Reviews

  • Beautiful, peaceful, and long

    By Whitebow
    It's true that a few pieces in this collection are robust rather than peaceful, but only a few. Most are beautiful and langorous, perfect for falling asleep. I play this while I'm working because I can't listen to lyrics while I'm at work (I'm an editor). The music is lovely. And while low price isn't exactly a sensible way to choose your music, I do enjoy getting 19 hours of music for the price of one album. I can listen all day (two or three days!) and not hear the same composition twice. I recommend this album for anyone who wants beautiful, peaceful music, and lots of it.
  • So many to delete

    This was promising. There were over 30 songs that I had to delete because a grand crescendo or several always woke me up. Not good and not worth it
