Hi all, agree with you, Mr. I am desperately searching the sheet music for this piece, too. Is this available for sale somewhere?
Hi , I recently purchased an album called Deep Purple and freinds which includes a live version of pictured within. Can anyone tell me which album it is on and who are the vocalists? Hi Steve This would most likely be from the 30th anniversary performances of the Concerto at Royal Albert Hall in Miller Anderson sings and you can find the entire show on this album: This is truly one of the finest albums I have ever had the pleasure to hear.
It makes me happy, yet tugs at my heart; it makes me smile, yet tears runs down my face; it makes me want to explore the earth and travel, yet I feel the need to hold those closest to me, stay near and never let them go. Isnt it about time we saw Sir Jon Lord. If the big lipped singer from the most overated band on earth can get a knighthood for shagging lots of women and recording 3 decent songs in 40 years then surely Jons body of work deserves it.
I only want to be able to play Pictured Within and Kith and Kin on the the keyboard! Hey my son has just gone and said he can do it……. I too am in love with Wait A While, and have spent the entire evening looking on line for the sheet music. Is it available? Please tell me yes and how I can get it. Thanks for such a special song for an emotional time of life. I would be great to know where you can purchase song books resp. Pictured Within and Wait a While both give me goosiebumps. Get some gigs in UK please Jon — you promised!!!!

Lord was going for great sorrow in the mood here, and he certainly achieved that.
An appropriate choice for such a poignant album. It was a personal time and range of emotions that Lord chose to share with his fans and friends, and should be respected on its merits. If taken in that context I think most of his fans will be glad to have experienced it. Having released four solo albums between and , Jon Lord waited a further 17 years before venturing back into his solo career.
During the intervening period the classic Deep Purple reformed twice and then fell apart completely; Lord however kept the faith throughout. After the general disappointment with his release "before I forget", hopes were high that he would rediscover the inspiration which had been apparent on his three albums from the s. These are "The valley" tracks 1 2 and 3 , "Blue sky dreams" tracks 4,5 and 6 "Of heroes and heroines" tracks 7,8 an 9 and "Beneath a higher heaven" tracks 10, 11 and Brown is given a couple of lyric writing credits too, the only person other than Lord to receive such a credit.
Jon had been working on the music for some time before recording commenced, the loss of his mother in having a clear influence on the mood of the album. Significantly, he signed with the Virgin Classics label for its release.
The virtually inaudible opening bars of "Sunrise" imperceptibly increase in volume until a cello picks out a theme and Jon plays his introductory notes on piano. And so we are quickly reassured that this is to be an album of considered beauty with strong symphonic leanings. As at that performance, Miller Anderson delivers an impassioned vocal to this beautiful song. The track remains downbeat, but has a more contemporary feel overall.
Here the strings remain but become the accompaniment to the lead piano and flute played by the aforementioned Van Leer. Solo violin forms the main part of this emotionally charged piece. The familiarity may simply be that it also featured on the "Royal Albert Hall" album also sung there by Sam Brown. The longest track on the album, "Crystal spa", runs to well over 14 minutes.
It opens as a sort of requiem with choral vocals and orchestration, the strings holding the notes poignantly as Lord adds colour on piano. The melody reminds me of Scottish airs and long evenings in the remote Highlands.
It is probably fair to say that you need to be in the right mood to listen to and appreciate this album. It is an album for relaxation, for reflection, and as Jon himself was doing, for remembering those who are no longer with us.
While the music remains impassioned but gentle throughout, this is not a morbid affair. It is quite feasible to enjoy the music while indulging in personal thoughts and memories. You must be a forum member to post a review, please register here if you are not.
