FLYING CLOSER TO THE SUN flying closer to the sun back to where it all begun these golden dreams of desert sands i have long since left behind oh, oh, i will go lonely fires burning slow in a holy place below oh weary watchmen of the stars do you see all it is we hide? oh, oh i will go back to where it all begun leave the heat and dust behind leave my skin and bones to dry now i'm closer to the sun back to where it all begun..

Nominated for the 2011 SAMA's - "Best Instrumental Album", "Fireflies in The Rain" is Carol Thorns' debut solo cello album, composed and produced by Helmut Meijer between 2009 and 2010.

A collaboration that started with production work for "Sterling EQ" in London (2008), slowly progressed into a body of work that showcases Carol and Helmut's strength and passion for neoclassical-meets-electronic music.

A timeless offering, inspired by travels in North Africa and Israel.
