Well, it certainly does NOT work with that horrid microsoft Explorer piece of crap.
Introduction

Officially founded in 1989, the Germany based SOPOR AETERNUS & THE ENSEMBLE OF SHADOWS is one of the last of the very few dark groups/projects in Europe (in fact, on this planet), who have based the trinity of their music, poetry and visual appearance on the explicit emphasis of the highly individual expression of pain, isolation, depression, token suicides and the desperate search for the �sacred reunion�; all conceived and acted out by SOPOR's sole protagonist � � the transgendered and utterly beautiful Goddess (and likewise tragically Butoh-esque creature) ANNA-VARNEY CANTODEA.

Perhaps best described as �introverted exhibitionism�, the holistic concept of ANNA-VARNEY's ritualistic/Jungian art is not necessarily rooted in the grounds of a commonly accepted sense of aesthetics � � which is one of the many aspects that gives his/her work its serious and most unique character.

Though the music playfully fuses elements of classical, baroque, medieval, and even electronic music, the essence of SOPOR AETERNUS & THE ENSEMBLE OF SHADOWS always remains entirely �gothic�.

Despite the fact that to this very day ANNA-VARNEY still refuses to perform her magic(k)al work live in front of a human audience, SOPOR AETERNUS & THE ENSEMBLE OF SHADOWS have long gathered cult status in underground circles worldwide.

Strongly recommended to be approached only with an open heart and mind, the profound darkness (and occasionally subversive humour) of ANNA-VARNEY's multi-layered (yet fragile) art is mainly intended as a spiritual healing-process for the wounded soul

Discography
Below are the covers of the �international� editions of the wonderful SOPOR albums as licensed by SOM (that is Season Of Mist).
Unfortunately, they have done a very poor job distributing them. On top of that, SOPOR has been filed under "Metal" ... - yeah, right.� :(
Anyway, for more info, just click on the covers ...

Miss Cantodea, you truly are an artist. The world could use more of the brutal yet beautiful honesty you possess. It would be better than the piece of crap, sugarcoated place in which we are forced to live. Your music has helped me to realize the beauty in dark, strange things. I thank you tremendously for your art.
Sincerely,
Phoenix Marie
