Bringers of the Dawn
“The Angel of Comfort must surely inhabit the synthesizer of Herb Ernst. Herb’s music is breathtaking in its shimmering radiance, eternal in its celestial scope, and healing in its heartwarming connections. A salve straight from Heaven.”
-- Carol Wright, Music Reviewer, NAPRA REVIEW
Herb Ernst (creator of the classic Dreamflight Trilogy) again shares his intimate, intuitive Comfort Music inspired from his inner journeying. He explains:
The morning dawn has symbolized the awakening of higher awareness, a new beginning, the overcoming of darkness and fear and entering into light, love and hope – a spiritual new day.
Bringers of the Dawn refers to those angelic, spiritual beings who offer us comfort and support to help us enter that new day. Some people call these beings angels (referring to beings of high spiritual consciousness, or messengers or thoughts from God). Personally, I believe that we are all “angelic” in our innermost nature and when we express love, comfort and support for each other (and ourselves) we, too, are angels bringing a new dawn to our planet.
The music on this album ranges from complex, passionate rhapsodies to childlike serene lullabies. The inspiration for this album was to create music of such an angelic, rapturous nature that the listener could resonate with it at one’s deepest soul level, thereby deriving a restorative sense of inner peace and comfort (i.e., a “spiritual lullaby”) from the experience. (Although “lullaby” usually refers to music used to quiet children, lullabies aren’t just for children anymore, but also for the Inner Child in us all.)
In this music, I endeavored to express, through a multitude of synthesized textures and classic instrumentation, a feeling of angelic rapture that would carry the listener to the deepest heart levels where a sense of inner peace and comfort would, in turn, bring the dawn of spiritual light to restore the soul.
