about

The 7 daughters of Atlas and Pleione were so beautiful no man or God could look away. Zeus, in his jealousy and desire to protect the sisters turned them into doves and they flew into the sky becoming stars.

Peter Davison lives high in the mountains of Idyllwild, California. The night sky is very dark and he became fascinated by this tiny diamond shaped constellation, The Pleiades. The music is composed in the order of the sister’s births, a separate track for each. Then follows a dramatic chase across the galaxy as Orion chases The Pleiades constellation through the sky. Composed for orchestra, ancient Greek instruments, choir and more, the music takes you back in time to the age of the Gods. Included in the CD notes are the tales of each of the Pleiades Sisters.
