Forgotten Language of the Heart
A double CD 'essential Asher Quinn' type celebration of 21 years of recording from 2008... and the perfect compilation for his long time fans, as well as being a marvellous introduction to the extraordinary range of Asher's music for new listeners. There are love songs, piano pieces, instrumentals, pop-songs, folk-songs, covers and 'live' tracks... all with this extraordinarily intimate sense of spirituality that is Asher's trademark. The tracks are diverse and yet complimentary, delicate and yet dynamic, and reflect the range of new-age producers Asher has worked with too... The likes of Anthony Phillips (ex-Genesis), Phil Thornton, Med Goodall & James Asher. Not represented here are his two latest studio albums, 'Serpent in Paradise' and 'Falling Through Time.' Many of his most popular 'hits' are included from albums such as 'Open Secret', 'Mystic Heart', 'Concert of Angels', 'Love is the Only Prayer' and 'Music for Love'... such classics as 'Bow down', 'A solitary bird', 'Soldier of love', 'Gloria', 'Missa Greca', 'Prayer for the world' and 'Return to your soul'. At 150 minutes of music this compilation is extremely good value. The booklet is good value too, with gentle humour surfacing here and there as Asher describes the tracks he has selected, with the odd running gag or two.
