Now and then over the years we have been asked for notations to our music, and especially Shadows of the sun. None of us are schooled musicians and so we have passed on. We always made our music by way of intuition.
In 2012 we began working with musicologist and composer Martin Romberg, who arranged our commission Messe I.X–VI.X for orchestra – the opportunity presented itself. Martin told us he had been thinking about establishing a sheet music publishing imprint and that he wanted to score albums and groups that would typically fall off the classic song book racks.
We are honoured that this album – perhaps our most hymnal – is the first to be put to paper. Thank you, Martin. We welcome the raven.
