This is the opening single for the light fare anime, SoRaNoWoTo. The title track, which is used as the opening theme for said anime, literally means Melody of Light and does provide a glimmer of light in the otherwise dark, damaged world of SoRaNoWoTo.

Ever since I heard of Kalafina from the Kara no Kyoukai movies, I've always liked their works. This new single is no different. Then again, it should come as no surprise since the group is the brainchild of composer Kajiura Yuuki who did such a fantastic job in BeeTrain's girls-with-guns anime, Madlax and Noir.
