5.0 out of 5 stars Compact, with great sound., 30 Mar 2014

Lived up to the comments of other reviewers. Great value and a crisp clear sound. Fit neatly on the shelf, with a sound much greater than their physical size.

5.0 out of 5 stars Up to his usual standard, 30 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sounds very like the typical Karl, with some beautiful soaring choruses and the instrumentation we've grown to expect. A good addition to the CD library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Saw these abroad - they're great, 30 Mar 2014

Looks great and, with very fine mesh, gives a very clean mug of tea. Much stronger than many of the mesh netting types, so keeps its shape very well. Great product

3.0 out of 5 stars Clannad revisited, 26 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nádúr (Audio CD)
For any listener hoping for the "old Clannad" with mystical, soaring sounds, this will be something of a disappointment. The image on the cover, of rather "mature" performers come together for a belated reprise (as is happening so often nowadays), is mirrored by the sound, which is more simplistic and less crystal clear than the Clannad we knew and loved so well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Deva's lovely voice, with orchestral arrangements, 26 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Essence (Audio CD)
A good variety of chants, sung in Deva's inimitable style. Personally, I prefer her singing with more simple arrangements, including solo, or with usual guitar, flute and organ/synthesiser, so this is not top of my pile of Deva CDs - but gives a good contrast - and interesting versions of one or two tracks which she has also recorded differently elsewhere.


Flute Fingering Chart (Amsco Fingering Charts)
Flute Fingering Chart (Amsco Fingering Charts)
by Brenda Murphy
Edition: Sheet music
Price: £2.97

3.0 out of 5 stars Set out in a quite useful way, 26 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This chart is quite easy to use and sets out the different fingerings clearly. It doesn't contain much additional information, so should be considered as described - a fingering chart - rather than any degree of playing guide.


528Hz Solfeggio Meditation.
528Hz Solfeggio Meditation.
by Ali Calderwood
Edition: Audio CD

4.0 out of 5 stars Well structured meditation with great sonic backing tracks, 26 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Glen's accent sounds slightly strange and inappropriate at times but the meditation content is well-structured - although veering towards hypnotic techniques rather strongly for some perhaps. There could perhaps be a stronger differentiation between the two meditations included, with the alternative ending/purposes being more distinct.

The music used comes from Anima's Sound Medicine CD (Ali Calderwood under a different persona), so if anyone is getting Glenn's CD for the sound as much/more than the meditation, I would recommend Sound Medicine instead.

4.0 out of 5 stars What it says on the "tin"/cover!, 26 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Frank's book really does cover every possible aspect (and some more beyond) of singing bowls. It's quite a massive read, which may have to be approached in stages or selectively in the first instance but acts as a wonderful source reference book for any reader interested and involved in this area of sound and associated spirituality.


Sonic Wonderland: A Scientific Odyssey of Sound
Sonic Wonderland: A Scientific Odyssey of Sound
by Trevor J. Cox
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £13.60

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating mix of examples, 26 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For anyone interested in the applications of sound and (latterly) some awareness of acoustics, this book gives a wealth of examples, explained and described in an easy-to-follow format. It considers both the natural and built environments - giving food for thought for the full spectrum of readers, from naturalist to architect.
