 Peacful yet very moving May 16, 2015 By Reid D. (San Francisco, CA) See All My Reviews "While driving, I was listening to KCSM Jazz 91.1 and that’s when I first heard Caccini’s “Ave Maria” performed by Julian Lloyd Webber & James Judd. When I found it on the song list, I immediately ordered this CD. I was surprised to find this music on a CD entitled, “Healing.” That certainly seemed like a bonus! When I heard the entire CD, I was so impressed with not only the excellent compilation of some of the finest composers but the quality of the musicians’ performances on each track. As a bonus, one of my all-time favorite pieces, Chopin’s Nocturne in E-flat, Op.9 No.2, is also on the CD, and it’s just the best! I was absolutely stirred by the music as it feels to have a majestic quality, and it seems to take me away from all the cares and concerns of the day!" Report Abuse
