ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
'VISION OF TRUTH' -- 55 MINS (14 songs)
By Sonia King

This is the Album that God has wanted me to do for this prophetic 'time' & 'season' now for, truly, 'Summer' is near! The songs are for edification and are, this time around, far more classical-sounding and choristic than my previous works.

FAN COMMENTS
[U.K. Fan];
"I've listened to the whole album now and it's a mix between an oratorio and a symphony and it's certainly a new avenue for you. And a good one. It's one of those pieces that will grow on people as time goes on and I was right in my earlier thinking about layers and developing themes.

The arrangement is heavy on the synthesisers, but that's no bad thing as you're letting your wings spread wide with this piece. There are hints of Chinese rhythms just over halfway through and more than a nod to composers such as Vaughan-Williams, Ravel, Philip Glass and Mike Oldfield.

It will take some further listening to really appreciate it, but it is a good step away from your normal output. You should try it again and if you do so, get some software to help you explore this aspect of music writing even further. ... (Very impressed)." //
END QUOTE

Dear viewers, after a passage of 11years [since producing my popular 2003 Album; 'In The Light'] I was inspired to compose new songs again! And Bible students know well that, when the 7th trumpet sounds, the 'Mystery of God' shall then be fulfilled!

The lyrics in 10 (of 14 songs) were inspired by both Old & New Testament Bible Scriptures, which are detailed inside the album cover. (4 songs are instrumental only).

BRIEF STORY BEHIND THE MAKING OF THIS FIFTH ALBUM:-
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
It was between 7 Mar. 2014 & 24 April 2014 that I was inspired by God to write many new songs; 14 of which comprise this Album 'Vision of Truth.' Never before had I felt so inspired and I also felt renewed in zeal and energy.

Now, this is the FIRST time I've arranged (& recorded) all the songs myself so, in that respect, the album is rather special. It's also the first time I recorded them in a non-studio environment due to the need to cut down costs. Even so the project still turned out to be rather costly! The project was also hugely challenging but also extremely enjoyable. I put all my heart into its production working both day & night (into the early hours of the morning) for 11 months.

FAN COMMENTS

[AMERICAN FAN]:
"We received your [CD: Vision of Truth] this last week & played it ... It was both beautiful & fitting for.. [Friday] evening. Each album of yours has truly been unique to the previous one. I'd say that is a sign of a truly artistic musician. Thank you for inspiring me & so many others through your music. All your works have been WONDERFUL!" // END QUOTE

[U.K. FAN]:
"This is an good piece of music with a lot to celebrate, not just the music, but also the effort you’ve put into it and the fact you’ve branched out into something different. Track 8 is the best piece on the album and sounds great. Overall, for a near-classical piece, it lacks orchestral depth, needing more instrumentation for it’s foundations in most places, but the lighter parts are excellent...

THE GLASSY SEA -- This is an excellent opening to the album, very triumphal and sets the theme perfectly. The melody was replayed to great effect throughout the piece. The fade out at the end is very effective, leaving the listener focused.

THE FIELDS ARE WHITE -- The opening solo melody is good and leads perfectly into the rest of the piece. There is a good movement to the piece when the drumbeat starts and the piano variation adds to the piece immensely. The middle eastern drum at 3:30 is effective.

NOT BY MIGHT -- The opening bars of folk style vocals, guitar and synth are good.
BRAES O’ LOCH LOMOND -- The melody evocates Scotland very well.
HIS STEADFAST LOVE -- The rolling drums.. are excellent as is the Gong/Cymbal at 2:55.

REJOICE! -- The synth sound is… repetitive, but the melody is still effective. The emotion of the piece is more reflective than joyful.
THINE IS THE KINGDOM -- The use of the piano here is better than anywhere else on the album. From 3:45 it feels very Kingdom-like.

THE SKY -- This is a superb piece of music. The guitar and vocals are perfect. The singing, the words, the arrangement bring to mind the sky.

THE DEAD SHALL ARISE -- The opening melody has echoes of Handel’s messiah and is an excellent introduction to the track. The military feel… at 1:45 suits the piece perfectly. The trumpet at 2:45 and the Organ sound at 3:10 are both excellent pieces of arrangement.

THE SEVEN CHURCHES -- The opening is very good and places us in the right mood for the journey through the seven churches.
The melody feels true to the area of the seven churches

GO OUT TO MEET HIM -- The repetition of ‘Go out to meet him’, is an excellent idea, as is the snippet of the African-style chorus and choral melody.

THE LORD IS MY SONG -- The background rhythm from 3:05 is excellent. It suits the theme of the track perfectly. It’s happy and tuneful.

TRUTH SETS US FREE -- This has the makings of a joyful piece, but only in places.

AS THE EAGLE SOARS -- One of the best pieces on the album. While the melody and arrangement don’t fit the title, it is still a good piece to end the album with… The melody from 2:00 is excellent and the arrangement builds well towards the end." // END

OTHER FAN COMMENTS

[ENGLISH FAN]
TRK 1: “The Glassy Sea”. Was that your voice at the end? [SK reply: No. There is no singing in this song].
TRK 2: “The Fields are White” - I like the Eastern feel.
TRK 3: “Not by Might’ is different but I can still see/hear your touch. I love the deep note near the end that joins with your timbre. [This album] is more classical.

TRK 4: “Braes O’Loch Lomond” - There is a nice strong [Scottish] identity. The spikes, the higher stuff, harmonising, plucking out, work well. It sounds like your music. I like the ending - feathery.

TRK 5: “His Steadfast Love” - I like the scattering of star dust.
TRK 6: “Rejoice!” - the tune, the singing and music all come together.
TRK 7: ‘Thine is the Kingdom’ - are you (Sonia) playing the piano? [SK reply: Yes , best I was able - not being a pianist!].
TRK 8: “The Sky” - I don’t know what the instrument is, but it sounded kind of ‘jazzy’ in the latter half. It worked really well. I liked it.
TRK 9: In ‘The Dead Shall Arise” - the beginning reminded me of an old hymn, but then it changed. O, I like this!
TRK 10: ‘The Seven Churches’ - I don’t know why but it gives you a feeling of something calming - soothes the spirit.
TRK 11: “Go Out To Meet Him” - I like the drums at the end.
TRK 12: “The Lord’s My Song” - I’m wondering whether you sang/recorded songs in the order listed on the album? [SK: No].
TRK 13: “The Truth Sets Us Free” - I enjoyed the piano bit.
TRK 14: “As the Eagle Soars” - the counter point (or rhythm) with the drums really work.

I can see the amount of work you put into this album." // END QUOTES
