MELODIES OF MY YOUTH

Beware upon a childhood plain
Shadows cast the drift that claims
our lineage…unspoken pain.
In memories of love ones lost
in dreams redeemed we pay the cost
of life in death, from earth to sun
the echoes of our songs un sung

Lisa Gerrard











TWILIGHT

so for as long as we're alive
while there is still a spark in us
don't waste the days on the unwanted
we are so scarce, we are so brief

Zbigniew Preisner
Translated by B&T Howard














VALLEY OF SHADOWS

Following the digital release in August 2018, the soundtrack for Norwegian film Valley of Shadows by Jonas Matzow Gulbrandsen featuring Lisa Gerrard, Józek Skrzek, Dominik Wania that has been nominated for 2018 World Soundtrack Public Choice Award is now on CD.

Caldera Records is releasing that album at the beginning of December in most of Europe, USA, Canada and Japan. You can find more information here.

From the reviews:

“The magic here exists in the pauses between shots. A baroque, Moog-ish score from Zbigniew Preisner knows when to get out of the way, and when to make its presence unequivocally known. This is the space (or silence) where a moment of uncertainty might go either way: into anxious despair, or into profound acceptance.” - Screenanarchy

“Ravishing blend of orchestral and electronic components, and chorale passages that lend a religious solemnity…” - Hollywood Reporter

The film is a comedy drama in which Cruz plays the famous 1950s movie star Macarena Granada, escaping from the glitz and glamour of Hollywood and returning to Madrid, where she will star in an epic film about Queen Isabella of Castille. It’s also a sequel to Trueba’s 1998 drama The Girl Of Your Dreams, also starring Cruz and set during the Spanish Civil War. This is the third time that the director and Cruz have worked together. Their first project together was the 1992 film Belle Époque which received the Academy Award for best foreign-language film.
