Synopsis

Album Description
"SOME ALBUMS WARN LISTENERS "do not operate heavy machinery while listening to this music." I'd take the "warning" beyond that. Do not sit upright nor stand because this music will dissolve you. "Indescribable" only starts to describe it .... It folds over itself, exudes, and disappears. But none of that put together adds up to the sublime mystery of what makes me go wherever it is that is beyond language, beyond memory, beyond explanation. Perhaps she's found the way to make time reverse. She has given us a remarkable gift: the carpet of sound to the "all-or-nothing." -Carol Wright, music writer for New Age Voice, BN.com "THE OPENING MINUTES OF THIS ALBUM HERALD A QUALITY THE LIKES OF WHICH YOU WILL RARELY HEAR ON A SYNTH ALBUM. The first piece stops you in your tracks with its sheer, almost overwhelming beauty? for this is the sound of heaven - like never before. It really is almost overwhelming, one of the most beautiful musical experiences I think I've ever heard in this genre... There is a lot of music out there to be lived, but few that truly touch the soul - this is one of the few." - CD Services "ALTERNATE AWARENESS - This deep space music is intended for meditation and introspection. The soundscapes just reach out and grab listeners. It becomes an alternate awareness that allows listeners to enter a trance-like state of being. Within that state, deep listeners see more clearly. The journey leads to increased spiritual and emotional well-being. Essential for new age and space music fans." ~ All Music Guide "EXPANSIVE, tender, and passionately spiritual, Demby's music is designed for stress relief, contemplation, and serenity. Given Demby's multidimensional talents, it's no wonder her music is listened to all around the world." - New Age Retailer

A Musical Stairway To The Stars!
International Acclaim | New York City | 04/29/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"With this recording, Constance Demby, the undisputed founder of sacred symphonic space music, has created a musical stairway to the stars. In a word, 'Sanctum Sanctuorum' is remarkable. Not only musically sophisticated and gorgeously produced, the piece as a whole is a deepening of Demby's important work to new heights. At least initially, we could not help but to be reminded of the well-known Requiems by Faure and Durufle. But 'Sanctum' sets the standard for sacred symphonic space music for the new millennium reaching realms not possible prior to this work. Finally, electronic music technology has caught up with Demby's compositional genius to produce a benchmark that transcends the genre."
Sanctum... Could not have come at a more appropriate time.
C. Gallahun | Whurld's End | 11/14/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"From the beginning, you know that this is the music of healing. Our world changed forever on September 11th. Since then, we've started to heal, to try to understand more about the world as well as ourselves. The music is deeply moving, stirring. It's the music of a truly new age, bringing you to the cosmic reaches of your spirit. When I listen to Sanctum, my heart soars and I realize that anything is possible."
Another masterpiece, just when we needed it the most!

"On the twentieth of September I wrote the following thank you note to Ms. Demby: "I just had to write and express my sincere thanks and let you know how much comfort your latest CD has been. I consider you one of God's greatest gifts to the people of our times. God bless America and God bless Constance Demby!" A bit over-sentimental? Perhaps, but heart-felt just the same. The coincidental releasing of this CD right after September 11th seems almost providential. If ever there was music that could heal, this is it -- and if ever we needed healing, it is now.
If you are not familiar with the music of Constance Demby, you should know that she is no "ordinary" New Age artist. I call her music "Ethereal Music of Substance". Although it has a definite otherworldliness quality, it is musically complex. Sometimes with complicated counterpoint reminiscent of J. S. Bach, sometimes tender yet emotional like Rachminoff or Tchaikovsky, sometimes powerful and majestic like Mozart. Yet this album is a bit different than the rest. More than anything else, it is a prayer. The innocent and sincere prayer of a child, a prayer for peace, a prayer for healing. Regardless of your religious affiliation or beliefs, if you are a person attuned to the spiritual, you will find that your very heart and soul resonates with this music. Ms. Demby has given the world something very special in this recording. Something very special indeed!"
