    Unlike anything you have ever heard.

    I have countless cds..from most genres. This is on my shortest list of favorites...I don't know how to tell you why..other than when I first heard the cd as recommended from a trusted opinion I was struck by the beautiful sounds I was hearing....the tight harmonies of the Hilliard Ensemble..almost like the harmony of the Father and the Son of the Trinity...and then the wonderful free expressions of Garbarek's Sax weaving in and out,sympathetic and resonant with the harmonies....but yet another person entirely....like the Holy Spirit. Sometimes the Saxophone is shocking...but in a strangely appropriate way within the context of the piece. It is one of the few works that I turn to that never fails to satisfy. Think of towering cathedral forests of the imagination..shrouded in mist...and a trumpeting exotic bird calling out from within....

    Beautiful and Enchanting

    The music wisks you away into a place of peaceful solitude and meditation. I am a lover of classical music, jazz music, and gregorian chanting and the combination of all of these musical types is astounding. The harmony between the century old chants from the Hilliard Ensemble and modern saxaphone from Jan Garbarek gives way to one of the most rare combonations found in music today. As a child it put me to sleep and now it helps with meditation as well as providing an enchanting background while reading a book. It is truely worthwhile buy for any jazz or classical music lover.

    Save your money... I wished I had.

    The real problem with this CD is the mixing. The Hilliard Ensemble are wonderful but too soft. Jan Garbarek is often too load and sharp in comparison to the Ensemble. This could have been, and should have been, a great sound but whoever mixed it and produced it ruined the whole thing.
