With 9 weeks to go until the official release of "New Dress
Woven", this week's episode is an insight into the evolution of one of the
songs, "La Mia Ave Maria", through it's first exhibition in Ameno in June
2011, via Macugnaga in August, all the way to the recording process with the
"Muscia e Ludus" choir in Gallarate in October. This series endeavours to
give a visual idea of how the record was put together. How this new dress
was woven, if you will.
The subject matter is delicate,
and indeed provocatory. For a long time, and for reasons unknown, Lucia of
Fatima was kept silent by the Catholic church and ordered not to give any
interviews to any outside media. She was even absent from the ceremony in
2000 when her third secret was revealed.
From the violence and torture of the Artane Industrial school and the
Magdalene asylums to the horrible disclosures of the Ferns' report,
Ireland's catholic institutions hold a long and shameful history in their
dubious child caring methods, which is only compounded by it's ongoing
efforts to hide the truth.
I'm trying to draw a comparison between the two, and although I know some
people will take offence from the lyrical content, nothing is more
offensive, or indeed further from God, than the habitual and continued abuse
of a helpless child who was placed in your care.
