Songs from Silence

by Sally Kidwell

These melodies whispered to me and woke me from dreams in the silence of winter nights. In these moments we find solace, revelation and wonder. This is the music of pleasure and pain, love and loss, passion and prayer.

She is part of the Whisperings family and has performed at the Artist Gatherings in Costa Mesa, CA. She has played in many venues in the United States and abroad-classical, religious, musical theater and piano bar.

"The best sound to start the day in a relaxing way." - Martino Vergnaghi, Milan, Italy
"...there is nobody composing songs that are remotely like yours. I appreciate your beautiful sense of melody,motive, structure and harmony." - Michael Dulin, recording artist and composer.
"I am sure the lovely beauty of your music will be recognized by many in the days and years to come..There is a nostalgic loveliness to your renderings" - Simon1C, UK

Track Liner Notes:
1. Songs from Silence-This is meant to seem a little like an improvisation, maybe after the concert is over. Just a few notes at the piano, a short detour into another key.
2. Years May Go By-I loved him once, but years have crept by. Years of separation. Years of silence. Years of solitude.
3. Fireflies-I think of children trying to catch fireflies in the dark. Then I think of parents and grandparents resting, lost in their own thoughts.
4. She Weeps Over Rahoon-Inspired by the James Joyce poem of the same name. "Rain on Rahoon falls softly, softly falling where my dark lover lies calling at gray moonrise..."
5. Kathy's Waltz-My memory of a young girl-innocent, lovely.
6. Evolution of a Song-First the whisper of a melody, then more rhythm, more passion. finally a return to the source.
7. When I Was Young-Sometimes happy, sometimes troubled, but always dreaming of the joy and love I hoped to find.
8. Rachel, Mary and Akiva-"Rachel weeping for her children and refusing to be comforted, because they are no more." (Jer. 31:15b) Not Rachel alone, but all the mothers and fathers of all nations at war. Akiva is a Hebraic/Aramaic name sometimes meaning "to protect" or "shelter".
9. Celebration-Celebrate life. Celebrate friendship. Be joyful.
10. Flight of Fancy-Let yourself go. Let your mind dance. Even when you're sad, look for a chance to be surprised by beauty.
11. Transit of Venus-Love comes and goes-bittersweet, full of promise, passion and pain. Love with your whole heart, with awe and gratitude.
12. Celtic Lullaby. A simple melody filled with love and a little sadness. It has been said that a mother is always praying for her child, no matter what else she may be doing.
13. Song in the Night-Alone in the night I awaken and I long for you.
14. Prayer Ascending-May the God of all the nations hear our prayers and bless us. Peace. Shalom.
