A sonorous selection.
This kind of music asks one to be still and listen - it may not be a first choice as travel music.
I love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thorough treatment, 28 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Among the many books I've got about Nasreddin Hodja (Mulla Nasrudin), this is on the top. There are many of the old, lovely stories or jokes. It is scholarly and thorough, and yet with ample space for many of the good stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars Early Italian lute music I absolutely like, 22 Jun. 2012
This CD of early Italian lute music may be the one that pleases me most among the many I've come across so far. Franklin Lei's persistent, mellow, "half-grating sound" of plucked strings appeals to me. I welcome it.
I have nothing harsh to say against this appealing, valuable work of music. It is good to listen to and perhaps be carried away to some degree by the patternings of early European lute music that seems to move to and fro and blend so neatly. [ASIN:B00015ECW6 Early Italian Lute Music]

This is a sort of music that is capable of holding and moving a listerer deeply. It is well played too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heavenly sounds or not?, 4 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Heaven is a place for "harpers playing on their harps" (Revelation). So why not be prepared and train that listening ear . . . Som harp records are smoother than others. This one is my favorite today. Fresh and light, sounding well. And by the way, they played harps in ancient Egypt and in many other countries before the Bible was written.

I have come to appreciate the lute composer S. L. Weiss. Moreno's playing is a pleasure listening to. He plays measuredly.

5.0 out of 5 stars A gem of a great tradition, 4 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One thing should be pointed out: The advertised Brahma Purana here is not the complete Brahma Purana, but one of four volumes that go into the translation edited by Shastri and Bhatt. I think it had better be pointed out if the seller(s) won't.
I ordered the Brahma Purana as advertised here, and it was the third volume of the full Brahma Purana.

I still treasure it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exquisite music, 28 April 2012
This review is from: Classical Lute (Audio CD)
I'm glad I've got this CD, Toyohiki Satoh's recordings on lute and bass lute are refreshing. I have come to appreciate his playing a lot. Further, it seems to me he's having a good time when playing too. His exquisite phrasing tends to be more distinct/punctuated than that of many other bass lute players. His second track, Folla d'Espagne, may serve as an example. And, by the way, that melody comes close to Händel's Sarabande as it is played by the Academy of Ancient Music.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's wonderful music, 24 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pieces de Theorbe (Audio CD)
Theorbo is bass lute, noted for a quite mellow, sonorous and enriching sound. Bass lute music has come down to us from centuries past. Here is French bass lute music as writtend own by Robert de Visée, lute teacher of the much appreciating Louis IVX. Tunes are smooth, and some are catchy to me too. I sometimes sit back in an easy chair, close my eyes and listen.
