~Secret Garden~

Somewhere within us all there is a secret garden. A garden in which we can seek refuge when times are rough, or retire to in joy or contemplation. For years I have visited my own secret garden in search of organic harmony and melody. -- Rolf Lovland
In 1994 I met an artist who through the soulful simplicity of her instrument gave my songs a voice. She is the famed Irish violinist Fionnuala Sherry. Together we have tended the secret garden - and the crop is here for your picking. It is my sincere wish that by uncovering some of our secrets, you will pay a visit to your own garden. -- Rolf Lovland

This was a concert of feelings, for feelings - expressed in art and music. Fionnuala Sherry's emotional, crystal clear violin, Steinar Ofsdal's near weeping flutes, the etherial harp and voice of the Irish Katie MacMannam (known previously from Riverdance), directed by Rolf Lovland's sensitive piano and synthesizer playing ... Secret Garden is nearly a completely unique dimension in today's music. -- Johnny Andreassen
People often ask what kind of music Secret Garden is. Is it classical, Norwegian, or Irish traditional music, world music or new age? I don't know. I only know that the music comes straight from the heart, and contains elements of all this. -- Rolf Lovland
We don't want to dictate to our listeners as to what kind of music this is, or what kind of message the music conveys. The idea of a 'secret garden' is that everyone has their own.
-- Rolf Lovland

Imagine. Our planet floating silently in space. Around it, a white dove flies - forever circling. Every one hundred years, the dove's wing gently touches the face of Earth. The time it would take for the feathered wings to wear this planet down to nothing is eternity. -- Rolf Lovland

Within eternity time passes.
Within time there is change.
Soon the wing of the white dove will touch our world again.
The dawn of a new century.
Time for a new beginning.
Time for a new beginning.
At the break of Dawn of a century
Let voices ring
Rejoice and sing
Now is the time
Now is eternity
Love is our destiny
Dawn of a century
Imagine if you please just for a moment ... no matter where you be there is a secret garden in each of us
far away from the cold ...problems .. destruction ..
Its not hard to find.. For it is that special warm spot in your heart ..
The spot in your being soul that gives you the strength
To have faith and believe it will be alright

It doesn't come from one or a million and one .. It starts and comes from within and from faith humble view .. from a friendly Seabreeze .. good days bad days they come and go .. A heart is something we each have ... The key don't ever let another prevent you from giving and feeling and doing from your heart .. But do give and do for another always from your own heart ..It does make a difference !!

(warm smile from my heart ..)
