Sacred Space Musicby Constance Demby
Constance Demby has a special meditative affinity for the hammered dulcimer; when struck by wooden hammers, its nearly 100 strings can create a swirling explosion of sound that seems to pave a path to eternity. Sacred Space Music offers two extended pieces. "The Longing" broils with the dulcimer's waves of sound; overhead, piano and viola hold hands -- do they give in to the Gypsy rush of passion? Or long achingly from afar? The duet between viola and piano is mouthwateringly divine. Toni Marcus plays viola here, and skillful electronic overdubbing opens spacious vistas. "Radiance" enters like a cool breeze of stardust as the dulcimer sweeps gently up and down the scales. As galactic layers of synthesizer strings and organ chords mass, Demby's voice lures like an angelic siren. The effect is like being escorted to heaven, then offered even more heaven; bells, played by Warren Dennis, herald your arrival, and the hammered dulcimer twinkles star showers. A breathtaking treat for the weary soul.
