Doug Jamieson, composer
I honour your gods
I drink at your well
I bring an undefended heart to our meeting place
I have no cherished outcome
I will not negotiate by withholding
I am not subject to disappointment
~ anonymous Celtic vow
This CD of five love songs was first recorded in Eden Mills, Ontario in January 2004. All five songs were partially re-recorded and re-mastered in 2005 and are included on Fair Mona and Country Matters. Undefended Heart is designed as a gift - a celebration of love - for someone for whom your heart has no defense.
The attractive cover art is by Eden Mills artist Richard Pilon. Inside is a Celtic vow, with space for you to write a dedication if you wish to give it as a gift. For buyer beware samples, there are excerpts below in both lo-fi and hi-fi for slow and fast Internet connections respectively.
The cost for the CD is $12 (plus shipping).

the most intellectual and artistic song of the collection in that the entire
Odyssey of Homer has been distilled into a much more pithy and cogent work
of only 3 minutes. The composer accomplishes this amazing feat by cleverly
retelling the entire story from the viewpoint of Penelope and leaving out
all that other junk.
