Review by Kathy Parsons
I have to be honest here and say that I really don’t like most harp music, so my previous experience with Hilary Stagg’s music has only been from Real Music compilation albums. However, this collection is so lovingly crafted and the liner notes are so heartfelt and compelling that it is impossible to not get caught up in this CD. Stagg’s life was cut short in 1999, and this album is a collection of eight pieces from his five original albums plus a piece composed for this tribute by 2002, and two pieces contributed by Kevin Kern and Andreas Vollenweider, Stagg’s primary source of musical inspiration. The music is soothing and peaceful, and is a great way to unwind and slow down the pace. The liner notes are full of testimonials from people who have been amazingly moved and healed (physically and emotionally) by Stagg’s music. His music has touched many lives, and will continue to do so. If you need some spiritual uplifting or just some sweet, gentle music to slow down the heart rate, this will definitely do the trick!
