Heaven on earth [sound recording]
De Jong, Tania2015
Music CDs
Featuring Tania de Jong AM (soprano) with Joe Chindamo (composer and pianist) and guest artists including Zoe Black (violinist) and orchestra performing originals and some of the greatest music and songs of all-time. Heaven on Earth is a classical spiritual recording bringing together the angelic voice of soprano Tania de Jong with the virtuosic genius of pianist, composer and arranger Joe Chindamo. The album includes originals Heaven on Earth, Rainbow Shower and Peace Om shanti with compositions by Chindamo and lyrics by de Jong. There are also reinventions of some gorgeous standards including Summertime, Somewhere from Westside Story and La Vie en Rose and glorious classical reinventions of some of the greatest symphonies and concertos with inspirational lyrics by de Jong. The recording features the work of Beethoven, Mozart, Faure, Elgar and Dvorak though not always in the way you may expect. The songs are all about journeying beyond the here and now, opening your heart, finding your light, letting it shine, the importance of love and the reminder that there is only this present moment. I hope you find as much light, joy, love and peace in this music as I do.
