Blome Swete Lilie Flour

Daniel Hart is one of my favorite composers . He often pairs with director, David Lowery (The Green Knight) — and has a very distinct tonality to his music. No matter how many instruments he uses — it always feels like a small collection of musicians playing in a chamber. There’s a minimalism and authenticity that reminds me of the (film) music of Nice Cave & Warren Ellis.

Blome Swete Lilie Flour stood out to me from The Green Knight soundtrack. It’s sounds like it could be a minstrel piece from The Witcher (another excellent soundtrack). The vocalist might be Daniel Hart himself — as no other singer is listed on the soundtrack. However, I haven’t yet seen The Green Knight — so I’m not sure if there’s an actor singing the section. Be as it may, I took the vocal/cello melody and interwove it in to the chord progression to create a true all-in-one fingerstyle arrangement. The end result is very medieval sounding.
