ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
After my mother died from complications of Alzheimer's I faced the task of sorting through her possessions. As I was deciding what to keep or discard, I was struck by the thought, "These are her memories, but they were forgotten before she died". At that moment I received the title song to this album.

Track information:

1. Forgotten Memories-We all have them-moments from the past lost to the passage of time and the demands of the day.
2. Gulf Coast Pavanne-I wrote this on the beach at Biloxi, MS, a year or so after the BP oil spill. I was thinking about the wildlife harmed by that event. I was thinking how the animal kingdom can be innocent victims of our "civilization".
3. Rainbow Dreams-The rainbow is a symbol of hope and joy. Now it is also a symbol of acceptance and diversity. Lines from a hymn played at my mother's funeral: "I trace the rainbow through the rain, and find the promise is not vain, the morn shall tearless be."
4. Phrygian Rain-I wanted to write a melody that traveled between different modes: Dorian, Phrygian, Lochrian. I wanted to capture the unsettled feeling of solitude on a cold, rainy day.
5. Jerusalem-A hymn to this ancient city, home to great deeds of faith and home to such unending strife. This melody has been slightly reworked and sung as the V'Shamru at Temple Rodeph Shalom in Pittsburgh.
6. Amalena-Hearing me noodle around with this tune, my grandson Gabriel said, "Write it down, Noni." So that's what I did. When I asked him what to call it he said, "Amalena". So that's what I call it. Who is Amalena?
7. Crossroads-Here I combine a short section from Schubert's Impromptu, Opus 90, No. 4 with the traditional hymn, "Where Cross the Crowded Ways of Life".
8. Corazon de Hielo-Heart of Ice. Ever searching. Ever cold. Ever alone.
9. Cincinnati Hornpipe-An old fiddle tune from my grandfather's collection of jigs and reels. Included here to honor his memory.
10. River Songs- "Deep River" and "Shall We Gather at the River". Two timeless hymns of faith combined here to honor two different traditions.
11. First Morning-In this song I tried to capture a little of the innocence and peace of a new life.
12. Lost City-I wrote this in memory of those lost or displaced in the tsunami that struck Japan the year this was recorded.
13. Will You Wait for Me?-In another life, another time, we pledged to be reborn together. So we asked each other this question. "Will you wait for me?"
