Tears in Heaven

Music by Eric Clapton

Originally Performed by Eric Clapton

"Tears in Heaven" is a song by Eric Clapton and Will Jennings, from the 1991 Rush film soundtrack. The song was written about the pain and loss Clapton felt following the death of his four-year-old son, Conor. In an interview with Sue Lawley in 1992, Clapton said of the song "There is a song that Iíve written for a movie, but in actual fact it was in the back of my head but it didnít really have a reason for being until I was scoring this movie which I did a little while ago and then it sort of had a reason to be. And it is a little ambiguous because it could be taken to be about Conor but it also is meant to be part of the film." Conor fell from a window of a 53rd-floor New York apartment building owned by his mother's friend on March 20, 1991. Clapton arrived at the apartment shortly after the accident.

Die Singphoniker : Fragile: A Requiem for Male Voices  : 00  1 CD : 817.2

Die Singphoniker : Fragile: A Requiem for Male Voices

The German men's vocal sextet Die Singphoniker was established in the early '80s and has made it its mission to take on a promiscuous variety of music, including plainsong, the repertoires of music for men's voices of the Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and Modern eras, as well as folk song and American popular song. In this album the group brings its commitment to diversity to new level. Taking Pierre de la Rue's Requiem, Missa pro fidelibus defunctis (ca. 1506) as its central work, the group intersperses its seven movements with a wild variety of other pieces, including the spiritual Deep River; a movement from Weill's Berliner Requiem; German folk songs; contemporary pieces by Einojuhani Rautavaara, Knut Nystedt, and Hans Schanderl; and arrangements of songs by Sting and Eric Clapton. Even as a recital, this assortment would make for a pretty eccentric mix, but the group takes the further provocative step of describing the album as a unified work: Fragile: A Requiem for Male Voices. Much space in the program notes is given over to debating the pros and cons of the propriety of making such a designation, but the prevailing argument is that the human voice provides the organic unifying element that does in fact allow the diverse pieces to be heard as parts of a larger whole. Listeners will certainly have a variety of opinions on the success of the enterprise, but for those who can approach it as the performers intended it, as a tool for contemplation rather than the subject of analytical dissection, the album has an intuitively meaningful flow. Die Singphoniker may not have quite the level of polish or the velvety blend of other a cappella groups like Chanticleer or the King's Singers, but it is still an excellent ensemble that delivers nuanced and spirited performances. The singing in the demanding de la Rue Requiem is especially beautiful and the group provides the rhythmic punchiness that really brings it to life. The five songs in English may be problematic for English speakers because of the accents of the singers, particularly noticeable in the Sting and Clapton and in Deep River. Oehms' sound is terrific: clean, detailed, warm, and very present

Songlist: Mein junges Leben hat ein End, Fragile, Missa pro fidelibus defunctis, Introitus, Zu Potsdam unter den Eichen, Missa pro fidelibus defunctis, Kyrie, La mort des pauvres (Serenade to Death), Tractus, Deep River, Offertorium, Whispers of Heavenly Death, Sanctus, Peace I Leave With You, Agnus Dei, Communio, Tears In Heaven, Der Mond ist aufgegangen

Reunion : Street Corner Singers

Three-time UGHA winners Reunion - no other group has had that distinction - have been singing together in various incarnations since the 1960's. They also competed in and won the 'Acappella Showdown' in 1990 and 1991. This experience has resulted in a smooth fluid sound and crisp delivery; they avoid harshness. Their strong suit is the roundness and fullness of their tone. Their set list comprises the contemporary - Otis Redding's 'Drift Away' or Van Morrison's 'Brown Eyed Girl' - and the classic: the plaintive 'I Believe' and uptempo 'Where Are You Tonight?'

Songlist: Where Are You Tonight?, Wonderful Tonight, Lean On Me, I Believe, Heart of Saturday Night, At This Moment, Cool Change, That's My Desire, Drift Away, What's Your Name?, Brown Eyed Girl, Tears In Heaven, The Boys Are Back In Town, The Sun, Bring Me Li'l Water Silvy, It's Growing, Buffalo Soldier, Lookin' For An Echo
