The Unthanks: Lines Part Three, Emily Brontë

Compact Disc

£10.00

Commissioned by the Brontë Society to mark Emily’s 200th Birthday, the third record of this trilogy is a collection of ten poems by Emily Brontë. Each song was written and recorded by McNally on Emily’s original piano (a rare example of a 5-octave cabinet piano probably made in London between 1810 and 1815), situated in the Parsonage where she grew up, performed with bandmates Becky and Rachel Unthank. The recording had to take place at nightfall, given that the Brontë Parsonage is now a working museum.
