Joan of Arc - Music Inspired by Saints - SOUNDTRACK
JOAN OF ARC
The Complete Soundtrack from Saint Joan of Arc Enhanced for Audio CD.
This instrumental music album was inspired by the great mystical, spiritual and truly Catholic life of Saint Joan of Arc. I did not have a devotion to this saint until I reflected upon her life and was moved by her heroism and sacrifice as well as her great trust. Especially moving in places, I deeply felt the love of God that Saint Joan had and put this into music so that the emotion in the music truly reflects these aspects and many of the tracks are perfect for deep meditation. As each track builds upon the next you are absorbed in a journey of peace, prayer, thought and memory. Let the stirring cello, piano, Celtic harps, mystical winds, ancient flutes, guitars, pads, horns and Mystic Voices absorb and uplift. Perfect as background music, meditation, contemplation 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. This album presents the full music soundtrack for Saint Joan of Arc. It tells the story of Saint Joan, her prayer, trust and daring in the midst of battle. The music is especially poignant and moving in places where Saint Joan was betrayed. It is also mystical and ethereal reflecting her visions as well as touching upon battle with subtle horns and drums.

"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 Rings' 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 style and sound is contemporary and new" - Bernadette Bevans

The music in this album soundtrack is taken from 'St. Joan of Arc: God's Warrior Saint'. The music from this particular film is especially meditative and moving with a nice use of strings and pads, moving the heart to prayer and longing for mercy and justice. The film itself is very powerful and so inspiring that if you did not know Saint Joan before, you will be left with a new favourite saint. The music reflects this, a real hero and a significant trust in a difficult time. Following the theme of music soundtracks this album has Bernadette Bevans' usual meditative, ethereal and contemporary style of instrumentation, themes and atmosphere. A great addition to the series.
