    Wonderful

    As a black/goth metal listener, I already hedge towards the more medieval side of music, but when I found these guys I was blown away. This is like the Aria series, only instead of opera, these guys use the old latin chant styles mixed with modern vocals. Fundumentum instantly became one of the most listened to songs I own. This CD is definately worth buying.

    You will NOT regret owning this CD

    One of my top 5 albums (CDs) of all time. The music is simply top notch, bringing forth emotions and feelings like few albums do. Each song is a classic in its own right. Share this one with your friends.

    The Magic of Music

    I first heard this cd from a friend that has always recommended beautiful music, whether pop or new age, world or classical and i fell in love with this cd from the first note and voice i heard. Simply put this cd is a diamond in the rough and it holds its own throughout the entire cd. Great packaging and artwork made me enjoy this cd even more while listening to it. I play it pretty much everywhere and enjoy it alot. This will be a great holiday gift to all my relatives and friends. Keeping the spirit alive with Lesiem.

    ''Enigma meets Pink Floyd''

    I first heard track number 5 ''Occultum'' while on vacation in Las Vegas and was instantly captivated. A small sticker on the CD read'' Enigma meets Pink Floyd'', and that is really the truth. A sound born from the two groups that I enjoy.

    Voices of Angels!!!

    This music is soothing,calming,upbeat and melodic at the same time.Beautiful gregorian chants with live instruments and female vocals makes this a pleasant surprise for anyone who appreciates classical,new age,opera and world music.Hauntingly beautiful in places and seductively sensual in other places. This music would be great in nightclubs or in the atmosphere of a cafe or bookstore.Great production and packaging on this cd gives it the ability to appeal to many listeners.Lesiem are the voices of angels and as magical as the the true magus within. Thank you for such a great cd.

    Listen....Listen I hear Angels....Singing

    Simply put, this is heavenly and inspirational music. Gregorian chanting from an actual Berlin choir made up of 12 men that wear (Cirque du Soleil) masks and sing in Latin over worldbeat loops,dreamlike guitars and warm melodic synthesizers.Spiritually uplifting and hauntingly beautiful. Sensual and driving at the same time makes Mystic Spirit Voices a must have for lovers of Opera,New Age/Ambient and Worldly Pop music.You really have to hear this music to understand what i am talking about...my explanation or description pales in comparison to what this group actually sounds like and the affect it has on me. I am happy there are samples that people can listen too if they want to get a taste of this group.I highly recommend this to music to those that are searching for something more and deep in the musical world.Lesiem,are a slice of Heaven on Earth!

    Sensual rhythms,gregorian chanting and lush operatic influences makes Mystic Spirit Voices an incredible cd.This music is great for relaxing and soothing the soul. I find it helpful when i am reading,driving or making love. Beautiful and full of passion,Lesiem carry the seductive poetry of angels across the heavens and introduce the world to their own style of 'mystic pop'So far everyone that i have played this cd for has been loving it.Pure bliss for those who love gregorian chanting with a twist.
