The Reverend Burdizzo’s Hymn Book


Matthew Cash and Em Dehaney present The Reverend Burdizzo’s Hymn Book. Twenty-one tales, each  inspired by religious songs and themes. Each one entirely new and blasphemous its own unique ways. But this is not an anti-religion collection, this is a pro-creativity collection. Bodyshockers, night terrors, post-apocalyptic psychedelic sci-fi, well-known characters re-imagined and folk tales re-told. 

Tales by the firelight. Songs in the dark. Hymns sung with a heavy heart.

All are welcome in The Reverend Burdizzo’s congregation, so come one come all. Be you Muslim or Methodist, Anarchist or Atheist, Buddhist or Brahman, pull up a pew and prepare to be terrified, tantalised, disgusted and delighted.

The Reverend Burdizzo’s Hymn Book

Hymns tell tales of myriad gods. Angry gods hurling fire and brimstone at the disbelievers, promising eternal damnation in hellish post-life realms. Others sing praises of ancient feet treading on freshly tilled earth, spreading happiness and love.
Reverend Burdizzo has rounded up a congregation of voices to bring to you these new hymns. Come join him in his choir and sing these new songs of praise.

They will put the fear of God into you.
