"One clear harp in diverse tones"
E. A. Lovitt | Gladwin, MI USA | 04/12/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The Floridian harpist, Victoria Lynn Schultz has three solo albums to her credit: "Harp Dreams;" "Harp Favorites;" and the 2000 album "Soothing Harp" which was originally marketed with aromatherapy products for "Treatment of the Mind, Body & Spirit."The latter album features four of her own compositions: 'Tender Wishes;' 'Mystic Waters;' 'Reminiscent;' and 'Whisper Dreams.' There are also traditional favorites such as 'Greensleeves' and 'Scarborough Fair,' and a couple of dance tunes from the Renaissance. Close your eyes and let your thoughts resonate to the clear, beautifully-played strings of Schultz's harp and you'll be soothed without the need for essential oils, scented candles, or any of that other New Age clutter.This harpist also had a chance to tour with the traditional Irish band, The Chieftains when their group's longtime harpist Derek Bell died suddenly last October. Schultz joined them for their "Down the Old Plank Road: The Nashville Sessions" tour. Since she had been a Chieftains fan and a Celtic music buff for years, it was the opportunity of a lifetime.She has also written the book, "You Can Play the Harp."Speaking of New Age clutter, my only problem with this album is the inclusion of occasional water sounds that seem less like rain than like someone left a faucet running in the recording studio. There are also occasional bird songs, but these are minor distractions in what is essentially an album of harp music for meditation and relaxation."
My FAVORITE of Many Relaxation CDs!

"There is absolutely no vocals on this beautiful harp music CD, although if you don't like the sound of rain or a bit of nature behind some of the music, you may not agree with my admiration of this particular album. I LOVE IT! I have bought numerous "Soothing" music CDs that either throw in unappealing vocals that interrupt the flowing instrumentals or else inject a random fast-paced, spiced up, thundering piece that makes you jump right out of your skin! Not so here, that's why I LOVE IT!
Just a nice "Soothing" CD & I wish I could find more like it."
