In this modern-day, fast-paced, ever-changing world, find a moment of calm and peace with this sublime collection. The music in this 2CD set is drawn from composers such as Arvo Pärt, John Tavener and Henryk Górecki; all are musicians with a deep sense of spirituality and appreciation for the healing qualities of art. A perfect gift for a stressed-out friend, or perhaps you are looking for something to lift your own spirits and allow you to focus on something positive and beautiful.
