This album is a compilation of two H.P. Lovecraft inspired vocal pieces, premiered on April 13, 2013 on Alexander Rosetti's Senior Composition Recital. The first, Fungi From Yuggoth, is a song cycle for soprano and chamber ensemble. The second, Prayer to the Old Ones, is a multi-movement piece for choir and percussion.
The music is sometimes fanciful, sometimes disturbing. Strange dream visions are explored in Fungi From Yuggoth, while Prayer to the Old Ones depicts insane cultists chanting madly to their eldritch gods.
The album also includes the two other pieces performed during the recital as bonus tracks.
