The Red Masque's CD, Victoria and the Haruspex, includes the 24-minute improvised piece "Haruspex," which features, among other oddities, musical china doll, toy piano and operatic vocalizations in an unknown language. The darkly psychedelic "Birdbrain" features lyrics by Percy Bysshe Shelley. "Afterloss" is a flamenco-influenced song featuring acoustic guitar, concert harp, percussion and vocals, with lyrics taken from Shakespeare's Sonnet 90. A fourth track, "Cenotaph," features solo concert harp material by The Red Masque's Nathan-Andrew Dewin.
