Sometimes when we find ourselves in turmoil and darkness angels clothed in words and music come and alight on our shoulders gently whispering. I am fortunate to be visited by those angels. Thanks for this Anchor.

a sweet and poetic comment - like a kiss on the cheek.

gorgeous, assured & strong. don’t the luckiest of us get to play the role of Atlas from time to time. this track shares that kind of strength & hope. the vocal so pure & khidir’s contribution on guitar is perfect.

It is no secret here at CCM that I am a great admirer of Anchors work.

For me the blend of vocals and backing track are superb and the emotional feel of the whole piece transcends normal boundaries and results in a work both touching and profound.

Magical moment!!

RT! you’ve been a real inspiration and a great helper too in encouraging me (its the courage in that word that counts).

radiotimes just wrote the words ‘magical moment’. I can only agree with those words. I enjoyed this one from start till the very last second.

Such a powerful delivery, I can truly feel the conflicted emotions behind every single word. Your mix isn’t perfect but those little things you add really gave this piece so much weight, and thus gives credence to such “magical moments”. Kudos!

Yes khidir - I seem to be more interested in emotions - I am basically a lyricist/singer and sometimes play cello…perfection has never been my strongest suit (especially the more technical aspects of remixing) - but I did recognize an enticing sample and thank you for posting it! It was treat to experiment with. Cheers - Anchor

I agree with Khidir about the mix, but apart from that it is definitely one of my favourites of yours. Simply beautiful.

Michel - thanks so much…if you want to have a go at reshaping this one, let me know.

Wow. Very moving, powerful stuff. The khidir material is gorgeous in its own right, but you’ve really created something special here

This may be my favorite thing you’ve ever done- it is sung so tenderly, I was moved to tears. I think we should place this under the ‘homesick’ file. *sob*. I don’t really have a problem with the mix- it sounds far away and lost, just like the song.

I can hear this song is where you grow and feel comfortable in your romantic style. The original track again is superb, so simple but beautiful which is sometimes a coactive thing I think.

I need a lot of time to understand the lyrics. But it is worth to invest the time because you have such an exceptionel sense for words and phrasing. I always loved this aspect on music. This is a great remix and is has sort of Joni Mitchell mood on her romantic /quiet songs. Really nice work you can be proud of!

Funny how a glass or five of 2007 Cepage Syrah rose focuses the senses and makes me appreciate such enigmatic, beautiful music. Finding words to illustrate the impact this work has is difficult.

This track is far bigger than the sum of its parts.
