The THUNDERSONGS are inspired by yearning—sacred or profane—as expressed in the poetry of the very first songwriters of the western world, the men and women troubadours of the Middle Ages. These four compositions voice the wild passions of their desire, at times displaced in the messianic fervor of the Crusades. Rendered in whispers and roars, Kyrie’s songs seem to reverberate in the closed quarters of the castle-fortress or in the colorful frenzy of the crowd.
