From the recording Greensleeves
There are some melodies that just move you inexplicably, melodies that seem to transcend time and cultural barriers, that somehow unlock an innate musical sense that seems to be at the core of every human being. They keep their charm through many generations and times and seem to be timeless… On this album are some of my favourites – songs that I’ve wanted to record for a long time. Staying with the timeless theme, I’ve written two songs for Nelson Mandela, who’s influence and memory will sustain us far into the future. Another original song was inspired by the stillness and timelessness of the sun reflecting off the water in Cape Town.
