Sanctum Sanctuorum is Constance Demby's companion to Faces of the Christ. She built this set from the basics of that CD. She makes it quite clear that this deep space music is intended for meditation and introspection. The soundscapes just reach out and grab listeners. The gentle orchestral tones, Gregorian chant samples, and Demby's own wordless vocals create a cushion that allows listeners to enter a trance-like state of being. It becomes an alternate awareness. Within that state, deep listeners see more clearly. The journey leads to increased spiritual and emotional well-being. This CD will appeal to fans of Steven Halpern, Suzanne Ciani, Paul Sauvanet, and Diane Arkenstone. It is essential for new age and space music fans.
