    Splendid Music, Great Instrumentation, Short on length

    I bought this cd primarily for the hauntingly beautiful "All is Well." I was pleasantly surprised by the rich orchestrations that are used alone, as lead-in to the vocals and as codas to the vocals. They are dramatic and often played on my emotions with some very soft passages and loud crescendos. I really liked the "All is Well" and would like to know whether the solo was Michael himself at the age of ten or so. The other works are creative and positively splendid. My only criticism would be that the cd is rather short (might have it been at one time an LP?).
