AllMusic Review by

The felicitous pairing of piano and hammered dulcimer has produced an album of soft, vibrant, listener-friendly music. Donna Michael's capable piano provides the warm sustaining tones that Lee complements with the dulcimer's brighter mode. The addition of English and French horns, cello, violin, bass and a cut of solo guitar fill out the album's sound. The title and inspiration for this music comes from the duo's desire to find a special beauty in the darkest experiences.
