Notes & Reviews:

"...To cast it in the most generalized terms, Hovhaness's music is informed by a rapt spirituality, and a multicultural ecumenism that forces all but the most hardened of us to think beyond our momentary boxes... The songs on this release are simple and straightforward, perilously close to being naive - a naivete that reveals nothing short of profound wisdom... Both Hovhaness's and Berberian's contributions are inimitable, and deserve to be preserved at all costs." -Zagorski, Fanfare
