Stardust the new album by Kerani has so many great songs and each song has a story behind.
The inspiration for writing this song started with the following beautiful poem by the Japanese astronaut Koichi Wakata:
Afloat in the darkness before my eyes,
the watery planet bluely glows
How strong is my affection for that ancient home of ours,
how deep my gratitude for the gift of life
Tomorrow, I will dare the blue sky
and open up worlds unknown
for there we have our dreams
Messiah, composed in 1741 by George Frideric Handel, with a scriptural text compiled by Charles Jennens from the King James Bible, and from the version of the Psalms included with the Book of Common Prayer. It was first performed in Dublin on 13 April 1742 and received its London premiere nearly a year later. After an initially modest public reception, the oratorio gained in popularity, eventually becoming one of the best-known and most frequently performed choral works in Western music. (Wikipedia)
