The set list here is pretty typical for classical-themed relaxation records, but then again the melodies of Pachelbel's Canon, Vivaldi's Four Seasons, or Bach's Air on a G String (no jokes!) are some of the most enduring in the history of western civilization. Most Relaxing Classics won't offer listeners any more than its contemporaries, but as standard classical crossover fare, it's positively beatific.
