AllMusic Review by

Love & Peace is a set of 12 romantic serenades from Lisa Lynne Franco (Celtic harp) and George Tortorelli (bamboo flute). They co-wrote and co-produced all of these pieces. As there are only two instruments involved, they share the spotlight equally. Franco's style has never been more graceful. Her harp intertwines with Tortorelli's flute and the atmospheres become psychoactive clouds of serotonin stimuli. It is unlikely that this duo intended to create this kind of healing music. "We hope this music brings...love and peace." That appears to be the purpose -- simple, elegant, and soulful relaxation. They have, however, created a holistic meditation soundscape that ranks with anything from Klaus Wiese, Dean Evenson, Deborah Van Dyke, and Riley Lee. The styles are completely different, but the effect is identical. This is essential acoustic ambience.
