CD Reviews

Haunting and timeless
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Someone gave me a copy of this in 1994 and it's one of my most cherished CDs. I listen to it only occasionally, when I am seeking solace and the quiet beauty of these masterful performances. The liner notes suggest that the recording was made around 1968, though it was freshly mastered for this release, and I just can't believe that the music was recorded at that or *any* date.Stylistically, the music falls somewhere between classical, folk, and new age. All pieces are the product of Nicholson playing some stringed instrument (guitar? dulcimer?), and the combination of cascading melodies and intricate textures never fails to both engage and soothe me."
