Enota and the Temple Virgins

The virgins live in grass cages, and worldly goods have none, save the effigy chairs, which they decorate’ as they do themselves, in manner strange…

Enota the Great and the other Temple Virgins and Itznakov, diarist priest and keeper of the Virgin cages, were central inhabitants of the various temples of Llhuros – particularly, that of Holmeek. This audio recording was conceived and written by Norman Daly in a period of his work we refer to as Llhuros II (post-1974) in which he was conceiving of a play he called “Stiltwalkers.” We are not certain of those performing the spoken portions of this narrative. This recorded description was likely included in grant application materials for further work on Llhuros.

Here is the Virgin’s Song musical notation and an audio clip as sung by Elizabeth Cornell.
