Today I’m playing the main song from the first of Karl Jenkins’ Adiemus albums, Songs of Sanctuary. It feels a bit strange to be playing a piece of music which is so intrinsically vocal on the piano so I’ve added a bit of voice/synth to the layering to make up for the lack of vocals! Adiemus was originally created by Welsh composer Jenkins for a Delta Airlines commercial and the project grew from there. The words don’t mean anything: Jenkins wanted the voice to be a true instrument without the distraction of lyrics.
