Clean, clear uncluttered sounds

"The flute is the predominant instrument used throughout and its simply beautiful. Nature sounds like running water, birds singing, compliment the flute. There are a few songs with drums in combination with the flute but its a very subtle background drumming. The pace of each song is slow and melodic, definitely relaxing. I've been playing this cd on my way home from work and it has really helped me to recenter myself each day. Simply lovely. Definitely recommmend it!"
A beautiful CD, deserving a home in your collection...

"I've owned copies of this album for several years, and just bought my another, since friends who hear it permanently borrow it. We're taking it to hospital with us for the birth of our first child. I've used it during Music Therapy sessions with patients that I've worked with who have severe developmental disabilities, with great results! We have a tradition of playing this CD first on Christmas morning. The music is soothingly serene, yet ripe with energy. So many "music with nature sounds" recordings are trite, but this brings the combination together with simple elegance. You'll turn to it again and again."
Very sparse and simple

"This CD is mainly a solo flute, very sparse sounding and very simple. There's some nature sounds but they aren't really integrated into the music, they're just "there." Judging by the other reviews, I thought this would be a richer, more melodic CD. Instead it's just a single flute playing pretty songs without any enhancements. If that's what you enjoy, you will probably love this. I personally prefer music that is more than one simple instrument being played. (My favorite Native American CD is How the West Was Lost by Peter Kater and R. Carlos Nakai.)"
