As each track builds upon the next you are absorbed in a journey of peace, prayer, thought and memory. Let the fusion of Gregorian Chant and subtle instruments lift you to prayer and reflection. Perfect as background music, or for chilling out, for becoming lost in thought, prayer or to simply absorb yourself in the tunes these original soundtracks will help unwind and calm. The music in this album is subtitled 'Dark Night' to reflect upon the writings of Saint John of the Cross, particularly the Dark Night of the Soul which has inspired this album. The instrumental style is immediately recognisable as Bernadette Bevans' unique sound of meditative music, spiritual instrumental music.

“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 and although historical in inspiration, my sound is contemporary and new”. – Bernadette Bevans
