Brothers David and Steve Gordon specialize in relaxing music/nature recordings, and Sanctuary is one of their best. The two half-hour tracks (plus five-minute reprises) offer a luxurious balance of bird songs and gentle streams, with harps, flutes, angel voices, synthesizers. The melodies are present, yet abstract and not "intrusive" or distracting. The musical sanctuary is comforting, yet not too sweet. The perfect environment to relax into thoughts or let the gentle caresses of the music carry your worries away. This one will stand repeated playings to disappear in the background or as a vehicle for meditation.
