featuring Maria Franz on vocals
Award-winning composer and cellist Jo Quail has released a brand new single, "Macha". The new song is taken from a special upcoming release, the Invocation / Supplication double album. On Invocation, a three-song-cycle, you'll be able to hear Maria Franz (Heilung) as a guest vocalist. Supplication features the vocal contribution of Lorenzo Esposito Fornasari.
Jo Quail comments: "Macha is the first song in a three-song cycle I composed for Maria Franz. From our very first meeting some years back I dreamed to create a musical landscape to present to Maria, and I am blessed by the warmth and generosity with which she greeted this proposal. Macha is a song of empowerment, of ascendency, of awakening; it was a joy to compose this music and a deeply humbling experience to be with Maria as she interpreted my thoughts, her voice in full flight with such radiance and inspiration."

The Invocation / Supplication double album will be released via By Norse Music on November 3 and on Jo Quail's upcoming European tour. Pre-orders are available in the store HERE and on Bandcamp.
