What's the music that makes you swoon? The sounds that make your world stand still? For 20 year, ABC Classic FM's Breakfast show has featured a daily 'Swoon', and each morinngs listeners across the country look forward to this 'little parcel of rapture' - a chance to shut out the noise and busyness of everyday life and drink in the loveliness of pure music. Over the past two decades, the Swoon phenomenon has touched the lives of millions of Australians with moments of musical bliss.

When ABC Classics FM asked listeners to mominate their favourite Swoons, they were quick to respond, eager to share their musical treasures. This album represents the results of that survey.
