    Zeus' Earthly Home
    The Forgotten Island
    The Banished Lands
    Desert Ocean
    The Underworld
    - River Styx
    - Tartarus etc..
    Paradise
    Holy city in the clouds
    Limbo
    Forest of Fire
    Beneath the cracks - bottom of the sea

    Just a few that sparked my interest there
    Tear your dreams asunder. Every broken word.

    The Coronach

    From Wikipedia:

    A coronach (also written coranich, corrinoch, coranach, cronach, etc.) is the Scottish Gaelic equivalent of the Goll, being the third part of a round of keening, the traditional improvised singing at a death, wake or funeral in the Highlands of Scotland and in Ireland. Though observers have reported hearing such songs in Ireland or in the Scottish Highlands, and melodies have been noted down and printed since the 18th century, audio recordings are rare; not only was the practice dying out or being suppressed through the 19th century, but it was also considered by its practitioners to have been a very personal and spiritual practice, not suitable for performance or recording.

    The Scottish border ballad The Bonny Earl of Murray is supposedly composed in the tradition of the coronach.

    Schubert's Opus 52 No 4 (D 836) set words from Sir Walter Scott's Lady of the Lake under the title Coronach, for female choir with piano accompaniment.
    That Schubert piece is here:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u-GzTj5BZwU

    From Lady of the Lake,
    Coronach:

    He is gone on the mountain,
    He is lost to the forest,
    Like a summer - dried fountain,
    When our need was the sorest.
    The font reappearing
    From the raindrops shall borrow,
    But to us comes no cheering,
    To Duncan no morrow!

    The hand of the reaper
    Takes the ears that are hoary,
    But the voice of the weeper
    Wails manhood in glory.
    The autumn winds rushing
    Waft the leaves that are serest,
    But our flower was in flushing
    When blighting was nearest.

    Fleet foot on the correi,
    Sage counsel in cumber,
    Red hand in the foray,
    How sound is thy slumber!
    Like the dew on the mountain,
    Like the foam on the river
    Like the bubble on the fountain,
    Thou art gone, and for ever.
