1. Crystal Waters
Still waters, moving waves, a fall …
Water brings life …
Be still with it, flow with it, do not try to hold it in your hands
Harnessing the power of water.
5. I Will Sing Your Praises
His love for you and me.
8. Largo, Fantasmi Presto, Presto
Antonio Vivaldi was a priest, musician and composer.
It is said that once, in the middle of giving a homily, he left the pulpit and disappeared into the sacristy to jot down some music. The congregation was puzzled. When Vivaldi was asked to explain himself to his cardinal he simply answered that surely this music was a divine inspiration since it was given to him right in the middle of mass.
The cardinal asked to have the music played to him and was so moved that he relieved Vivaldi of having to lead mass to give him more time for composing.
9. La Fiesta
It’s all yours.
10. Geh´ unter der Gnade
Whoever you are, whatever you do, nothing takes away the grace of God
11. Dreams Do Come True
Dick Le Mair: “Indeed, though this is only a small thing, a dream that has come true …
Not so long ago I had this dream, I was in a place where lots of people were singing.
It was in a church.
Not protestant or catholic or anything like that, just a congregation of people singing …
And they sang this melody.
I woke up, got out of my bed in the middle of the night and wrote down this melody.
If you listen to it you hear a dream that did come true …”
Water and time are flowing, exuberant and beautiful beyond ending ages.
Classic meets Latin, traditions meet …
14. The Glow Remains
Things to remember, things to enjoy …
Never lose the glow of what was wonderful, of what is wonderful, of what will remain
