"Chava's song", composed by Michael Hedges, was originally recorded & performed as a duet on harp guitar and piano for Michael's album "Taproot".
Jeff Titus arranged Michael's haunting tune for solo harp guitar and recorded it as part of his debut solo album "Wood Dragon" with permission from Naked Ear Music (BMI).
"Silent Return" follows "Chava's Song" on Jeff's album and is simply an extension of the emotional connection to Michael's composition.
The Carlson "Oracle" Harp Sympitar was built for Jeff in 2001 by the amazing luthier Fred Carlson. More on Fred's instruments may be found at http://beyondthetrees.com This 24-string instrument is dedicated to the memory of Michael Hedges and the spiral motif logo is used by permission of the Michael Hedges Estate.
I hope you all enjoy this simple in-home performance. More to come very soon... including some footage from my live shows with Michael Manring! -Jeff
