CD Reviews

Peace in Jerusalem
Lisa M. Rhea | Franklin, TN USA | 01/25/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Sunita Stanislow skillfully and cleanly presents the beauty and emotion of Hebrew music on the harp. Accompanied by violin, oboe, and orchestra, this albumn ushers the listener into the mystery and majesty of Jerusalem's history. The listener must be prepared for the tensions of the day to slip away as this heavenly instrument sings out a loving tribute to the land where David once played soothing melodies on his harp."
