The music on this meditative disc was composed and arranged by Daniel May, and focuses on the sound of the cello, played by Dan Gibson, with gentle piano and acoustic guitar accompaniment. With nature sounds (birds singing, rain falling, brooks running) edited in, Forest Cello attempts to re-create the feel of a walk through an autumn woods, and to a large degree it does, although it doesn't include the sound of those late-season mosquitoes and deer flies. And what the heck are those birds doing singing spring songs like that in the fall?
