Review by Kathy Parsons
As I’ve said before, the folks at Real Music do an especially good job of putting compilations together. The Sacred Spa Music Series Boxed Set consists of three CDs which are also available individually, and which are made up of the most soothing and relaxing tracks from previously released albums. The titles of the individual CDs are “Letting the World Go By”, “Wrapped in Stillness”, and “Quiet Days”.The collection is designed to promote and enhance the healing of “our mental, emotional, and spiritual selves”. The pace is leisurely, and the sounds wash over the listener like a cozy blanket or the warmth of the springtime sun. Featured artists include 2002, Kevin Kern, Paul Machlis, Bernard L’Hoir, Danny Wright, the late Hilary Stagg, Govi, Michael Hoppe, and Tim Wheater. While calming and quiet, most of the pieces have enough sparkle to keep the albums very interesting in the foreground as well as creating a lovely backdrop for other activities or simply unwinding. Piano, harp, flute, and keyboards make up most of the instrumentation. This a wonderful collection, and I highly recommend it for music to unwind to or simply to pamper yourself a little.
