|Terra Terra – The Aqurarius Era|
|Studio album 2nd part of The Accacha Chronicles by Nicholas Lens|
|Released||1999 and 2005|
Terra Terra – The Aquarius Era is a music drama by Nicholas Lens. It is the second part of the operatic trilogy The Accacha Chronicles, following the successful first part Flamma Flamma. In 12 sections, the score combines orchestra, chorus and six operatic voices that contrast with the eerie tonalities of two female nasal-natural singers.
