This compilation is specially designed to help those suffering from the loss of a loved one to find moments of respectful repose and opportunities to release grief. The pieces are diverse -- ranging from a Chopin étude played on the cello and Debussy's familiar "La Fille au Cheveux de Lin" to the medieval music of Hildegard von Bingen and the strangely suitable accordion of Corciolli's "Opera Processio." Soothing nature sound tracks, such as a refreshing thunderstorm, cleansing water, and cheery songbirds, offer more neutral emotional territory amid the generally solemn pieces. While they aren't especially sad, the musical pieces all offer an appropriate depth -- one would not want their contemplation of a death to be trivialized. The most interesting of all is the eight-minute "Opera Processio" from the album Unio Mystica. The unusual piece begins with hypnotic notes on piano, a sentimental accordion refrain, and a woman's wailing vocalise; the second part features an almost jaunty processional played on saxophone. Other artists represented here are "spiritual" composers, such as Mike Rowland, Aeoliah, and David Sun. Whether the music takes one back to pleasant remembrances, brings about a reconnection with spiritual faith, or perhaps leads to some new perspective in meditations, there's a nice overall balance of sounds here. With so much on the mind, the listener's attention to the music will inevitably ebb and flow -- yet there's plenty of value to touch upon here whenever one comes back to it.
