Echoes from April

Faithful readers may be wondering how Carla’s concert went.  It’s taken a while to get hold of these great photos (merci Gerald), which give a good idea of the atmosphere.  It was a hugely successful event, with full houses for both dates and a powerful experience for all of us.  Carla is a tremendously engaging performer – as you can see – and the audience loved her music.

We are still waiting for an audio file of the concert, but meanwhile, here is the text of one of the songs – words by Elena Hoyer, set to music by Carla and sung by Kate.

Corridor 

Down the corridor of my family tree

Hidden skeletons silently beg

to come into the light,

Like dangerous fireflies

And then . . .

 

So let’s take a walk down memory lane,

The longing of a long forgotten land

Exile – and dreams to come.

The rising of a fuller moon

So far . . .

 

So many times – You cried and bled and fled away

My dear Elders – I swear I’ll try to heal your wounds

Leave it to me – I’ll find a way to set us free.

Open the book –

Where do I fit in?

Where do I belong?

I am the black sheep,

I’m the question mark,

I’m the bearer of tomorrow and the early morning star . . . .

                                                                                                dancing on chaos.

 

Down the corridor of my family tree

Forgotten heroes send me strength

And hope – For my blue days,

The falling of the golden leaf

And yet . . .

 

So let’s take a walk down memory lane

I see their shifting shapes dissolving . . . .

Silence – heaven and back

Leaving behind a trail of roses

For me.
