There are, quite literally, hundreds of CDs with Australian themes, timbres, overtones, and/or textures. Many of them are performed by Aborigines. Terry Oldfield, one of the most diverse multi-instrumentalists of all time, has created "tribute" CDs for many cultures. Australia: Twilight of the Dreamtime is a deep blend of sonic treasures built largely on acoustic and ethnic instruments. Oldfield plays all of the instruments except for the didjeridu; Glenn Childs fills that role quite capably. This CD is deep, atmospheric, and subtle. It will appeal to fans of Nomad, David Hudson, Gary Thomas, and Stephen Kent.
