Diagrammatic score

In 1967 Delia created the track The Visitation with David Vorhaus and Brian Hodgson for the 1968 album An Electric Storm.

A draft of the text for the album cover[1] reads:

'The Visitation' provokes both fear and sorrow, (stereo
essential here - headphones: wow!, but be careful).
Others will arouse more pleasurable sensations.

Over 11 minutes long, The Visitation took nearly three months to finish.[2]
