals West Park Music. 2019 Cotton Lords EP - Five Songs of the Lancashire Cotton Famine West Park Music.

Not only was Death and Other Animals recorded here but the Manor’s library was raided for album material. Rupert Christie, fresh from his production duties with Bellowhead, has been recruited to punch up Faustus’ already big sound, whilst still letting each instrument shine through. And it’s not just the production that has changed. Song arrangements are more complex, there’s more harmony singing and there’s more nuance too. Take Faustus’ version of Oh To Be A King.

Other similar books of that period include: Das Wagnerbuch (1593). Das Widmann'sche Faustbuch (1599). The Death of Doctor Faustus (1925) by Michel de Ghelderode. Mephisto (1933) Klaus Mann. Faust, a Subjective Tragedy (1934) by Fernando Pessoa. The first five tracks from the album The Killing Gods. A five-song, modern interpretation of Goethe's Faust.

Doctor Faustus stood out from the crowd by combining things we associate with medieval drama (like allegory) to explore what we now think of as modern questions: What form should knowledge take? . Faustus grapples with this same question at the beginning of the play, and eventually arrives at the shaky conclusion that he's damned no matter what he does. The way he handles this belief is the subject of the rest of the play. All along characters like the Good Angel and the Old Man try to convince Faustus that he does have a choice; they insist that he can repent and turn to God again. Are they right? That's a question only you can answer, because Marlowe is annoyingly coy. So dig in to Doctor Faustus, and tackle the big questions. Then get back to Shmoop to give us the skinny
