  8. 8. Songs from a Secret Garden (1996)Somewhere within us all there is a secret garden. A garden in which we can seekrefuge when times are rough, or retire to in joy or contemplation. For years I havevisited my own secret garden in search of organic harmony and melody. The songson this CD are some of what Ive found.In 1994, I met an artist who through the soulful simplicity of her instrument gave mysongs a voice. She is the famed Irish violinist Fionnuala Sherry. Together we havetended the secret garden - and the crop is here for your picking. It is my sincere wishthat by uncovering some of our secrets, you will pay a visit to your own garden.(Rolf Lovland) “Song from a Secret Garden”
  9. 9. White stones (1997)Once upon a time, two children overheard their parents plan to abandon them in a forest,as they could not afford to feed them. But the children cleverly gathered small whitestones, and on their journey into the forest, they secretly dropped them onto the ground.At nightfall, left alone, the moon illuminated the white stones, and the reflection becametheir guiding light. So the fairytale about Hansel and Gretel goes. Maybe each song on thisalbum can be compared to a white stone? Listen and let them lead you into your ownsecret garden.

  12. 12. Once in a Red Moon (2002)Secret Gardens musical ideas are built on organic melodies telling their own stories,simplicity and straight from the heart performances.With our new album "once in a red moon" we wanted to retain these basic elements, butalso explore new areas in our musical universe, and challenge our own creative thoughts.During this process we also discovered that this development was a circle - like an orbit inour creative universe taking us around to the intimacy and emotions of where SecretGarden once originated.
  13. 13. Earth songs (2005)If we listen to our hearts, we can hear the earth silently singing.It is the promise of the past, it is the yield of new life, it is the songs of the earth.They were always there, awakened by our heartbeats and nourished by our tears, theeternal songs that can lift our spirits to reach for something higher than us. Fionnuala Sherry & Rolf Lovland
  14. 14. Inside I am Singing (2007)Inside I’m singing is a project that started off as a 10 year anniversary idea. We wantedto reverse the process, take some of our own favorite melodies, have lyrics written tothem, arrange them in our own style, and then invite some of the greatest singers togive their voice and performance to our music.Finding the right artists to each song has been a special joy in this project. We areproud to present an amazing circle of artists who have all given their voice and heartand very generously have shred their utmost performance. “Song for a new Beginning”

  17. 17. If I held in my hand Every grain of sand Since time first began to me Still I could never count Measure the amount Of all the things you are to me If I could paint the sky Hang it up to dry I would want the sky to be Oh, such a grand design An everlasting sign The things Of all the things you are to meyou are to me Chorus: You are the sun that comes on summer winds You are the falling year that autumn brings You are the wonder and the mystery In everything I see, the things you are to me Sometimes I wake at night And suddenly takes fright You’re my vaguest fantasy But then you reach for me And once again I see All the things you are to me Chorus: You are the sun that comes on summer winds ……
  18. 18. When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary; When troubles come and my heart burdened be; Then, I am still and wait here in the silence, Until you come and sit awhile with me. You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains; You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas; I am strong, when I am on your shoulders; You raise me up To more than I can be. You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains; You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;You raise me up I am strong, when I am on your shoulders; You raise me up To more than I can be. Chorus: You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains; You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas; I am strong, when I am on your shoulders; You raise me up To more than I can be. You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains; You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas; I am strong, when I am on your shoulders; You raise me up To more than I can be. You raise me up To more than I can be.
