(12 August 2002) Unforscene Music is a joint venture between A & F Music Ltd. (Sam Feldman and Bruce Allen) and Nettwerk Productions. Its most recent release, the soundtrack for The Brothers McMullen (Grand Prize winner at 1995's Sundance Film Festival), features Sarah McLachlan's hit single "I Will Remember You". The label released the Kissed Motion Picture Soundtrack (Unforseen Music (Canada/USA) 6 24248 4000 2 7, 1997) featuring the material of Kristy Thirsk, Sarah MacLachlan and others.

Kristy Lee Thirsk possesses the sweet soprano voice which has come to define the sound of her group, Rose Chronicles. The band's second album, Shiver, (review)reached #1 on Canada's Campus Radio Charts and went on to win the first JUNO award presented for "Best Alternative Album". Her amazing voice has received international exposure on Delerium's hit single "Flowers Become Screens" and is ever-present in her composition "Bounds of Love," recorded specifically for Kissed.

While the tracks by the other artists are notable in their own rights, Kristy's track, "Bounds of Love," is clearly the standout appearing at position 16 in the 18-track running order of the album. Supported by gentle string arrangements, Kristy's crystalline solo lead dominates the ballad which is further underscored with harmony layers. One only has to hear Kristy vocally soar to deliver the emotional message to be enthralled with the track.

A Kristy Thirsk collection can not be completed without this stunning soundtrack with material from other Nettwerk artists Delerium, Tara MacLean and Sarah McLachlan. Worth a trans-Atlantic journey this one is a must listen!
