Reading your story and seeing how you are
happy with the man youl love, I keep wondering:
my marriage is over (it was not a good marriage
after all). I am 45 years old, I used to be
pretty, but now I am alone since the divorce
(2001), and every man who I met those years
were younger then me and only interesting
in my money ( and I am not rich, at all).
I always think, can be true that I will not
find the real love?
I am not that old. I feel you are a wise and
enlighted creature, please, answer this e-mail,
sending your light and tenderness care to
me, and I will be sure that something wonderful
is going to happen in my life. I still have
hope to find a sincere man to love and be
loved. Anyway, to be happy as you are. For
now, only to watch the DVD "CASTLE AND
DREAMS", I keep on dreaming with a love
like you and Richie have for each other. Will
I find my happiness?
God Bless you dear Candice, I think of you
as a person of my own family.
Love and hope,
If you were not in a good marriage then it
is a good thing that you are not in it anymore.
Of course it hurts for a long while when you
have to start again. But the wonderful thing
is that you are starting again instead of
wasting more time on someone who didn't deserve
you. It doesn't matter what age you are or
if you fit into what this shallow, plastic,
superficial world deems as "pretty".
"Pretty" defies definition. It could
be the sparkle in your eyes, the way you toss
your hair or your laughter. ""Pretty"
comes from the heart, not the outside. And
it seems to me that you already have that...Your
words are of one who is sensitive, searching
and caring. That is more beautiful and intriguing
than 1,000 women who are in magazines who
look like cardboard cut outs of everyone else
in those same magazines. "Pretty"
os what you have to offer the world, what
you have to offer life and what you will be
offering in a new relationship...when you
Sometimes, I think, the soul knows when the
time is right much more than the hearts longing
or the mind's desire. When you feel it deep
from with in about a person they will pesent
themselves to you and the time will be perfectly
right for you. But right now you are still
healing. Take this valuable time to know yourself,
your new beginnings and the start of a new
adventure. Take road trips with friends, start
a hobby, dance beneath the moonlight. Most
of all- do what makes your heart sing. And
laugh...the greatest healer. Be only around
people that make you feel good. And when you
are alone, learn...about what is around you...about
what is within you. I am sorry that you went
through such a hard time and had such a bad
experience, but I am so proud of you that
you are strong enough to walk away. That inner
strength is a beautiful gift. It is always
there for you...whether you feel it at the
moment or not. Its just a matter of tapping
You are not old, and you know what? Even if
your years were many...it still doesn't make
you old. I have met 20 year olds that are
60! And 80 year olds that are 16. It really
does come from within. In my realm I choose
not to believe in age... you can do the same.
Why should we be dictated to by numbers? What
is "accepted" , what we should think,
wear , drive? No thank you...I would rather
dictate to myself...not by boundaries set
by outside influences. Because at the end
of the day, it doesnt matter what "they
" think. But it matters all the world
what YOU think.
As far as Ritchie and myself, I find that
a relationship is like a garden. It can be
so beautiful and make you feel so alive, but
it is also work. If you don't weed the garden,
there are outside influences that will strangle
your flowers! So, we make sure that doesnt
And, dear Lidia, I am not enlightened, just
a woman as you are. But as women we have intuition,
deep spiritual powers, we are naturally nurturing
creatures at one with the earth and the moon.
Feel that magical energy and rest well knowing
that when you are ready your love will appear
to you. But also live every moment happy to
be alive! Breathe in the fresh air! Listen
to the birds and make each moment your own
until your love does come. That way no precious
time is wasted on sadness.
And know that I am thinking of you...
Much love and light always,
Having heard the mini Christmas
CD accompanying Beyond the Sunset, I wondered
if you had ever thought of producing an
album with all the old carols and songs
from centuries back, in true medieval style.
I just love your arrangement of O Come,
O come Emmanuel (which is a great favourite
advent hymn of mine), and We Three Kings,
and thought that to have an entire album
of material like that would really convey
the Christmas spirit of old.
