ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Music inspired by water: as simple as rain and as complex as the ocean. These compositions were a gift to me. In many of these pieces, I simply sat down at the piano and played. The result was magic, meditative, reflective and calming. Originally intended to be instrumental, the four vocals were added, with the intention that the voice should be an additional instrument.

The Coombe begins with morning light shining into the ravine, glinting on the small river below, a tributary of the Chagrin River.

The Water Is Wide/We Are As One is a tribute to my muse, James, with additional lyrics reflecting the depths of true love.

The legend of the mermaid has existed since ancient times, with sightings in first century AD by Pliny the Elder, in 1493 by Christopher Columbus, in 1608 by Henry Hudson, and as recent as 2009 in Kiryat Yam, Israel. Images of mermaids can even be found on ancient Greek coins. Muir Oigh, often shortened to the Gaelic word Merrow, means literally Sea Maiden. The mermaid song is said to be enticing, enchanting and sung in aeolian mode.

The Ocean and Tir na nOg: Isle in the Sea both began with a 528 Hz frequency sound, often thought to have a healing effect. The legend of Tir na nOg, "The Land of the Young," is centered in Irish mythology, a land of fairies, a land where the wind is gentle, the sky is always blue and no one ever ages or dies.

The Swan at Streatley is a lovely place. One afternoon, as I was having soup and tea on the terrace outside, a swan came swimming over to visit. The CD cover captures the beauty of that wintry day and the charm of the local boats and cottages lining the Thames.

The clanging church bells at the beginning of The Gondolier were recorded in Venice as we rode by on a gondola. The Venetian canals are silent and brooding, except when the crush of tourists or Carnevale revelers invade the streets.

The history of Leeds Castle is an adventure. The Moat is based on a Trotto medieval dance melody, sung by a young lady-in-waiting. She laments the death of her Queen in 1290, and marvels how rapidly the seasons pass by in the countryside of Maidstone. The beautiful black swans are a defining feature of Leeds.

The Atlantic Ocean is always amazing, from Plymouth to the coast of North Carolina. The undulating waves have a rhythm all their own as they lap at the shore and our feet, while the tides move as they have done for centuries.

Relax and enjoy.
Rebecca
