Peregrina EnChantica is a London-based vocal ensemble, founded by composer Zory Burner in early 2014. Named after the honored since ancient times Peregrine falcon, the ensemble aims to 'enchant' audiences with performances of its unique music.

Zory is currently developing a song-cycle of choral songs, thematically related and inspired by birds and nature, featuring the ensemble's first released single, “Sub Dio” (Under The Open Sky), written in contribution to last year’s National Bird Vote campaign, organized and lead by David Lindo (the Urban Birder).

Forgotten Names

Peregrina EnChantica’s latest single, “Forgotten Names” was written as special dedication to the highly endangered species of birds, with the Hen Harrier in mind. The ensemble presented the song on first day of the Hen Harrier Day weekend at the RSPB Rainham Marshes Nature Reserve, Saturday 6th August 2016.

Forgotten Names

Music & lyrics by Zory Burner


Can you tell me how this all began,
distance in between, forgotten names

Can you tell me how long has it been
since we were seen,
we have been falling


How many of us were left behind,
How many of us are left?
Are there any more for us to find?
Where are the rest?

How many of us are left,
am I one of the last
of my own kind?


Open up your eyes a little more,
Open up your eyes
take a look at what we're singing for
Take a look above

Open up your eyes and see
the chaos on the rise,
hear our cries


Chorus:

I still remember what it is like to feel the wind beneath my wings

I would like to remind you about the kings up in the sky, and so we sing


Don't you miss the way I soar in flight
Don't you miss the way I fly
Don't you miss my shape against the light
Don't you miss my flight

How long do you think it would take to feel the flame
to bring back my name


Chorus:

I still remember what it is like to feel the wind beneath my wings
I would like to remind you about the kings up in the sky, and so we sing

No more distance, no forgotten names
