AllMusic Review by

The Ultimate Relaxation Album features over one hour of the most relaxing music ever written. Included are segments of compositions by well-known classical composers such as Bach, Vivaldi, Fauré, Pachelbel, Warlock, Anon, Satie, Rachmaninoff, Borodin, and Mozart. The compositions are performed by a variety of orchestras, the BBC Concert Orchestra being just one of the featured performers. A second volume followed.
