Secret Garden

"This is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful recordings ever created. It will touch your very soul with its gentle classical feel but has tender, melancholy undertones as well. The discourse between the well executed violin and the fluid piano are poignant. Now and then, this recording elicits an emotional response bringing one to the remembrance of some long forgotten memory. This music seems to have the power to encircle one with the warmth of utter and complete love.

Irish violinist Fionnuala Sherry and Norwegian pianist/keyboardist Rolf Lovland join in magical duo. Ethereal strings, whistles, percussion, flute and angelic voices generously flourish this highly sentimental recording that is tenderly romantic and divinely magical. You will find love, memories and even some tears in The Secret Garden"

you can find this here and also listen to parts of their works.

Secret Garden is:
Fionnuala Sherry and Rolf Lovland.
Music composed, arranged and produced by Rolf Lovland
Co-produced by Fionnuala Sherry
Recorded and mixed by Andrew Boland, Windmill Lane Studio, Dublin
New album title: once in a red moon

Secret Garden’s musical ideas are built on organic melodies telling their own stories, simplicity and straight from the heart performances. With our new album “once in a red moon” we wanted to retain these basic elements, but also explore new areas in our musical universe, and challenge our own creative thoughts. During this process we also discovered that this development was a circle – like an orbit in our creative universe taking us around to the intimacy and emotions of where Secret Garden once originated .read more...

this is the lyrics of one of their works:

Hush - lay down your troubled mind
The day has vanished and left us behind
And the wind - whispering soft lullabies
will soothe - so close your weary eyes.

Let your arms enfold us
through the dark of night
Will your angels hold us
till we see the light.

Sleep - angels will watch over you
and soon beautiful dreams will come true
Can you feel spirits embracing your soul
so dream while secrets of darkness unfold
