In 2005, Michael released "My Secret Heart" on the Narada label (now part of UMG). The recording is his most-successful so far containing 10 tracks that New Age and Ambient reviewers now consider "classics". Led by the song "I Have Loved You For A Thousand Lifetimes", the album is still remarkably popular today. The track "Soliloquy" was recorded at the end of a LONG day where Michael had done the entire project in one day and then came back and did it again the next day. The melody of the track was featured on the song "Soliloquy" which came from his 1993 TV score "The Phantom of the Forest" which was also released in Narada. Michael found this unreleased version in the Summer of 2015 when his wife and him moved to Brooklyn. He mixed and edited the track and added his now famous ambient washes behind the lovely recording of the Yamaha 9-foot concert grand that he used in 2004. Enjoy the track and this wonderful "lost" piece from one of the most lovely New Age albums of all-time.
