Album Notes
The Imperial Forbidden City in Beijing, China is an impressive experience, its fabric immortalised in the buildings - the Monumental Gate of Heavenly Peace adjoining Tiananmen Square and the inner courts of the Palace of Earthly Tranquility.
My own family once lived in Varanasi during 1876-1881. I was moved and inspired by the living past of this place. Recorded sounds enhance this soundscape - arrival at the ghat on the banks of the River Ganges for the evening Fire Ceremony (Aarti) and sounds from the gardens of the Hotel Surya.
Rajasthan (Land of Kings) bursts with colour. Samples of nature at the gardens of the Taj Mahal, Agra at dawn when the mausoleum glistens in the rising sun like crystalline sugar.
My Heart Weeps take the literary reference of Paul Verlaine (1844-1896) as a point of inspiration - his poem 'Il pleure dans mon coeur comme il pleut sur la ville', possibly itself taking inspiration from Rimbaud ... a painful lament.
Hans Leo Hassler's (1564-1612) 'Mein G'müt ist mir verwirret' was combined by the text 'O Haupt voll Blut und Wunden' by Paul Gerhardt and used most famously in Bach's St. Matthew Passion.
Sleep has an ambiguous tonality centering around the warmth of D flat major.
The Wagnerian, sultry and languorous Ecstasy puts the piano centre stage where the voice normally floats. It is one of the gems of French Song (of a few gems left by Henri Duparc, 1848-1933).
