THE GATHERING: 'The Musical History Tour' CD Available Now

January 24, 2005

Holland's THE GATHERING have issued the following update:

After some years of developing a new and groundbreaking way of teaching history, and educating our future history teachers all over Europe, Professor Wim Kratsborn succeeded in creating a project which contains the book of study, together with a CD-ROM containing visuals and sounds together with the learning material for all senses so the students learn to live and breathe this history timeline material. Earlier this month, Professor Wim Kratsborn released an audio CD from the project containing eleven songs performed by Anneke [Van Giersbergen, vocals], Rene [Rutten, guitar] and Frank [Boeijen, keyboards] of THE GATHERING.

"Our contribution is of course, the audio part. For every piece of the timeline, we created a little piece of music," stated Anneke. "Some spoken-word parts are done by Zlaya, Laurie-Anne [Kinder] and John Hayes. This music is also available on a separate CD.

"It's a nice and somewhat experimental release and fun for you GATHERING lovers to check it out. But mind you, this is not an official GATHERING release. It's a small piece in the big jigsaw puzzle of Wim and his companions. Nevertheless, it's nice to add to your collection."
