CD Reviews

Another classroom favorite!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I use this album, along with Simple Gifts when I teach my Junior High students about Shakers. They love both of these albums, as do I. I know I will continue to listen to them long after I have left the classroom. It just wouldn't seem like fall to me without these quiet, calming, Shaker hymns."
Beautiful Guitar.....

"I saw these musicians recently....you won't be sorry if you are looking for well-crafted traditional Shaker (and other) music."
