Hauntingly beautiful celebration of the Goddess Spirit

I bought this CD in 1999 while trying to find another artist who's name I had missed but wanted the track. This was not the CD I was looking for (which I never did find!) but, nevertheless, still became one of my most precious and treasured CDs. This CD has shared the player with hard hitting Rock & Roll, Punk, Grunge and all sorts of genres but has always had a place because this woman's voice and delivery is just plain awesome and touches something so deep.
Sure it's a bit of a shock for the visitors if the player moves on from the Sex Pistols, The Cramps, Hole or Whitesnake or someone to Cecilia but if there was ever a voice that could be described a heavenly, I reckon this is it. Cecilia makes most Opera sound wooden and unemotional, disciplined without passion. Cecilia makes the legends of emotional and meaningful such as the blues legends or artists like Joan Baez sound more folky and less refined, just by comparison (and I could never say a bad word about Joan Baez or her music!).
It's only by finding this CD here on Amazon that I have actually found anything more out about Cecilia than was included in the liner notes all those years ago. There are now three certainties in life-1. Death, 2. Taxes and 3. I will own everything of Cecilia's I can lay my hands on. Unless she's lost anything since `Voice of the Feminine Spirit' both musically and lyrically she is spectacular!!
A voice of peace and happiness

"I have bought almost a dozen of these CDs to share with people - I gave many of them for presents. What a way to find peace and happiness just listening to Cecilia - I either play it while I cook or during dinner - or just in mediation. Awesome!"
