Add a rich overlay of strings, the deep tonal qualities of woodwinds, traditional Celtic and early music instruments and this album will take you into the light.

"This latest offering of Maggie Sansone reiterates her sensitive, innovative ability on the hammered dulcimer. Backed by an accomplished lineup of musicians, she presents a collection of lovely gentle tunes whose themes range from Celtic mythology to medieval, to contemporary. This album is marvelously calming, reflective, lovely collection of tunes played delicately and artfully by first rate artists."

"Wonderful CD. Very well paced. Livelier than some CD's often used in healing arts and massage which can lull the therapist into a "near-zombie" state after a few listens. This one is very soothing and pleasant, enjoyed by myself and my clients. it's a recording I could easily listen to every day."
