So, the Swans are here at last. Been mentioned so much in the story it's fun to finally be here at this moment. I debated what sort of sound to have the swans make.

Have you youtubed swan sounds? I have.

As this is a fantastical world (and not just any old swans) I didn't want to try to mimic the natural swan sound.

Eala is Irish for swan. It seeemed appropriate since I pull lot inspiration from the Irish story "King of Birds". And it has such a lyrical quality -- lending to the idea of the sad swan singing (say that 3 times).

Is it the last Swan Song?
