"I love the way instrumental music has the ability to speak of deep things from the heart, which otherwise may be hard to express through words."
This album is a blend of improvised and arranged music, with instrumental consisting of piano, baroque cello, acoustic guitar and percussion. Solveig draws on her background in classical music as well as experiencing and using improvisation as a form of prayer which goes deeper than words.
"I believe that hidden in every season we go through in life there are treasures to be found. Gifts. Also during those times where there seems to be very few blessings in sight, life seems to be against us, lights grown dim. However, many gems are being found under pressure, deep down in the dark.
"And who knows, whatever season you're in, you might even hear s quiet voice somewhere in the music, speaking only to you."
Solveig Fylling Nygaard is originally from Norway but now lives in Watford in the UK with husband, Sveinumg. She is a craft worker and explains "I find much inpiration in the richness and depth of middle eastern volours and patterns and in the beauty of nature."
Part of the profit from the CD will go to support The Urban Retreat and The Upper Room, two spaces in the middle of Watford set aside for local people to meet with God, both through personal prayer time and praying and worshipping together.
