Traditional and modern instruments fuse once again to make folk "by any and every means possible" in "Het Heidens Corweie" (The Heathen's Work). The expression is Dutch and means "a hell of a lot of work".
This project is by William Higgins, who, though joined by some musical friends on some tracks, does all the writing and playing on his own.
The projects' material draws on many sources: being from North-West European descent William uses English, Dutch, OldSaxon- and Nethersaxon for his lyrics and elements from heathen mythology and lore from the middle-ages. Musically, he has moved from a Techno/Hiphop/Jazz background through New Age to his roots in the traditional music of England, Ireland, Twenthe (Netherlands) and Germany.
It is presented here in three chapters, of about 8 tracks each. The first chapter is called "A Rown for the Sea" and its style is "Electrofolk". The other two chapters will feature folk and metalelectrofolk and will be released in the following weeks.

02. Rei van de Twengelsman
03. De Oale Aa
04. Dustsceauwung at Dunwich
