AUBB Mix - Delirien (Henry VI & WWI)

Okay, so the other day I talked about how much I loved a recent fanmix I worked on. Well, Today is the day!! Below you'll find my fanmix, Delirien. It goes with lareinenoire 's story of the same name about Henry VI and WWI done for au_bigbang.
Here's her story summary:
Theirs was a golden world.

In the giddy years of the early twentieth century, the families of York and Lancaster seem to have come to an uneasy truce when Humphrey Lancaster befriends young Richard York and offers him a chance to mend his wrecked fortunes. What neither of them anticipates is the war that will destroy everything they know.

This AU transposes the events and characters of Shakespeare's Henry VI, Part I to Edwardian England and follows the York and Lancaster families as love, lies, and fateful choices conspire to fracture this careful peace on the eve of the First World War.

The fic contains an excess of waltzes -- some more dramatic than others -- strong female protagonists, World War I-era violence, major character death (as per the source text), and a lot of filling in of empty spaces in the source text.

Story by lareinenoire here at AO3

This mix became huge as I was working on it. There's a total of 18 songs for the mix proper, with 4 bonus tracks for a total of 22 songs. It's about an hour and a half worth of music, and is best listened to in order, since I took deliberate care with placing songs that flowed well together. (I think.)

I LOVE LOVE this mix. I've been listening to it pretty much non-stop since I put the whole thing together. Even, took it with me to listen to on my trip to Omaha over the weekend. There's a piano/violin theme I tried to stick with in a lot of the music, but obviously, the rock love took over at some point, and it got a little heavier towards the end. The bonus tracks are two songs that are a little more electronic, but I really wanted to keep them in, an instrumental version of one of the songs, and Leonard Cohen's "Take this Waltz" because it fits the story, but not necessarily the rest of the mix. If you download it, I'd love to hear what you think.

I hope you enjoy it! One of the things I did when putting it together was try and make it good reading music - so I hope it works for you!

Just wanted to drop you a note to say that the fan mix goes wonderfully while reading the fic. My only problem was my own - I read too fast to enjoy the whole of it together.

Hi! I've been meaning to comment on your fanmix for a while (circumstances involving computer/user error interfered) & I finally found where it was to leave a comment. Anyhow... I absolutely love this! Fantastic job with the mix - and the art! Thank you so much for putting this together & sharing it. :)
