Taken from the album:
The idea of Secret Garden is one that everyone can relate to. We all have landscapes inside us, secret rooms where feelings and impressions grow as a little garden. Some talk about it, write poems or letters, paint, or even take a walk to reflect over life. We all have our own way. But what is common to us, is a strong emotional feeling that is an essential part of our nature. My way of dealing with this is through music, and everything I write comes from my secret garden. This simple piece had no other name than "Pianopiece in C minor" for many years. But when the Secret Garden project evolved, I felt this piece could express the essence of my ideas--the simple melody straight from the heart, expressed through Fionnuala's soulful, vulnerable and naked violin playing.
