Concerto of Deliverance

Seven movements for Instruments & Voices

Music by John Mills-Cockell

Inspired by words from Ayn Rand
"She sat listening to the music. It was a symphony of triumph.
The notes flowed up, they spoke of rising and they were the rising itself,
they were the essence and the form of upward motion, they seemed to
embody every human act and thought that had ascent as its motive.
It was a sunburst of sound, breaking out of hiding and spreading open.
It had the freedom of release and the tension of purpose.
It swept space clean, and left nothing but the joy of an unobstructed effort.
Only a faint echo within the sounds spoke of that from which the music had escaped,
but spoke in laughing astonishment at the discovery that
there was no ugliness or pain, and there never had had to be.
It was the song of an immense deliverance."

"The Concerto of Deliverance", Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged, 1957


"A musical adventure of discovery, remembrance, and arrival."

Two years in the making.
A full-length CD, 79 minutes - 15 tracks, of original music.
To be listened to and enjoyed, like a book is read, or a movie watched.
