Karl Jenkins’ Cantilena.

Thanks to Joseph Susanka, who writes some of the best movie reviews, I discovered the Welsh composer Karl Jenkins.  I find some of his compositions lovely and soothing.

  1. High-quality site. Have added it to read later. Plenty of invaluable Thai land information here. I understand its a big thing to ask, but could I to copy a few of your article content to use in an ebook Im writing about Thailand? I will definitely provide a an endorsment to your webpage. Cheers Fritz.

  2. I agree, Joseph! I keep remembering the Enya song that has become so much associated with a 9/11 tribute, and I see some similarities, or influences there. It was a lovely discovery, thanks to seeing your tweet!

  3. This is a perfect example of why I find him fascinating, Barbara. Some of this is clearly “classically/historically” influenced. But there’s a definite “pop-ish” strain, as well. (A number of the current composers I’m tracking talk of being influenced by the past, but also of melding that past with their own childhood musical experiences. Jenkins certainly fits that bill.)

    (…oh, and thanks for the review compliment. You’re too kind!)
