Recorded in 1994 and released on the ECM label in 1995. The music was inspired by Jerzy Kawalerowicz’s 1961 movie Matka Joanna od Aniołów. The band is Tomasz Stańko – trumpet, Bobo Stenson – piano, Anders Jormin – bass and Tony Oxley – drums.  A sometimes bleak but always evocative set of tunes with the fluid rhythm section creating an amazing bed of sound over which Stańko sprays torrents of notes, and Stenson creates calm amongst the storm.
