Science of the Cross - Music Inspired by Saint Edith Stein - SOUNDTRACK
Science of the Cross:
The Complete Soundtrack from Saint Edith Stein Enhanced for Audio CD.
Instrumental Music Compilation.
Saint Edith Stein's life was rich in contemplation, thought and love. Inspired by the film of her life, her sacrifice, her closeness to her sister Rosa, I fused both Jewish instruments and deep Catholic contemplative and Carmelite spiritual elements when I wrote this music creating nine tracks which absorb and build and are moving and meditative. The music soundtrack in this CD is taken from Saint Edith Stein film and enhances it for audio CD. As each track builds upon the next you are absorbed in a journey of peace, prayer, contemplation, thought and memory. Let the fusion of Mystical Female Choirs and subtle instruments such as the Armenian Duduk lift you to prayer and reflection and aid in contemplation. 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 titled 'Science of the Cross' to reflect upon the writings and Carmelite Spirituality of Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (St. Edith Stein), particularly the Science of the Cross 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