I do so enjoy your music
and look forward to seeing you on your next
European tour. Lots of love to you and the
rest of the band and I hope you all have
a very happy Christmas and New Year.
Funny you should mention that. We are planning
on recording one this year for release at
the end of 2006. We have had such a great
reception to the 3 songs that we did record,
including Christmas Eve entering at #38
on the adult contemporary Billboard charts
for December 28th, 2005, that we have decided
it is time to make a complete Holiday album.
As the information about the songs and release
date becomes clearer, I'll let you all know.
Thanks for you letter.
Love and light and Happy 2006!
I am an American living
in Denmark & I thought I would take
the time to tell you how much your music
means to me. I sat in the first row for
your last concert in Copenhagen & I
think your voice just gets stronger &
stronger every time I see you. I would really
love to see Blackmore’s Night in a
castle setting here in Denmark. I have been
going to Renaissance Faires since I was
16 years old & I kind of miss them here
in Denmark. I absolutely love all of Blackmore’s
Night’s music but “Ghost of
a Rose” will always be my favorite
because I heard you sing that for the first
time in concert here in Denmark, before
the album came out. I was completely transported
by that song & every time I play that
CD when I am driving I remember the moment
when I first heard you sing it. I am looking
forward to “The Village Lantern”
at the beginning of next year & I am
hoping for more interpretive songs from
you like the amazing rendition of “Diamonds
& Rust”. Keep spreading your love
& light throughout the world & come
back to Denmark soon.
p.s. Is Dragsholm Castle
We had such a great time in Denmark! As
a matter of fact the band photo that you
will see in the next album, Village Lanterne,
was taken at Dragsholm Castle. If you know
of a castle that has concerts in Denmark,
please let me know because, as you know,
playing castles are our favorite venues.
I think that the songs deserve that setting
and the castle helps to transport the fans,
the band, all as one back to another time.
Something which is not as natural for a
theater setting to accomplish. Ghost of
a Rose means so many different things to
so many people, its always interesting for
me to hear what the song means to people
and why it is there favorite. Many people
request this song. I'm glad that it means
so much to so many...
Yes, Dragsholm Castle is haunted, but so
many places are. It isn't anything to be
afraid of and its certainly not what Hollywood
makes it out to be. It, to me, is comforting
knowing that there are so many parallels
that we should be aware of. Even scientifically
everything is multidimensional, so why not
time? Why not our spirits after leaving
this time moving to the next stage...the
next plain? Not everything is explainable
in our limited vocabulary. We know that
even from when we try to explain feelings
that we are having ...you can't really put
an intense feeling into words.But we try...
I always believe in the realm of possiblilty...
Just because I havent seen it doesnt mean
it doesnt exist. You can't see love...but
you know its there...
As a matter of fact we did a seance last
time we were at Dragsholm and communicated
with a spirit who called himself "Big
Man." The next day our Japanese record
company representative flew in. He has always
told us he could see ghosts. I myself have
seen quite a few...I keep that knowledge
to myself usually... Anyway, when we asked
if the Record Company Representative saw
any ghosts at that moment at Dragsholm he
sad he did. We asked him if he could describe
what he saw to us and he said that there
was a "big man" standing in the
corner. We hadn't previously mentioned anything
about a seance to him before that.
Keep believing...and spreading your love
and light too...
My name is Susi and I am from Germany.
I visited your concert this year in Kranichfeld/
Germany ( maybe you remember?!) and it was
great!!! That's why I don't want to ask
you something, I just wanted to tell you
and your band that I love your music very
My dad is music freak and he allways listened
to Deep Purple and Rainbow.
About two years ago i began playing the
guitar. When I was practising the song Greensleaves
my dad came in with "Shadow Of The
Moon" and told me to listen to number
14. So I did and from that day the only
cd's that came into my cd player were from
Now, two years later, I actually have all
your cd's except "All For One",
but i will get this one, too.
All in all I can say that your music is
just great and ithelps me to go into another
world when I feel bad! ( Actually I also
listen to your music when I feel good. I
listen it allways and everywhere!!! )
But there came a question to me while I
was writing. When will your new album be
released and will you go on German tour
Thanks for being just CANDICE!!!
