AllMusic Review by

The timelessness of Pachelbel's "Canon in D" has been well-documented and possibly even oversaturated during the past decade. Experience with this piece has shown conclusively that music has the power to calm, satisfy and uplift the human body and mind. Also heard is Erik Satie's charming and mysterious "Three Gymnopedies." Both pieces add the refreshing sounds of ocean surf, combined with the music in a subtle balance that soothes heart and soul. Each piece is heard for around 30 minutes on this newly issued CD, which allows ample time for the musicians to explore these tranquil and gently healing melodies.
