Synopsis

Album Description
On One Heart, One Mind, her most recent album, Elisabeth has collected and composed a stunning pageant of material. SING OUT declared that "One Heart, One Mind seduces the listener with well-crafted songs in sensuous arrangements."The album includes such diverse elements as, Elisabeth's romantic "Early Rose and Gray," Ray Davies' "Waterloo Sunset," poet Robert Frost's "A Minor Bird,"set to von Trapp's melody, and a new arrangement of John Newman's "Lead Kindly Light." Imbued with Elisabeth's rich soprano voice and elegant arrangements of piano, cello and guitar, the songs become timeless ballads that reveal her penchant for beautiful melancholy. According to music magazine VOX, "Angelic, enchanting, magical are the words that come to mind as ... One Heart, One Mind begins to play."

Angel voice tells the story
11/09/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Of the eleven selections on her second cd, von Trapp has written the lyrics and music to six and the music to an additional two. Her music is honest and personal, sweet and delicate, yet powerful and dramatic. Elisabeth sings from the heart with clarity and a sense of purpose. Kaiulani recounts the sad tale of the Hawaiian princess; Childhood Home describes in poignant lyrics her parents' hard work. In Twin Angels, a delightful melody without words, Elisabeth hums the voices she felt while inside the Cathedral in Salzburg, Austria, with her grandmother. The von Trapp family home in Vermont provides the title to Cor Unum (One Heart). Maria and Georg von Trapp would be proud of the music and story created and performed by their granddaughter. Listeners will want to pay close attention to every inspiring word as they sit and enjoy von Trapp's angelic voice and message."
One of my favorites

"I listened to this CD repeatedly when I first bought it, and, after about six months, I still listen to it regularly--it has worn very well on my ears. All of the songs are fresh, peaceful and well sung. As one with strong theological and artistic sensibilities, I feel that von Trapp reset Newman's "Lead Kindly Light" spledidly. To boot, I have played this recording for numerous friends, all of whom, in their diverse tastes, gave rave reviews. This CD is a must buy."
One of my favorite albums!

"For a few months, this have been one of my favorite albums.(Some of them are like this: The Soundtrack of "The Sound of Music," Four last songs by Schwalzkopf, Le nozze di Figaro by Abbado and so on.) It's very hard for me to chose my favorite song among these songs but I had to do so, I guess I would pick "KAIULANI." Of course, other songs are very wonderful. One of my aquaitances said to me, "I prefer Ms. Elisabeth von Trapp to Charolotte Church, don't you think so?" I agreed with it.I recommend it highly! A must buy! I think you won't regret to buy it!"
