AllMusic Review by

This album is inspired by Richard Shulman's experience of Assisi, Italy, where he spent some time with a meditation group in 1988. He returned to Assisi a year later with his synthesizer and computer, determined to express the feelings of Divine Love that he felt pervading this holy place. The musical results are infused with a sacred feeling of peace and contentment. Synthesized strings set much of the mood and the compositions have a strong resemblance to the slow movements of Bach organ preludes. The liner notes are extensive and describe the inspiration behind each of the eleven pieces. If The Fairy Ring is your cup of tea, then you will enjoy this sacred brew.
