Notes & Reviews:

Gentle classics for reading. Gentle music makes a perfect accompaniment to reading. This selection has been chosen with the reader in mind. Many of the tracks began life with a literary theme taken from old legends, Shakespeare's tales or famous books. These works are interspersed with other pieces which reflect a quiet mood or a scene from nature.
