The Dark Crystal


urSol the Chanter

urSol the Chanter had two voices: one light and gentle for speech, one deep and resonant for song that could calm thunder or make waterfalls still. music, he said, is the most ephemeral form of sculpture and therefore the most powerful. He wore his hair tied in a club; the knots it formed were varied for each chant and loosened at the lesser conjunctions. He had the art to sing one note that made all the different stones of the valley tremble.
