Passion & Prayer


Passion & Prayer:
The Complete Soundtrack from Saint Etheldreda Enhanced for Audio CD.
Instrumental Music Compilation.

The music in this album Passion & Prayer is both meditative in places and filled with phrases of passion where several tracks grow and lift the mind to crave closeness with God.  The instrumental style is immediately recognisable as artist Bernadette Bevan's unique sound fusing a précis of ancient sound and contemporary, ethereal soundscapes.  Let the stirring Gypsy violin, Guitars, Piano, Celtic Harps, Ancient Flutes, Mystical Winds and Choral Voices create and absorb your spirit in a mystical mood.  This album is both uplifting and meditative and tells a story, the story of love, passion, faith, exodus, pursuit, prayer, struggle, steadfastness and joy.  Allow the extraordinary Spirit of ancient Catholic England, faith and devotion take you on a journey of music and imagination.  Perfect as background music or for chilling out, for becoming lost in thought, prayer and meditation or simply to absorb yourself in the tunes.

“I have been writing music since the age of fourteen. It began with piano solos but quickly developed into my own original style of blending all the instruments that I love such as ancient wind instruments, tin whistles, recorders, harps, guitars, baroque guitars, medieval lutes and strings, epic film strings, full choirs, Gregorian voices, beautiful choirs, the voices of the Elves and so many more! I am inspired by film scores such as ‘Lord of the Ring’s’ and ‘Braveheart’. I also love England, its’ landscapes, hills, ruined castles, history, lighthouses, sea towns, harbours, forests. When I write, I picture all that is ancient England and take this visual imagery and try to tell its’ story through music. Each original piece, tells its own story”. – Bernadette Bevans 

Length and Format:

'Passion & Prayer' is available worldwide on Audio CD and is 42 minutes in length.


This instrumental music CD was created because of the demand for the film scores from Mary's Dowry Productions to become available.  All of the films from Mary's Dowry Productions have their own original music score written directly to the picture.  A lot of people have enjoyed the original music and atmosphere of the films and have asked for the music from these films on audio CD.  Bernadette Bevans has been compiling instrumental CD albums for over two decades, filled with original tracks in her own musical style and this original style of music composition is used extensively throughout each film production.  Any CD from Mary's Dowry Productions has Bernadette's unique sound and style and will be enjoyed by all.  This particular album takes the music score that Bernadette wrote for the film 'Saint Etheldreda: Abbess of Ely' and enhances it for audio CD.  The instruments used in this album are both ancient and new, fusing frame drums and harps with choral voices and guitars, with whole meditative sections using cinematic strings, symphonic choirs and solo violin.  The music in this album is reflective, moving, atmospheric, uplifting and calm; there are also tracks that build and excite.
