Now I'm the type of person who has particular tastes, will like one track on an album but couldn't care less for the rest and need new things to keep my interest etc. Jumping from various music such as Enya to Kitaro, to Vangelis, Secret Garden, instrumental/soundtrack/'mysterious' music by varied composers and artists, I have once again found something that makes me feel like I am 'coming home'. I always knew of Adiemus from the past when I used to listen to Classical FM many years ago (though CFM only seemed to play Madre Natura? all the time), but recently I heard Zarabanda which blew me away, then several other tracks from across the albums. If you have ever hummed to yourself, not some simple ditty, but attempted to use your voice as an instrument going smoothly from one note to another, the sound of voices in Adiemus is similar varying from string-like to ethnic chanting. It sounds like you get a whole load of beautiful female voices, layered upon each other, with instruments such as lilting flutes, or ghostly strings to a rhythmic tambourine. And the most amazing thing about the music? I find it hits the right notes at the right times, the way it changes from one note to the next, it doesn't feel like they have chosen notes to fill in the blanks for the sake of it. As a testament to how much I regard I hold Adiemus in, I have ordered the first 4 cd's (only the first 4 have Miriam Stockley) and also Miriam's first album (all for the bargain price of under 40 pounds! Don't think you'll find that in HMV!). If you need other vague comparisons (that still only suggest what half the sound of Adiemus is like) to make up your mind try these: Enya - Afer Ventus, Final Fantasy Vocal Collections 1 - Prelude.
