Hi Vienna! Your music, covers and original, new and old, makes me think and feel in the way I long for music to do. Thank you for following your muse and sharing your gift. And for answering questions here! What a treat! I would really like to know about the Latin in St. Stephen's Cross . The contra...

definitely worth a sit down with a cup of tea one night. I would agree! I spent a couple of hours there and, wow! Its wonderful to read the insights and conversational stuff in there. Delicious. It seems there is quite a bit of exploring to do here... I'll just have to do it gradually. Thanks for t...

Like I said, just thinkin' - please don't take it personally!
Probably talking more about myself than anything.

There's a lot of upbeat music on this album, but this one seems to be the most hopeful of the upbeat ones... makes me want to dance!

mmm. If I found out a song was a veiled ...um, tribute? with many potential meanings, but inspired by John F. Kennedy, I think it might give me a sense of history. Things that mark the passage of time, in a way, carry with them a sense of timelessness. I know I undervalue politics, but there is stil...

The way Obama is making history I don't think you have to worry about it having meaning in 2017... or 2109. People will be celebrating for a long time, I hope. Celebrating Diversity, celebrating unity through our differences. But meanings do change over time, for whoever takes the time to absorb and...

Wow! Thank you for your heartfelt response, Fred. Fascinating info about Sid Arthur - hope to hear more about it or hear it in the future. I definitely feel like I'm lucky to be a musician too - there is nothing like Music... and I'm blessed to be in a field that utilizes music to work with people, ...

Like a warning of what could be lost If this were the last... what would these eyes see, how could I carry on, if I were that kind of grateful, what would I try to say? I wonder, what other connections do you all hear between songs? Lol - I didn't spend too long in the research dept., no worries. I...

what I can make out... only the last word or part of a word is clear enough for me to think it is Latin. Several words end in "amus" - which to me, as a vocalist, makes me think, Oooh, Latin! But I could be wrong. The harmonies are rich and wide scoping... I almost don't want to know what ...

Sorry about my mistake there!!! Stray Italian Greyhound struck me as a metaphor from the beginning, but I didn't feel like it was what most might consider the "obvious" metaphor - a relationship song, where one is too stubborn to be in a relationship and just when they are ready to conside...

This thread is definitely interesting to me... Do you mean to say that Vienna doesn't care for this particular song of hers too much? Is that why she rarely plays in her performances? This song is a solace for me. Hearing it, even only in my head, can be like coming home. After having VT introduced ...

Any idea what the latin is between the second and third verses?
mmm ~smiles~ Or what the significance may be.....

This piece is cinematic, a landscape in itself.

I only just discovered this forum... Shame on me too!! What a great community you all have here! I'm glad to have found you. I guess I was so intrigued by the depth in Vienna's official webpage that I never went beyond it, though so much of her music inspires me to go beyond my comfort zones, lookin...

The Last Snowfall

Is there a way to hear the arrangement released in the holiday pack that was released? This song is a treasure and I would love to hear it. I just discovered this forum - what a neat community! Vienna Teng is one of the most inspirational influences in discovering my own music child. She just has a ...
