We are very grateful for all the support and love we have received during the years we have worked with our dream. We want to thank our mothers and fathers and all the members of our families, including all our extended families and all our wonderful friends. Without you this album wouldn’t exist.
My belief is that love is what we reach for.
Special thanks go to Tomi Färm and his family. Your help and advice and all your support has been indispensable. Without you we would definitely not be where we are. We thank Sami Koivisto for being such a great partner to cooperate with at such short notice. You were exactly the right pilot to lead us to the final port.
Cause he wanted to show where we should go now
What makes the CoreBaroque sound is the sound of beautiful instruments played by unique artists. We thank the following wonderful musicians: Aleksi Santavuori, Atte Kilpeläinen and Hannu Kiiski for playing strings and Tuukka Vihtkari for playing bassoon. You just came and played for us without questioning. We are forever thankful because you made our music become real.
I climb to the peak, I believe I can find things I seek

I dive to the sea and I want you to dive there with me
The lyrics were written in English with the valuable help of Tuulikki Killenberger and Erkki Pohjanpalo. And the vocals reached a new level with the precious advice of Riitta Keränen.
There are places to go things I want you to know
