The eighth, last track from the “magnum opus” of Lucette Bourdin – the “Horse Heaven” album, her last and perhaps most significant composition. For the highest (MP3 320 kbps) quality please refer to the Archive section.
From a review by Greg Moorcroft:
” The closer, Mystic Horse, is altogether unlike anything else on the album: percussive echoes in deep space; a slow, primitive, ritual drumbeat; bits of wooden flute, triangle, claves – all of this fades out to a rising and falling electric piano-like line, but the drumbeat has the last word. The ritual remains, taking us out but bringing us back into the body, leaving us so much richer for the journey.
Horse Heaven is mystic, ineffable, introspective and god-seeking – exploring and celebrating both external and internal infinities, and a quest for their meeting place. Imagine church music for everyone, without any sectarian baggage, with no need for division or fear – just sharing the wonder of this life eternal. That’s how I would sum up this essential release, from an artist whose music should be heard by all.”
