vive la france !
thanks a lot Duddy, I love much this song too !
the voice is less dark as usual, the orchestra lighter too , the intro is pure as lace , all the song is pure lace and velvet.
I think the first chock of classical music is gone for me, I get more and more used to classical arrangements, I now can appreciate better the song by itself.
And for my ears, all is knew as I don't know the original song

Geoffrey Oryema has also recorded a great version of this song - check out his excellent 2001 album "Spirit".

Thanks a lot Duddy!
I loved immediately the extract the first time i heard it on the podcast. The full version is very powerful. The beginning of the track reminds me the violin from Shankar who contributed to many Peter Gabriel songs.
I love the double voice at around 22:50 that creates a kind of growing tension. EXCELLENT

After several listenings, i'm totally in love with this song. It's SO nice. It will be one of my favorites on SMB, that's sure. There's something spiritual that i can't explain.

I was reminded a little of San Jacinto - in terms of its atmosphere.
