This is the 11th piece in Music for All Souls, a collection of orchestral compositions inspired by Deborah Harkness’ All Souls Trilogy.
Thank you to the kind members of the All Souls Facebook group who assisted me in selecting a title and description to accompany the music. In Book of Life, while travelling to Gallowglass' home of his ancestors in Stornoway, Scotland, Diana notices Gallowglass' tattoos and begins to touch them gently. As she does, the scenes that inspired the images are recreated and as more of the tattoos and Gallowglass' skin is revealed, emotions become entwined with the images. Although the music is tender and loving, there is longing and sorrow underneath.
