Music strengthens your inner-self, whether in times of joy or sorrow. Songs of Spirit features music from the documentary Song of Survival. This music is from the collection of vocal orchestral pieces which were sung by Dutch, English and American women in a Japanese prison camp during World War II. Among the pieces sung were, "Largo" from the New World Symphony by Dvorak, the "Pastoral Symphony" from Handel's Messiah and the steadfast "Captive's Hymn" written in 1942 by one of the music's arrangers Margaret Dryburgh. These pieces were first performed by the Peninsula Women's Chorus for the documentary "Song of Survival" and featured in the movie Paradise Road. Also featured is the song cycle "Indian Singing," based on poetry by Gail Tremblay, composed by Ron Jeffers. This piece was written specifically for the Peninsula Women's Chorus. This CD contains some very powerful music
