If the Grand Canyon is where one sees God, then Secret Garden is where one hears God ... (well, at least it is 100% true for me)!
I chanced upon the music of Secret Garden more than a decade ago while browsing at the music store. Yes, those days we did a lot of that before iTune was invented. It was one of my greatest finds in life. It still is.
Through Fionnuala's beautiful rendition of Løvland's incredible compositions, the duo made it possible to get in touch with our souls. I don't know about you, but I find it amazingly easy to get in touch with my own soul when I listen to the music of Secret Garden. Incredible, isn't it? How often can one actually truly says that one has seen God, or has heard God, or perhaps more believable for most people, to have been touched deeply by something external? Ok, it's true there are some like my mom who got emotional (like crying crazily, trust me, i'm not exaggerating!) over some soap operas... but me, hehe... nah, when I'm truly touched by something or someone, it's like the earth moving underneath one's feet! So, yes, Secret Garden did it so subtly and yet so poetically, I've been moved beyond tears (many times...).
Am I making sense to you? Probably not... oh well, why don't you just listen for yourself and try to describe them in words if you were impressed with their works? Otherwise, stay away from me! :-) We're from different planets!
