Hi there and good day to you all ...
I purchased an album yesterday which has just been released called Immortal Memory by Lisa Gerrard & Patrick Cassidy, it really is beautiful in places and has a certain uplifting meloncholy throughout. I know that sounds contradictory, but really, the first few tracks really tug at the heart strings.
If you need an aural and highly textured experience, this album is worth going for. It really helped lift my mood and is playing in the background as I work.
One track features the Lords prayer sung in Aramaic taken from the Peshitta version of the Holy Scriptures.
If you do not know who Lisa Gerrard is, she used to sing with a group called Dead Can Dance and is probably most noted for her vocal work in the film Gladiator.
Do you have any recommendations for other uplifting musical experiences?
