A close brush with his own mortality eighteen months ago was the driving force behind Mike Sheppard's decision to focus solely on his composing, putting aside his other commercial interests as a music publisher and producer. The Soul Rests Eternal marks the first fruits of this new direction.
The works take the listener on a journey exploring the emotional landscape of grief, bereavement and loss, but also hope, optimism and a celebration of life. Seen through the twin perspectives of the composer's eyes and a more global view, the album takes an emotional journey from the immediate to the eternal; the banal to the sublime. A 'radio-friendly' collection of three to six minute works, Classic FM have confirmed playlisting for the album upon its release in November.
Performances on the disc come from internationally renowned cellist Caroline Dale and the English Chamber Orchestra, conducted by the emmy-award nominated musican Steve Sidwell.

The Soul Rests Eternal is a unique new album of powerful, emotive music that has multi-faceted depths and an interesting human-interest story at every turn. 14 new works for solo cello and orchestra take the listener on a journey exploring the emotional landscape of grief, bereavement and loss, but also hope, faith, optimism and a celebration of life.
Caroline Dale (cello soloist on Dario Marianelli’s oscar-winning score to the film ‘Atonement’) was an instinctive choice as soloist, capturing the intensely soulful voice of the cello and exploiting fully the vast range of emotions encountered here. As Principal cellist of the English Chamber Orchestra, this CD presented another opportunity for the ECO to record again on Signum Classics, following their recent recording with harpist Claire Jones.
Conceived as an arts initiative, this album breaks new ground in that it offers an inspired way for the arts, charity and business sectors to work together, in this case serving to promote the Child Bereavement Charity, with which the composer had previously been involved.
This arts/charity/business initiative sees 20% of the music publishing rights assigned to CBC. This means the charity will not only benefit from record sales, but also from live performances, radio & TV broadcasts and sheet music sales as well as whenever the music gets used in film or TV. And because the charity will own its share for life of copyright, CBC will go on benefitting for 70 years after the composer's death. The charity will also enjoy a raised profile through the publicity generated by the album.
