"I usually hesitate when it comes to buying these ethereal quality music selections as they can pull you so much out of reality that they seem like those endless feel-good movies on Pax. But in this case, Kate Price is an exception. In this CD, she has a more focused style than she has in The Isle of Dreaming. Also, from a cultural standpoint, she definitely shows some flavor that's very different from other Celtic World Music artists. If you like more of the core, simpler melodies of dance and folk then you will like this. If you're looking for good background music and more of a 'floating' quality to the music, then get the Isle of Dreaming. Better yet, get both.I like the instrumentals more than the songs themselves, although my favorite songs in order are Labyrinth, Rest Sweet Nymphs, The Journey On, So Ghostly Then the Girl Came In, then the rest are probably on the same level as each other. Overall a very high quality production. The few photographs inside the CD cover were taken by her too."

"These dreamy, heartfelt vocals with hammered dulcimer and other inventive instrumental accompaniments draw from Celtic and world music traditions. In the program notes, Kate explains, "... to me the core of one's deep heart is not just a place to carry one's own river of peace. It is also the place from which we bring the beauty of our essence into being." And that is exactly what she has done here. The overall tone of this release is similar to "The Isle of Dreaming" but somewhat gentler. It contains, in particular, two stunningly beautiful songs that tug at the heartstrings and sooth the soul. "Place of Spirit" is a winsome duet for oboe and viola, with piano and cello accompaniment, while "So Ghostly Then the Girl Came In" is a haunting poem set to music that sounds like it evolved from the same creative niche as "Place of Spirit." Listen to the wistful weavings of melody and harmony in these compositions, and if you sing or play an instrument and feel comfortable improvising, join in. There's room, and to be a part of such music as this, even if only in your living room, allows you to truly appreciate it in all its richness and subtlety. Kate Price's 1993 release, "The Time Between" by Priceless Productions, is hard to find, but shows the roots of her style and is very nice in its own right. Try used CD websites, or just search the web with a good browser. If you like "Deep Heart's Core", you might also enjoy the creatively arranged vocals and hammered dulcimer of Trapezoid in "Moon Run" and John McCutcheon in "Step by Step", the vocal and multi-instrumental compositions of Lydia McCauley, and the early work of Loreena McKennitt."

"Beautiful! I recently bought Kate Price's Cd's, "Isle of Dreaming" and "Deep Heart's Core". Her voice, lyrics, and melodies took me home to "Avalon". Soul stirring and enchanting! It would be unfair to compare Ms Price to Loreena Mckennitt or Enya, she has a style of her own that cannot be compared to any other. However, if you love Loreena and Enya, you will absolutely love Kate Price...she is in the same league of talent and spirituality. I highly recommend you purchase her work, it shall stir the ancient soil within your soul, you will be transformed! Bravo and a standing ovation to Kate Price! Blessed Be."
