"The Advent of Panurge" as written by and Derek Victor Shulman Ray Shulman....
There coming over Charaton Bridge
Look do you see the man who is poor but rich.
What do you wish, and where do you go,
Who are you, where are you from,
Will you tell me your name?
Rest awhile, call me your friend.
Please stay with me I'd like to help.

Then he said,
How can I speak when I'm dry and my
Throat is burning. So bring me aid
And I'll answer your doubts.
Friend in need I'd like your help
Please take me home I'll stay with you.
Then said he fair Pantagruel
My name is Panurge and I have come from Hell.

Look at my friend
Look all around you
Look at my friend
Take all round you.

Hey, Friend
So brotherhood was made as their bond
Carried him home and provide for his needs
And his shelter, this day was done
As no other the like.
Faithfully their vow was made and from
That day they were as one.

    General CommentThe lyrical content of this song was inspired by "Gargantua and Pantagruel", a series of novels written in the 16th century by François Rabelais which are about the adventures of giants.

    This song begins so delicate and ends up so powerful. Note the opening segment - the group is able to keep perfect sync with one another despite the lack of instrumentation for the sake of timing.

    Absolutely amazing, plus a "medieval-meets-funk" recorder quartet segment they threw in the middle just to be different from the album version.
