“The Ravens’ Feast” sounds like a timeless folk song, composed of a simple, repeated melodic figure that gives way to a soaring resolution in the last third of the minute-and-a-half or so track. As far as I can tell, however, it’s an original composition that showcases the clear, confident voices of Annie Ford along with Valerie Holt and Anne Matthews of the Lonely Coast. This is sparse, gripping Americana of the highest order, somber and ghostly and a wonderful addition to the vocals-only Ball of Wax collection.
