Destiny and Devotion, Dark Nights
and Dazed Illuminations. Josephine raises a stained-glass lamp and shepherds us spelunking the

depths of spirit in this four-part double album. Following the fame of her voice are choruses of winged entities (and a space shut-
tle) that ascend and descend a maze of spirituals: ritual prayers, blues laments, vestal hymns and jubilant benedictions. The edg-
es of the natural world are revolving backdrops from which our narrator perches upon symbolic precipice or saunters desolate

snow-blanched forest, exploring eternal themes of mortality and morality, beneath the moon and in occasional dialogue with a
mysterious lord of love, an ambiguous mystical figure. Accompanying herself on guitar, piano, organ, harp & autoharp, this cycle
of 18 new songs hearken back to various facets of Foster's anachronic oeuvre (the esoteric balladry of This Coming Gladness,
native rhythms of Blood Rushing, somnambulist waltzes of I'm a Dreamer, the Shaker primitivism of Hazel Eyes, I Will Lead you).
Celestial humor and devastating innocence are delivered with contributions from Victor Herrero (lead guitars), Gy a Valt sd ttir

(cello), Chris Scruggs (pedal steel), Jon Estes (bass), as well as cameos by members of The Cherry Blossoms and others. Rec-
orded, engineered and mixed by Andrija Tokic at his Nashville Bomb Shelter Studio, mastered by John Baldwin, and produced by

Josephine herself.
