In the dark chill of January 2009 and 2010, the members of Spiritus met at the Banff Centre – amidst bright stars, moon-shadows and the quiet solitude of winter – and found warmth, camaraderie and, above all, music. During two winter weekends, Spiritus created this recording, intended to capture a mood of tranquility and inspiration. Encompassing musical and textual themes of love, light, solitude and devotion, we present Of Stars and Solitude.
