About the songs.
1) "La Notte Etterna" - I think it is the best song from Emma Shaplin. We discover Emma some years ago when she was on tour in Kiev
2) "Antissa" - We discovered E.S.Posthumous and their great hit "Antissa" here at CD-Baby. May be we are the first who made the cover of CD-Baby Artist
3) "In vita di Laura" - originally it was the song written by Origen for lyrics of Canzone CXLI by FRANCESCO PETRARCA . But there were so many interesting instrumental movements in this piece therefor we decided to include instrumental version of this song to this album
4) "Anytime, Anywhere" - great adaptation of Albinony's Adagio made by Sarah Brightman & Co.
5) "Pie Jesu" - another song from Sarah Brightman repertoire. Anrew Lloyd Weber wrote this piece for Sarah, his former wife many years ago and I think it is the best piece from his Requiem
6) "Una Fortiva Lagrima" - famous aria from G.Donizetti opera "Love beverage"
7) "Conquest of Paradise" - it is variation of "La Folia" made by Vangelis. "La Folia" is one of the most remarkable phenomena in the history of music. Lully, Bach, Corelli, Rachmaninoff and many more composers used and made variations on "La Folia"
8) "Tender passion". This song has about 1000 downloads per week over Internet and you can also download this song for free at http://music.download.com/origen
9) "Time to Say Goodbye" - as I know the first who sung this masterpiece was Andrea Bocelli but actually duet Sarah Brightman & Andrea Bocelli inspired us to sing this song.
10) "Wedding canon"- it is adaptation of famous Pachelbel's Canon in D. Many centuries ago this music was used during wedding ceremonies.
11) "Hodu Ladonai" - adaptation of old traditional Jewish song
12) & 13) Mozart in the trance and Lacrimosa are two pieces written by Mozart and adapted by Alexsey Zakharenko
We express our hearty thanks to Chamber Choir "Kiev" (see www.cdbaby.com/anthology) for their vocal support.
