Margaret Ward: Instrumental Music Inspired by Catholic England
The Complete Soundtrack from Saint Margaret Ward Enhanced for Audio CD.
Elizabethan England, a time of sacrifice, deep prayer and fervent Catholic solidarity among recusants. This album presents the music soundtrack taken from Saint Margaret Ward film but enhances it for CD in a meditative and uplifting compilation of seven tracks. 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 and pads absorb and uplift. 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.

Track 2 - I Have Trusted in Your Loving Kindness (4:27).
Track 3 - My Heart Shall Rejoice in Your Salvation (4:44).
Track 4 - You are the God Who Works Wonders (6:00).
Track 5 - O LORD, how manifold are your works! In wisdom has thou made them all (5:37).
Track 6 - My yoke is easy, and my burden is light (3:26).
Track 7 - Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise. (4:57)
"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 voice,s 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
Length and Format:
'Margaret Ward' is available worldwide on Audio CD and is 32 minutes in length.
This audio CD is part of a series of instrumental music albums 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 are scored musically to and 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. With over eighty films created the past decade this series should continue to grow as more of the soundtracks are made available on audio CD. The music in this series is similar to the Holy Spirit music series in that it is mostly reflective, moving, atmospheric, uplifting and calm; the difference is that the entire CD album is taken from the music from a particular film so the tracks are longer in places and follow the growing theme of the film it was written to as opposed to individual tracks that have been written especially for audio CD. The genre, style and instrumentation used is the same. This album brings the entire soundtrack from 'Saint Margaret Ward' film to audio CD and is one of my favourites, drawing upon many of my favourite Elizabethan instruments and reflecting the great Catholic spirituality and solidarity of the recusants of the time.
