A few words about “Adiemus: Songs of Sanctuary”
It is a choral work by the Welsh composer Karl Jenkins based on the European musical tradition where the vocal sound tends more towards ethnic music. The songs are a mix of African and Celtic melodies, with many elements from gospel and classical music. The percussion part gives the tracks an upbeat tribal rhythm.
The vocal parts are not written in the real language, despite the fact that some lyrics bear a resemblance to Latin. The words were written by the composer with the intention of the voices acting purely as an instrument. The word adiemus comes from the Latin word adeamus meaning “let us approach”

I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, music, good books, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socializing and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and, there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world. But I never lost my love for Crete for a minute. And nine years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
