New Old Music Acquisitions

Furthering my music fix on the weekend, I managed to acquire some new old music that I have been searching for years.

I was introduced to these two ladies, Keiko Matsui and Suzanne Ciani during the early 90's when City Lite 88.3 was king of the smooth jazz/new age genre in the Philippines. I have cassette tapes of these two albums, Keiko Matsui's No Borders and Suzanne Ciani's Pianissimo (yes, CD's were beginning at the time, vinyl was on its way out and tapes were the standard then). These two initiated me to the new age/smooth jazz genre. And from there, I went to Enya, George Winston and Jim Chappell.

When the age of the iPod came, I was looking in vain for these two albums. I searched for about two years for these babies. I even bought Pianissimo's songbook, knowing I don't have enough chops on the piano to play any of its songs.

So when I re-acquired these two albums into my iPod, it was like coming home at the end of a long tiring day. Took me back almost 20 years, back when life was less complicated. It was a proverbial breath of fresh, but familiar air.

Now I could not get enough of these two ladies. Time to acquire their other music, or renew the new age music I grew up with in college and law school. Now to look for the last album to complete the homecoming, Jim Chappell's Nightsongs and Lullabies.

Side Prayers

Lord Jesus,
Teach me to be generous,
Teach me to serve You as You deserve
To give and not to count the cost,
To fight and not to heed the wounds,
To toil and not to seek for rest,
To labor and not to ask for reward,
except that of knowing
That I do Your Holy Will. Amen

May every word I speak be from Your Truth...
I ask come from Your Wisdom...
May every case I handle receive Your Guidance...
May every heart, every life I touch, feel Your Love.

And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying,
"Oh, that You would bless me indeed,
and enlarge my territory,
that Your Hand be with me,
that You would keep me from evil,
that I may not cause pain."

So God granted him what he requested.
