Music for Yoga [Oreade Music]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Carol Wright

"Holy Fire" (from the album FIRE by Hans Visser) is crisp yet deeply moving -- a simple keyboard melody is answered by a rhythmic pulse on the violin. Soon a woman's beautiful vocalise joins the melody, then a cello, and finally a church organ, creating a stunning theme-and-variations.
