Jim Chambers has reviewed “Forgotten Promises” single

Remembering the forgotten promises

by: Jim Chambers

Date: January 10, 2013

From Silentaria: “Rixa White had composed a draft version of the ‘Forgotten Promises’ melody in 1992. After 20 years, on December 2012, being emotionally touched by tragedies like the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, he completed the initial melody and released it as a single track in honoring Sandy Hook Elementary School victims.”

However the song came into being, it was worth waiting for. It’s not the somber funeral dirge you might expect in the aftermath of such a tragedy of young lives suddenly taken away. Instead it’s a more upbeat melody remembering and honoring the children of Sandy Hook Elementary, a celebration of their lives, in my interpretation.

Unlike the ethereal synthesized music of Rixa White in more recent compositions, “Forgotten Promises” has a more conventional sound of piano and strings, but it’s just as mesmerizing.
