Whilst this, essentially orchestral, suite is designed to he heard in its entirety, End Of Innocence includes the moving lament Sweetest Dreams written and sung by Kaye’s wife Dani Torchia, providing a moment of sensitive reflection following the fall of the towers. The song highlights the sadness, pain and anguish of those left behind, living with the memory of loved-ones lost. Watch the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OijeaQP9O_g
