This is music for hammered dulcimer that soothes the soul: a rich tapestry of Celtic moods for gentle, quiet contemplation. The melodious and gentle sounds of the leather-covered wooden mallets dancing across eighty strings creates a harp-like resonant sustain that brings a special beauty to the ancient melodies. Add a rich overlay of strings, the deep tonal qualities of woodwinds, traditional Celtic and early music instruments and this album will take you into the light. This collection is created especially for relaxation, meditation and massage using selections from Maggie Sansone's A Traveler's Dream, Ancient Noels, Mist & Stone and Dance Upon the Shore. Maggie writes: "I am pleased to gather in one special collection the most contemplative melodies from my recordings. While based in the Celtic tradition, they express a universal quality, transcending borders and speaking to the highest in all of us with lightness and joy!"
