Review this product
Top reviews from other countries
The compilation comprise fifteen songs of less than an hour total duration but whatever you miss in time span you over-compensate in quality. From beginning to end, we listen to heavenly choral music with a contemporary feel; music of purity, clarity and beauty, simultaneously soothing and uplifting. The predominantly female voices impact on you with crystalline clarity and transport you to an altogether higher level of spirituality while the piano accompaniment is nothing less than compelling, contributing to the total effect. Gjeilo comes on his own in the solo piano pieces, generally in a measured slow pace, with music of fascinating hues and spare aesthetics but so rich in its impact.
In conclusion, we listen to music of awe inspiring beauty.
