REPOST: Hymn to Hope
« on: November 23, 2011, 03:16:42 AM »
I originally posted this to Real Life Happens but listening to it now I realized that I'd like to share this beautiful melody that truly feels like a "hymn to hope" with anyone who is interested.

Having a new Art & Music board might have something to do with this repost, too.  :whistle:

Anyway, I hope someone will enjoy this as much as I do.

"A song to remind us that there is always hope, even in despair and sorrow. Inspired by the melancholy of the traditional Irish Air, expressed by the Uilleann Pipes." -Rolf Lovland

I listened to this for the first time today while on the road. I did a lot of driving so I guess I probably heard it about 10 times or so over the course of my day.

This is a New Age piece but, hey, in under 4.5 minutes it's hard to come up with a complete symphony!

Each time I listen I find something new, whether in the melody or in the arrangement. If I had to name a theme song for my life, especially during the past 10 years, this would be my choice. The theme:  Hope is abundant, even when we can't feel it.

There is a transition part way through that initially threw me off guard; I thought a new track had started. But, as I discovered, it carries the meaning (to me) of the music to new heights and new awareness. I hope someone else enjoys this a thousandth as much as I have today.
