Slow Music for Fast Times is exactly that. Taken from the NPR program "Hearts of Space," it calls itself a "long drink from an oasis." It certainly has a soothing, contemplative feel to it. The music is slow and nicely varied, ranging from choral pieces "Choral Masterworks: Alleluia" to chanting "La Buddha" to a guitar-based sound "The Lamentation of Turlough O'Carolan".

Bill Douglas' "Lake Isle of Innisfree" has an a cappella opening and a woodsy, open feel to it. Slow Music for Fast Times is background music; quiet and atmospheric, it's music to read, relax, or go to sleep to.