Love and 1000 kisses
Thank you for your sweet words. You have
the same name as my sister! Did you know?
I'm so glad that our music is able to transport
you to another world...that is exactly what
we are trying to accomplish so thank you
for joining us on the journey.
To answer your question: our next album
will be called the Village Lanterne and
should be out in Germany in February of
2006. Of course we will be back in Germany
for the summer of 2006. I wouldn't miss
it for the world... We are working on tourdates
right now and as soon as they are confirmed
I promise you they will be posted on the
tourdates page of blackmoresnight.com
so that you can see exactly where we'll
Thank you for being you Susi...
Love and 1000 kisses back to you...
Dear Ms. Night,
Hello. My partner, Linda,
and I have been fans of Blackmore's Night
for quite some time. We have all of your
cds, videos, and the new dvd - which we
really enjoy. We are looking forward to
your new cd! We enjoy your music on many
different levels. Linda is a Physical Therapist
for the Philadelphia hospitals and is always
stressed at her job - Blackmore's Night
music always helps to calm her down. I work
for NJ State Government - that stifles any
creativity! We are both Reiki Masters (
I do Reiki on our cats) and I am Roman Catholic/Wiccan
( I studied with Laurie Cabot in Salem,
Massachusetts). We don't always get the
chance but we love to dress up and go to
Sterling Forest, NY Renaissance Festival
and have also gone to New Jersey, Pennsylvania,
Maryland, and Massachusetts Festivals. We
try to create home for ourselves and our
cats that is quiet and healing and live
a life that is and I hate to use the phrase
but here goes, "new age". So your
music really holds a special place for us.
Linda never dreamed that
she would ever see you in concert, so for
Christmas/Yule I got tickets for her to
see you and Mr. Blackmore in Lakewood, NJ
and Collingswood, NJ last Friday and Saturday
night - as we live close by in Trenton,
NJ. What a great time we had in Lakewood
- the Geyers were so much fun and I got
to meet them during intermission. Your Christmas
carols were fantastic as was your Blackmore's
Night set - it was electric. As for Saturday,
I know people loved Mr. Blackmore's work
in Deep Purple - I did too, it's legend
- but as Ozzy Osbourne will always be associated
with Black Sabbath, Mr. Blackmore will always
be associated with Deep Purple and Rainbow.
It's a double edged sword, as they say.
All I can say is that I hope you do not
hold it against those of us from New Jersey
that have manners and are respectful of
an artist as opposed to those idiots that
were so rude to you and Mr. Blackmore. Please
come back to New Jersey in 2006.
I wish you and Mr. Blackmore,
a Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy
PS: I have to ask,
where can we obtain the Geyers cds as they
were sold of them at the concerts.
You and Linda sound like very interesting
people...and on a wonderful path of helping
others but in a genuinely heartfelt and
caring way as was done in the "old
days". That path of helping others
is a strssful one, but incredibly rewarding
when you realize all the good that you are
doing! And to have the background, open
mindedness and understanding that you do...
is an amazing gift. You both sound very
I'm so glad that you enjoyed the show in
Lakewood. We flew the Geyers over specially
to perform for those 3 shows. They are an
amazing group and it is so rare to hear
music so organic, so different, these days.
Especially in the American market. So I
guess you cold say that flying them over
was Ritchie's gift to the US fans. A chance
to experience something that they would
never have heard of before.
As you may know, Ritchie performed on one
of the Geyers tracks called: Göttliche
Devise. It is a realy amazing solo on a
great track that I know you will enjoy.
Our favorite Geyers albums to listen to
around the house are All Voll and Die Erste,
although all the albums are very good. As
a matter of fact, the title track to All
Voll is a song that we have adopted the
melody line of and changed into a song called
World of Stone which will be on our new
album: The Village Lanterne coming out early
Here is the link
to purchase Geyers cds. Their official website
is in English as well.
Thanks for the kind words and I hope you
had a wonderous New Year.
