    Default Electrify the soul

    Deliverance - A world without borders - a song by Yanni

    This song just electrified my soul. The soaring vocals, the orchestra. Pure divine inspiration.


    Yanni | Deliverance mix 9713

    This might be a better version

    Hauntingly beautiful.

    Experimental director, composer and playwright Jim Wilson recorded the sound of crickets and then slowed down the recording, revealing something so amazing. The crickets sound like they are singing the most angelic chorus in perfect harmony.

    There are songs where the composer/lyricist seem to have tapped directly into the Cosmos.
    As if they have sprung into our reality from an ultimately divine source.
    This is one of those songs for me..
    To you reading and listening to this,
    from me with love



    Song to the Siren

    Long afloat on shipless oceans
    I did all my best to smile
    'Til your singing eyes and fingers
    Drew me loving to your isle
    And you sang
    Sail to me
    Sail to me
    Let me enfold you
    Here I am
    Here I am
    Waiting to hold you
    Did I dream you dreamed about me?
    Were you here when I was forced out
    Now my foolish boat is leaning
    Broken lovelorn on your rocks
    For you sing, "Touch me not, touch me not, come back tomorrow
    Oh my heart, Oh my heart shies from the sorrow"
    Well I'm as puzzled as the newborn child
    I'm as riddled as the tide
    Should I stand amid the breakers?
    Or should I lie with death, my bride?
    Hear me sing, "Swim to me, swim to me, let me enfold you
    Here I am, here I am, waiting to hold you"

    Songwriters: Larry Beckett / Tim Buckley

    "Love is the only engine of survival.." Leonard Cohen

    this female chorus its for get some goose bumps (3 min)



    a remarkable information, is that the composer lived on XV century and
    create the polyphony, wich next ages allowed orchestras play symphonies.
    This song its only an DUET of soprano and contralto voices, to show here
    how much beautiful can be pure simple human voices, especially female

    I apologize if this is not a proper thread for this. I did a brief search for threads on poetry but couldn't find anything - perhaps I should have started a thread entitled "Inspiring Poetry and Other Writing" or something like that. Anyway, please delete if this is not the right "Place". So, I very recently bumped into this beautiful poem on FB and thought this forum was a great place to share it

    'In the light of the silent stars
    that shine on the struggling sea,
    In the weary cry of the wind and
    the whisper of flower and tree,
    Under the breath of laughter, deep in the tide of tears,
    I hear the Loom of the Weaver that
    weaves the Web of Years.
    The leaves of the winter wither
    and sink in the forest mould
    To colour the flowers of April
    with purple and white and gold:
    Light and scent and music die
    and are born again
    In the heart of a grey-haired woman
    who wakes in a world of pain.

    The hound, the fawn, and the hawk,
    and the doves that croon and coo,
    We are all one woof of the weaving and
    the one warp threads us through,
    One flying cloud on the shuttle that
    carries our hopes and fears
    As it goes thro’ the Loom of the Weaver
    that weaves the Web of Years.

    The green uncrumpling fern and the rustling dewdrenched rose
    Pass with our hearts to the Silence
    where the wings of music close,

    Pass and pass to the Timeless
    that never a moment mars,
    Pass and pass to the Darkness
    that made the suns and stars.

    Has the soul gone out in the Darkness?
    Is the dust sealed from sight?
    Ah, hush, for the woof of the ages
    returns thro’ the warp of the night!
    Never that shuttle loses one thread
    of our hopes and fears,
    As it comes thro’ the Loom of the Weaver
    that weaves the Web of Years.

    O, woven in one wide Loom thro’
    the throbbing weft of the whole,
    One in spirit and flesh, one in body and soul,
    Tho’ the leaf were alone in its falling,
    the bird in its hour to die,
    The heart in its muffled anguish,
    the sea in its mournful cry,

    One with the flower of a day,
    one with the withered moon
    One with the granite mountains
    that melt into the noon
    One with the dream that triumphs beyond
    the light of the spheres,
    We come from the Loom of the Weaver
    that weaves the Web of Years.

    Alfred Noyes'

    When I first heard this I was so entranced and overwhelmed, that all I could do was to lie in bliss with my eyes closed.

    And, of course, I had to buy the full album: a gift for the soul.
