Meanwhile itâ€™s three months ago since I posted â€žTo Helenâ€œ and as you surely remember I promised, that Adam Malin would arrange this song and you would get a second version.
Finally I proudly present the result. Adam is the keyboard-player of a very fine progressive rock band called â€žXNAâ€œ. Lovers of the classic era of Prog a la early Genesis and Yes should not hesitate to visit their homepage at
For those who missed the first version
Adam did a great job with the arrangement. He has played all keyboard-parts live following my basic piano-part and ended up with around fourty stems, so it was a real challenge for me to mix the track. At the end â€žTo Helenâ€œ turned to orchestral with nice additions of percussion, strings and harpsichord.
Adam: Arrangement, bass, harpsichord, strings, percussion, brass, special effects

To the glory that was Greece,Â Â Â Â Â Â â€¨Â Â Â

Lo! in yon brilliant window-niche â€¨Â Â Â
How statue-like I see thee stand, â€¨
The agate lamp within thy hand! â€¨Â Â Â
Ah, Psyche, from the regions which â€¨Â Â Â
