Decide for yourself
on 3 December 2009
As Mueed said in his review, don't be put off by others. We all listen to the music we like for ourselves, not to please someone else.
Music purists can be as bad as wine snobs (you must drink this posh plonk even if it tastes like vinegar because I say so).
Surely the definition of music is that it's pleasing to the listener. YOU are the listener - YOU decide.
What really matters is that respect for the roots of any traditional music and the people who created it is upheld and the pure form is remembered for posterity. Thankfully there will always be people who will do that. Many of them will be musicians who can also appreciate different arrangements.
As far is I'm concerned there's no disrespect here. Far from it. I will also note other more traditional CDs recommended here and probably invest there too.
This is NOT equivalent to contemptible advertising rip-offs of classic or classical music to avoid paying royalties to deceased composers or performers.
And talking of rip-offs, I wonder why this CD is so expensive. OK it's an import, but Sacred Spirit 1 isn't so I'll look elsewhere first before buying it from Amazon.
I've loved Sacred Spirit 1 for 15 years and never tired of it. I think it's about time I bought Sacred Spirit 2 now. My ears - my decision.
