Echoes of Nature: Rainforest, Various Artists Play samples on Amazon.com, read reviews and purchase!”I own several Rainforest CD’s and I love their relaxing rain sounds. This one by far is my favorite! It has three tracks, “Tropical Rain,” perfect for promoting restful sleep. I enjoy its soft, soothing sounds like rain falling on leaves, “Jungle River” sounds like a waterfall and is very lulling to the senses, and “Birdsong” which is calm and relaxing. This is an environmental CD with NO music on the tracks, just the pure relaxing sounds of nature. Great for relaxing or for falling asleep.”
“This is a favorite CD for many who need help falling asleep, no matter how stressful the work “day” has been. “A Day on Cape Cod: Summer Rain” does not have the sounds of thunder that some of the other rain recordings have, which can be a plus for many people. You’ll want to curl up in your warm snugly bed and fall asleep to the sound of rain falling on a summer’s evening.”
For each purchase in the A Day On Cape Cod series of the Atmosphere Collection, a donation will be made to The Nature Conservancy.

Winter into Spring, George Winston Play samples on Amazon.com, read reviews and purchase!”Poetry for piano, the music of George Winston plays like a lyrical soundtrack to the natural world of rhythms, and nowhere is this more brilliantly enacted than on his third album, Winter into Spring. There are wonderful and beautiful melodies here, but what’s more amazing is Winston’s intense inspiration that flows from his heart straight to the keys. His simple technique brings any listener with an artist’s soul to experience the most tender feelings. Full of emotion and light, he urgently rolls through songs like aspen leaves fluttering in the wind. From the first sparse, tinkling notes of “January Stars,” Winston pulls you into his solitary dreamscape and doesn’t let you go until the CD’s end. During “January Stars” it’s hard not to imagine standing in crunchy snow while staring up at stars glittering in a black, expansive sky. Another standout, the 10-minute “Rain,” may be the most archetypal of Winston pieces. Beginning with serene, deliberate melodies, the piece jumps into a chiming complexity that grows until the listener is drenched in streams of rushing-watery notes. It’s fitting that Winston named his album as a transition in season as the music takes you across and beyond the moment of listening to it. A masterpiece.” ~ Karen Karleski
Summer, George Winston Play samples on Amazon.com, read reviews and purchase!”George Winston has the unique ability to play bright, uplifting, yet stingingly melancholy piano, and Summer is one of the best examples of his fine work around. Somewhere between the ambient-style tone poems of Winter into Spring and the melodious charm of Autumn, Summer dances brightly, evoking images of relaxing under a tree or children playing in a field. Highlights are many and include Winston’s “Lullaby,” full of melody and lyrical tension; “Hummingbird,” with its whirling repetitive structure, reflecting the vibrant dimension of nature during the summer season; and the fun, rambling “Corrina, Corrina.” In short, this is another album of what Winston does best–underscoring the poetic moments of life through poignant, beautiful music.” ~Karen Karleski
“I’ve loved the music of Winston’s, “Summer,” for many, many years. It is by far the warmest collection of George Winston arrangements I’ve ever listened to and perhaps the best CD to start with if you’re a new fan of his – you won’t be disappointed. A definite favorite of mine and an outstanding album in the genre of new age music.” ~KG Stiles
Celtic Spirit, Various Artists Play samples on Amazon.com, read reviews and purchase!”This collection of music takes you to another time and place. It is an outstanding collection and a truly unforgettable listening experience. Its spiritual essence evokes warm moments of tranquil beauty and grace, transporting the soul. Connie Dover’s exquisite voice start this collection of Celtic inspired music and each song thereafter maintains her caliber of performance. Lilting melodies, haunting refrains, exquisite vocals all make “Celtic Spirit” a must-own addition for anyone who loves Celtic music, or enjoys the music of Enigma, Loreena McKennitt, and Enya. A magic carpet ride awaits when you listen to the sounds of this CD. Highly recommended!”
Amarantine, Enya Play samples on Amazon.com, read reviews and purchase!”From the first blanket of choral voices awash in reverb, Amarantine is instantly recognizable as a product of Enya, the Irish chanteuse who has created a genre unto herself. Although it’s been five years since her last CD, on Amarantine it’s as if time stood still. The triumvirate of Enya, lyricist Roma Ryan, and producer Nicky Ryan work the formula they perfected on Watermark, layering her voice in lush choirs pushed along by pizzicato synth strings, swooning orchestral pads, and harpsichord arpeggios. On tracks like “Less Than a Pearl” and “Drifting,” Enya flirts with a timeless sound born in gothic chants and hymns. The former is one of three songs that she sings in Roma Ryan’s fictitious language of Loxian. It seems to free her, especially on “The River Sings,” a veritable rave-up where she gets the tribal choir going in the style of Scottish mouth music. But to get there you have to slog through slo-mo ballads that manage to be dirge-like and singsong at the same time, like the Carpenters on Quaaludes. The relatively restrained arrangement of “It’s in the Rain” almost attains a folk-like simplicity that Enya hasn’t experienced since she sang with her siblings in Clannad a quarter-century ago. Amarantine sounds like it was born in cloistered solitude, self-referentially echoing Enya albums past.” ~ John Diliberto
“Enya’s first album in five years and she doesn’t disappoint. Her music on this CD is calmly refreshing, as well as uplifting. Her style is always exciting to listen to, yet at the same time soothes your heart and mind. Enya’s music always has angelic overtones and emotional refrains. Numerous fans consider this to be her best musical achievement to date!”
Celtic Woman, Celtic Woman Play samples on Amazon.com, read reviews and purchase!”Fueled by healthy public appetite for traditional melodies and quasi-ethnic roots, the crossover genre continues to flourish with this debut release from Ireland’s Celtic Woman ensemble. The brainchild of Sharon Browne, Dave Kavanaugh (founders of Ireland’s successful Celtic Collections label) and young Riverdance touring company musical director David Downes, CW’s five young women musicians and vocalists offer up an ever pleasant fusion of folk, pop and classical influences. A fresh blend of Celtic inspired music ~ easy listening at its very best! The ensemble tackles material that ranges from the expected (spare, lovely covers of “Danny Boy” and “Ave Maria”) to more adventurous fare like “Nella Fantasia” (Ennio Morricone’s vocal adaptation of his rapturous theme from The Mission) and Enya’s “Orinoco Flow.” Elsewhere, “The Butterfly” offers up fiddle-fueled take on their Riverdance parallels (which also get a workout on the live bonus tracks), if renditions of Downes’ originals like “One World” and “Send Me a Song” and “Someday” from Disney’s animated Hunchback of Notre Dame hew slavishly to the middle of the road — which largely seems the album’s easy-listening intention.” ~ Jerry McCulley
