Dreams - Early Music CD from Bernadette Bevans (composer for the films of Mary's Dowry Productions)

A Complete Instrumental Fusion Audio CD.
The album 'Dreams' is a blend of unique and contrasting instruments, from solo piano, folk guitar and classical flute, to Gothic Choir and Strings. Each piece takes you into a dream world, on a journey with their haunting melodies and characters. As you enter the world of each original title, you will find yourself absorbed, whether it is through the wild stirring Tango Accordian of 'Grizzled Skipper' that transports you to a smugglers Tavern, or the sweet enchanting classical flute of 'Angel Shades' that whisks you above the clouds. Your soul will be moved and engulfed in the magic of the sounds.

Bernadette Bevans has been writing music since the age of fourteen. 
Specialising in writing music as underscore to film and narrative,
Bernadette has been compiling original albums for many years. Many
of these include Ancient English fusion music such as the early albums
Lands, Journeys, Dreams and many more. Recently the Holy Spirit Series
was inspired as a much more reflective and background type style
and has been enjoyed by many for meditation and for chilling out on the
 train to work. The Calm Your Spirit with Music Series is a long
awaited series making the music soundtracks from many of the Mary’s
Dowry Productions films available on complete and enhanced CD.

Length and Format:

DREAMS is available worldwide on Audio CD and is 29 minutes in length.

About This Series:

This audio CD is Volume 3 in the Series of Music Albums "Reflective Ancient English Fusion Music".  This is the earliest series of music written by Bernadette, begun in the late 1990s on simple piano and evolving to Clavinova and transforming what began with piano solo to a blending of unique instrumental styles.  This particular album is the first album composed entirely on Clavinova and takes on an appealing variety of instruments and moods.  As with all Bernadette's music the foundation is reflective, mystical and atmospheric but with a love of Olde English style a new and original sound was gradually developed over the years by fusing the reflective base with ancient and unexpected instruments.  Dreams contains both calming meditative tracks with some lighter tunes too.  Perfect for thought-provoking moods, chilling out or listening to in the background.
