About the Track
The "call and response" nature of this adagio, between solo harpsichord and then harpsichord and string orchestra together is intended to illustrate the joys and struggles each soul experiences throughout its spiritual journey and the resulting multiplying of beauty, rhythmic synchroicity, harmony and fulfillment when a truly compatible soul joins it. Although the individual soul is beautiful to begin with, together with its soulmate, both souls complete the journey as one!
"Adagio" was a tempo indication from Italian literally meaning "at ease" and thus Adagios have come to be performed in a leisurely manner. Many adagios range in expressivity from sorrowful to meditative to inspirational. Some famous adagio's that influenced Journey of the Spirit included Albinoni's Adagio, Bach's Air on a G String, and even Mozart's Laudate Dominum near the conclusion of the work.
Realized and produced by Mr. Mortensen with various Orchestral Sample Libraries and Digital Audio Workstations.
