5.0 out of 5 stars Give us more, Rufus!, Feb. 19 2001
Like so many listeners sharing their thoughts, this CD almost magically resurfaces in my CD player every few months. And always at a time when I feel like I need to hear music that helps me feel both relaxed and understood.
The complexity of his orchestration, blended with his elegant melodies and vocalization, escort you, arm in arm with the musician, down the boardwalk of your very own mind. His lyrics never grow tedious, and always invite you to feel something new.
Hildegard von Bingen: Canticles of Ecstasy ~ Sequentia

This is truly a wonderful recording. Whether used as mood music for backdrop or as an intense meditative tool, it demands as much or as little from the listener as he or she wants to give. No bleak penance music here, Hildegard has the gift of creating absolutely beautiful music that is surprisingly uplifting in the face of its gothic simplicity. And Sequentia handles the material exquisitely, allowing space where space need be and filling the tune with tones that will resound through every atom of your being.
