The music on this album inspires contemplation, opens the heart and brings peace and joy. The simple, gentle playing of the clarinet, the profound harmonies and movements of the guitar, the holy and enlightened melodies of great masters and righteous people combine to transport listeners to higher consciousness.
The order of the melodies is aligned with the Jewish order of prayers (the siddur) and the album comes with a beautiful booklet describing the contemplative stages towards intimacy with the Divine which this order provides (the booklet is available for purchasers as a separate PDF download via firstname.lastname@example.org). Jews and non-Jews have found much inspiration in listening to this music and is appropriate to people of all faiths.
