This rare and never edited on CD album, produced by Gus Dudgeon, is a spoken word record of Taupin reading his poems over a variety of musical backings (among the others Shawn Phillips...). The string arrangiaments are by the famous Robert Kirby (Nick Drake, Al Stewart...).
A short comment by TEB fan (& musician) Sedayne, that tracked down the link:

"The first of the two Coff tracks ["Sisters of the Cross", 2.39] features subdued droning viola which could, in all honesty, be anyone. The second ["Le petite Marionette", 1.33] is pure Coff - featuring multi-tracked pizzicato & bowed violin very reminiscent of the A&H soundtrack. Well worth a listen I'd say!".

So, download the record!
