About the work
Took Her is based on a 13th Century French Cathar hymn called Le Bouvier which was first written in ancient french Occitan. The hymn tells the story of a cattle herder who comes home from a long day at work to find his wife unwell by the fire. She says when I die bury me deep in the cellar. And the pilgrims when they come will ask who died here and they’ll say it was the poor Jeanne.
