Weitere Informationen vom Distributor:
Maurice Horne is a composer and keyboard performer who has published numerous CDs in recent years. His latest release in 2005 is "Piano Dreams." Create your own dreams with this masterful exposition of strings and piano. Each song begins with full synth strings and then they become the background for beautiful piano ballads. A perfect background music CD for your quiet times.
He has published 8 CDs in the last four years. Five of them are on https://www.tradebit.com They are also available for digital download from numerous internet sites such as iTunes, MusicMatch and Rhapsody under CD Baby’s digital distribution.
Maurice’s release in 2004 is "The Music of Angels: 20 Traditional Hymns." An instrumental collection of hymns such as these is not available in stores. This is precisely why he released this CD because he could not find any such CDs to purchase in the stores--including those specializing in religious music.
It is hoped that these hymns will meet special spiritual needs of those interested in traditional hymns. Psalm 103 is listed on the front cover to suggest his appreciation of the genesis of this album.
This Album contains 20 well-known and loved "old" hymns from the 18th, 19th and 20th Century. It actually contains 21 hymns. Maurice has included one of his own contemporary hymn compositions on Track 20 as "One for the twenty-first century." But he ’writes them like they used to.’ While the music is somewhat contemporary, the words (not on this album) are just like the traditional hymns in style and content.
The inspiration for this collection came from his youthful years listening to his Mother and Grandmother singing these old hymns...not only in Church but around the house. From these fond memories he has compiled a collection of hymns that you will discover yourself singing along with as you play the CD.
On virtually all tracks Maurice performs on piano with strings and meditative, warm synthesizer backgrounds. Track 21 contains an expansive pipe organ arrangement of "A Mighty Fortress is Our God."
A classically trained musician with both degrees in music and law, Maurice devotes his evenings and weekends to composing, recording, and publishing ethereal synthesizer and piano music. He records in his home recording studio.
Maurice holds copyrights on hundreds of unpublished songs.
Other CD releases from 2002 are: "Tranquility" and "Pianoscapes." Also: "Soundscapes" (2001) on synthesizers; "Greatest Hits" (2001) on grand piano; "Loves’ Communion" (digitally remastered 2001) on piano; and "Sweet Contemplations" (digitally remastered 2001) on electronic keyboards.
"Tranquility" is comprised of 19 tracks of orchestral strings and other multi-timbral synthesizer sounds and pianos. The CD is exactly 60 minutes of original music.
This is the ultimate ’relaxation’ CD. It begins very quietly and then builds. Start at Track 9 for a much more mellow continuation to the end of the CD.
The music is ethereal and causes one to feel serene as if traveling in free-floating outer space. It is definitely meditative and relaxing music for driving or as a warm, supportive background for whatever you may be doing.
"Pianoscapes" has 15 tracks with different digital pianos blended with lush synthesizer sounds. Some tracks are piano renditions similar to Shubert’s Impromptus.
In fact, impromptus may be the most accurate genre description of his music.
"Soundscapes" has 12 tracks for ’space oriented’ music in the genre of Gustav Holst’ "The Planets." There is somewhat more experimentation in the digital sounds with some much like the human voice--and even a 12-string digital guitar. Kyrios is the surprise ending.
The music of Maurice Horne is music you haven’t heard--and music you won’t forget.
