HERE IS MY HEART

We had the privilege of submitting a song for inclusion on the CD FLY BY WIRE - THREADS II. This project grew out of Direct, the Vangelis online discussion group. Direct exists to discuss the music of Greek composer Vangelis.

The first THREADS project occurred a number of years ago. The musicians on the list decided that it would be appropriate to put together a limited-edition CD of original music dedicated to the Vangelis, who has been a shared influence. Fifty CDs were made and quickly snapped up.

The popularity of this project was the impetus for the creation of FLY BY WIRE - THREADS II. Other composers contributed music, and we felt compelled to submit one of Cathy's songs. However, the THREADS projects are instrumental, so Tomas had to arrange and record an instrumental version of this song on the kt-88.

The following link is to a RealAudio version of this song.

When this song was written in 1992, Cathy and Tomas had been married for 10 years, and she played it for him on their anniversary as a special gift (God has given her a great talent as a composer and she has been writing Christian Worship songs for many years). It's basically a love song! It has lyrics, but we felt that an instrumental version would be appropriate for Fly By Wire. The Celtic arrangement was Tomas'; he played with the phrasing a bit, so the lyrics may not match up as per the original composition.

"ARISE MY DARLING AND COME WITH ME
FAR BEYOND THE MOONLIGHT,
WHERE THERE ARE MEADOWS BRUSHED WITH DEW:
THE SECRETS OF MY SOUL

"SECRETS OF MY HOPES AND DREAMS
DEEPER THAN THE NIGHT.
FIELDS OF FLOWERS BENDED LOW
AWAITING THE DAWN TO UNFOLD
.

"HERE IS MY HEART,
ALL THAT I AM I GIVE TO YOU
.
P
LEASE TAKE MY HEART.
A
RISE MY DARLING, COME WITH ME,
AND YOU SHALL SEE THE TREASURE I GIVE YOU.
