It is not often that I post a cover but here is an exception
I heard this song the first time last Friday sung by a 15 year old girl in the Danish X-factor and I was hypnotised by the beauty of it. Right after I found the original and it is even more beautiful.
The song Glimpse Of A Time comes from an Danish artist "Broken Twin". Behind is very talented young woman Majke Voss Romme (woman on the picture). She writes beautiful songs and sings them so well while playing guitar or piano. Her debut album "May" was released last year and I highly recommend it.
I have created this instrumental cover because I just had to. I tried to keep the arrangement simple like the original but I let the melody being played by 4 woodwind instruments: Clarinet, English horn, French oboe, and flute and developed it a tiny little bit.
But what I would really wish for is that a singer picks it up and sings it.
Here are some links to Youtube videos with the song in different versions
The song is (C) 2014 Antirecords and Majke Voss Romme (I hope this cover can elevate a little interest for her debut album)

Glimpse Of A Time - Majke Voss Romme
With a silver ring And a mind overage Did you come to belong? Did you look for the light? And did you feel the fire? Did it move you at all?
What was I but a glimpse of a time? Time What was I but a glimpse of a time? Time In your life In your life
I look through my mind But all that I find Is a permanent flow And it's written everywhere And it's running down my face But it's all that I know
Did you run any risk Or believe in a sign? I might be underage But I'm losing my mind
What was I but a glimpse of a time? Time What was I but a glimpse of a time? Time In your life In your life In your life In your life
