This is not the way sacred music is supposta sound

"I'm sorry, Mr. Augustine, you butchered this beautiful music on your cd. This is sacred music and is supposta be played like it's romantic and the passionate music of our soul. On this cd the music was played with a hard cold sound. It is offensive to me that it couldn't have played with a softer touch. I have many cds of this nature that I enjoy listening to much more than this one.In good faith, I can not recommend this cd."

"because I have not listened to the whole CD. I just heard the song-- Asokan Farewell, and it blew me away.
I don't know how the other songs will sound but if Ashokan Farewell is any indication of how Mr. Augustine plays the piano, I am sold. It was a very moving, passionate piece and I look forward to hearing more of his music."
