Piers Faccini Performs

2:46

Accompanied only by some jostling bells, Piers Faccini stands alone in a garden and delivers a kind of ancient chant, part spiritual, part stripped down work song. It promises a new morning, a new life, but in a world where "all our words will soon be broken." Like a monk chanting in an old European monastery, Faccini invokes Biblical images of "seven days, seven nights, seven years, seven lives."
