Oddly enough, newcomers to the Adiemus experience could do far worse than start here and work backwards. Unlike its predecessors, this volume of new music for orchestra-plus-quasi-early-music-stroke-ethnic-vocals purports to be based on a kind of potted history of dance music (that's s in Grove rather than groove), with the resulting rhythmic diversity enlivening the music no end. However, what seems to have escaped even the composer (at least if his po-faced booklet notes are anything to go by) is the unassailable fact that dance has always had an enormous influence on the style and form of popular music, which has in turn informed this music in some cheer-inducing ways. Jenkins himself points us towards his gavottes, waltzes, rumbas and square dances, but the musical results are a splendidly unstuffy mixture--Adiemus does the torch song, Adiemus does the Victorian parlour ditty, Adiemus does Disney--which is immediately enjoyable. The effect is like that of a good stage musical, producing a frisson of recognition with every number. This is recommended on grounds of sheer affability. --Roger Thomas

I really did enjoy the first CD "ADIEMUS - Songs of Sanctuary" and so I went through the reviews of other ADIEMUS CDs on the Amazon sites and decided to chance it. What can I say? If you enjoyed the first ADIEMUS, you will most definitely like this one! Music that makes you happy. Two thumbs up! A CD that gets a permanent space in my CD changer ;)

It's so amazing to me re-discovering Karl Jenkins,that I knew only on Soft Machine keyboards,as composer arranger and producer in a so powerful and emotional project like this!! Soon as I bought this record,many people told me that"Adiemus"was the title of a famous tune,well-known also in Italy...and I bought also "Songs of sanctuary"...wonderful! I'm so happy hearing these enchanting harmonies .. at least a new,intellingent,fresh and innovative musical project! Thank you,Karl,also from Italy!

I don't know why no one would like to say something about this album! If you like "Songs of..." and "Cantata Mundi", you will certainly enjoy this one! Karl Jenkins-in my opinion-is one of the best musician such as Michael Cretu and Eric Levi.I'm sure that he will do even more excellently in the future.You have to know it is not enough if we just listen to Eminen or N-Sync!By the way,"Adiemus IV" is on sale now. It is still perfect!

I was surprised when I popped this CD into the player -- the music was much different to the first two albums. It sounded a bit more like tribal chanting, but it seemed strangely effective. After a few rounds, I was hooked and humming to the tune. Keep it up, KJ!

Really good album keeping up with the rest of his works. An unusual collection of Dances in the Baroque vein. If anything it is a little disjointed in places and does not quite reach the heights of the other albums such as Adiemus 1 & 2 and Imagined Oceans but it was an attempt at combining elements of the Baroque with more modern writings. Enjoyable but as part of his overall collection.

If you remember the British Airways adverts with fondness then this album will not disappoint you. A modern twist to classical music with a view to melody, tone and relaxation. Great to just lounge to with this playing in the background. For those who are not full on classical aficionados then this will be a gentle introduction to what music can do. From here you can move to Carl Orff and the Carmina Burana or Holst's the Planets Suite.

Having looked at the other reviews for this CD I feel somewhat saddened that my review is different. This CD disappointed me against all of Karl's others. All the tracks to me were far too identical in sound, music and voice. I found myself using the FFwd button skipping most of the way through. Feel let down on this one.

Carl Jenkins does it again, the flavour of this ethnic like european sound does make the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end.
No doubt some large Blue Chip Comapany will snap this one up in time to promote its corporate image.
Well Done Carl!!!!!!!!
