Not quite as mellifluous as Lullabies, but still a nice album.

Catrin Finch has a fantastic technique, and it's a welcome change to hear a harpist using her harp as a musical instrument rather than just a harp - most other harp cd's contain permutations of the same old "standard" harp repertoire with depressing monotony. Unfortunately, the appalling synthesiser and percussion on most of these tracks combine with the cheesy arrangements to produce an overall sound worthy of a teenage Mantovani, which ruins the whole idea. Karl Jenkins writes great film music, but without a film for distraction this is toe-curlingly embarrassing. The Arrival of the Queen of Sheba is utterly laughable, and the arrangements of Chick Corea and Pat Metheny numbers in particular nearly drove me to violence. Catrin Finch should give Mr Jenkins the boot, or preferably one of her elegant stilettoes, sit down with some real LIVE jazz musicians and do all this again, properly! The only saving grace is when Ms Finch plays completely unaccompanied; unfortunately this occurs very rarely!

Oh, was I disappointed! I'd heard the title track on Classic FM and loved it, but most of the rest of the CD is a very different genres. Harp seems to be used like a guitar in places, but doesn't have the power to make this worthwhile, so all that's audible from it is repetitive strumming. At the start of 'Clair de Lune' it sounds as though there's the crackle and static of a radio being tuned, with odd bits of speaking. The playing of the tune itself is lovely, but then a man intrudes and speaks over it. Altogether a very odd CD, and I personally wouldn't recommend it to anyone who loves Classical Music! I was particularly surprised as it's produced by Karl Jenkins.

This is undoubtedly one of the most hyped-up albums I have heard in a long time. The arrangements are second-rate, typical of Karl Jenkins' wallpaper music, the playing average, and the recording nothing special. Stay away from this album which quite rightly belongs to the remainder bins.
