Synopsis

Amazon.com
Released in 1989, harpist Hilary Stagg's 42-minute Feather Light offers a modest, easy-listening assortment of quiet pleasures intended more for rumination than serious meditation. Stagg, playing an acoustic-electric harp, intertwines his peaceful, laconic playing with a small ensemble (acoustic and electric guitars, synthesizer, violin, occasional percussion) to create moods that mostly occupy a midrange between earthy and ethereal. The first two selections, "Easy Days" and "For My Love," convey an almost countrified demeanor (with occasional slide-guitar sections lazily, effectively accenting the mix), giving you a mental picture of a barefoot Stagg a-pickin' and a-blissin' on his cosmic back porch. The affect is appealing, and Stagg's unhurried touch adds a nice grass-blade-in-your-teeth, lounging-in-the-meadow atmosphere to tracks such as "Lovers' Reunion" and "Peaceful Journeys." The lovely "A New Beginning" stirs the mental impression of a rose slowly unfolding into full blossom. Too bad Stagg ends things with "No Pressure," where ill-advised drum patterns make the piece sound like cheesy bar music. Other than that misstep, Feather Light is a pleasant (if unspectacular) sonic diversion. --Terry Wood

CD Reviews

Feather Light is oh so right
Riki N. Nagle-Ker | United States | 01/14/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In my business, as a massage therapist, you want to create the right atmosphere for your clients. Many times you purchase CDs and some of the selections are appropriate while others are totally wrong. This CD is a perfect mix of harp, guitar, violin and piano. Every selection compliments the one before. My clients all comment on my excellent choice of music when I play this CD. Highly recommend."
Touching Beyond Belief

"Warning! This CD may bring tears to your eyes. It is probably the most touching music I have ever heard. If you're looking for gentle music for meditation, massage or quiet reading time, try this. There is not a song I don't just love on this album - there are no surprises from the samples you'll hear. I also purchased Dream Spiral but it didn't have the same impact on my soul as this one did...and continues to do so. A great gift for any massage therapist!"
A calming sound in a hectic world

"When my middle child was a baby she was extremely fussy and would cry and scream for hours (day or night). One day she started up in a shop we were in and I started to leave when the owner said "Wait" and turned on Feather Light. My child stopped crying immediately and started looking around to find the source of the music. I purchased it on the spot! It became her day and night music that soothed her every time. She's 12 now and we've had to purchase this CD 4 times because we've worn them out. We love all the Hilary Stagg CD's, it's not just music you listen to, it's music you can feel."
