"I was given Ciani's "History of My Heart" on cassette tape thirteen years ago and have enjoyed the music consistently since then. I purchased the CD version a couple of years ago so that "History" could remain a permanent part of my collection. The music is bouyant and evocotive -- perfect for relaxing, reading or driving. If you enjoy music by Enya, you'll surely love this album."

"My first Ciani album was the Velocity of Love and I confess that I didn't care for it that much. I'm not as drawn to electronic music as I am to acoustic, although there are exception (Ray Lynch, for example). Of course, that was then, and electronic music is now almost inescapable. What turned me around about Ciani's work was the Pianissimo series, in which I discovered that she really was an excellent acoustic performer with considerable composition skills.
This album it in between. Primarily electronic, the piano appears often (an alternative version of Anthem, Mozart, Eagle and Terra Mesa) it still manages to avoid what I call the 'bubblegummy' excesses that turn me off. Instead a balance has been struct, and several songs like Eagle and Anthem continue to get air time.
One reason for listening to this album is to build a sense of how Ciani developed. A classically trained pianist who proceeded to do electronic work for visual media for a decade and a half, she took a long time to mature her own style, and this album is a significant development even though it is by no means her best. It is enjoyable though, and worth picking up opportunistically.
What a wonderful CD!

"As one of Suzanne's greatest fans, I must say "History of my Heart" has to be one of the best compilations in this artist grandiose career!"
