cd Seeds Of Hope And Love David Clifton


From cathedral choirboy to guitarist touring the world with some of the UK's finest artists, this (and similar) sacred music projects have been recorded between tours and session work. They are a labour of love, re-interpreting Scriptural texts with a fresh approach for the present day.
"Most of the great writers and composers throughout history, from poets to the greats, such as Handel, Vivaldi, Brahms, Tavener, the great Delta Blues artists, and many others, were equally at home writing for purely sacred genres, as well as within a wider entertainment repertoire. The more recent divisions of 'sacred' and 'secular', particularly in the arts, is something of a mystery to me. All art, at its best, draws attention to beauty, whether physical or Spiritual. For me there have never been more beautiful words spoken about our human condition, how to relate to each other, how to navigate the pitfalls of our earthly journey, and how to live with wisdom, than by an itinerant revolutionary teacher born to a homeless refugee family in Bethlehem."
From a July 2015 Interview. David Clifton in conversation with The Foundling House.
