Recorded live at the General Assembly of the United Nations on World Environment Day, 1984, this album features a "reunion Consort" of twelve including Susan Osborn and Jim Scott, with the 80-voice Back Bay Choral. During "Wolf Eyes," 2,000 people joined in what was most likely the UN's first howl-along chorus.

This is a 1985 edition but includes the same tracks.

"This is real contemporary genius at work. This collection includes the sounds of nature blended with gospel, folk, and classical and jazz tunes. Paul Winter has great reverence for nature and humanity, and it comes through in his music in a way that inspires me and everyone with whom I have shared this CD. Great lyrics with lines like: "The dark, dark night is ending, and morning has begun..."Regarding the ocean: "If she dies, nothing survives..."Although classed by most as "new age" music, what sets this apart from the Windham Hill collections I've listened to is this focus on blending of human artistry with nature, and I don't hear a lot of synthesized sounds on this recording. You will hear crowds singing with the wolves, and whales in chorus with the Consort. If you are unfamiliar with Paul Winter's work, this is an excellent place to start."
