There are moments in life when you can become speechless,I have always liked the ethos of the ECM label,and in the the vast majority of albums they release hit such a standard that other labels can only dream of,this is aone such album.
Garbarek and the Hilliards are in a stratosphere of their own,this truly stunning album achieves a benchmark even in ECMs high standard.the music is never short of stunning with Garbarek weaving his magic spell with beautiful,gracefull and moving sounds so much so that the problems of the world seem to disapear.
The Hilliard ensembles vocal ambience was never better,and having seen Garbarek and the Hilliards perform this live in concert,this is no one hit wonder.
This album changed the way that i listen to music,if you get a chance let this into your life,soul and heart and you will feel much better for it.
The music is enchanting,haunting and beautiful,and dates from the 13th14th and 15th century and it is a credit to all performers that it still sounds fresh today,if you like this try Gothic Voices "A Feather on the breath Of God"
Buy this album and be at peace with yourself
