There are some CDs that sneak up and surprise the average listener. They cause the listener to ask, "Why didn't I have this disc sooner?" Spirit of the Zither by the Carmelite Nun of Luçon is such a CD. The inherent qualities of the zither ensure full-bodied atmospheres and grand soundscapes. The Nun's technique is flawless. She uses those inherent qualities to build drones. She builds bright melodies and vibrant harmonies on top of the drones. She injects joy and spirituality into every note of the album. This essential CD will appeal to fans of Laraaji.
