5.0 out of 5 stars Tranquil and melodic April 10 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Soothing and peaceful instrumental refrains take you to a place of tranquility. This CD is perfect for a calming background to work, as an aid to meditation or massage, or nice to just relax with at the end of a stressful day.

4.0 out of 5 stars Low and slow April 14 2004
Format:Audio CD
A bit on the alto flute before I review the music here: the alto flute is a rather rare instrument--it's bent right before the joint of the head (mouthpiece) and the body of the flute--think how the pipe underneath your sink looks with that elbow bend and you can picture it. And it has a breathy sound plus a somewhat softer and less shrill upper register. The breathiness is due to the volume of air the player needs to push through the instrument. The bend is to accommodate the fact that flute players arms don't grow longer, but a lower note flute must be MUCH longer than the standard soprano.
The soft music on "Alto Flute Romances" is composed with a slow tempo to take advantage of the wind-in-a-cave sound of the flute. Perfect for slowing down, relaxing, calming oneself, or playing as a lullaby. Some of the pieces sound a bit alike, but they are all in a similar tempo which adds to the relaxation effect. The "Lavender Shadows" is my favorite on the entire CD. Very nice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended Jan. 29 2008
By Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The music on this CD is extraordinarily beautiful. The pieces are meditative and moving. We used this CD many years ago during labor when we had our first child. We lost it in a move and missed it so much we recently repurchased it. It is as lovely as we remembered.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT Jan. 27 2008

Excellent CD. I use it to relax my clients and all have commented how much they enjoy the ambient music as well. Very soothing! This artist is the best I've ever listened to.
3.0 out of 5 stars Different from The Yearning Dec 27 2012
By A. Witmer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I didn't like this album as much as The Yearning by Michael Hoppe. The music isn't as flowing and slow. Shouldn't compare, I know, but I loved The Yearning
