Jay Bacal

Shadows of the Soul
Great writing and haunting instrumentation. This music is dark, rich and bittersweet like a fine chocolat. But this music is food for the soul. Play it in the late night hours and savor the delicious mood of melancholy. Highly recommended.

Guy de Broglia

Haunting is given a new definition
"Shadows of the Soul" is a rich, diverse album, a collection of brilliant melodies executed with precision to yield a mystic, sometimes disturbing poem. As is typically the case with Kersten's music, these various compositions recall images, as though from some forgotten past, fleeting and conjured out of the private imagination, which only that listener can know. And yet, while "Shadows of the Soul" summons phantasms at once individually conceived, it also draws on archetypes as though Carl Gustav Jung himself directed the orchestra. Here is the eerie Neo-Romanticism of a new turn of the century at its best. Kersten always delights, and "Shadows of the Soul," complex and evocative, is no exception.

Shadows of the Soul
William Kirsten is one of the original Composers of today. He can write for motion pictures and for serious music. This album is a compilation of an emotional score gathered in one batch. Kirsten is very interesting to any composer. I always listen to any of his works, not only is it educational but timeless. Kirsten is very up in up on any digital programing also. His experience in using multiple types of samples is always something to learn and borrow from.

Shadows of the Soul
If you like lyrical, sometimes sombre music to listen to alone, especially late into the night then this album is for you. Just click onto Shadows of the Soul (2) and you'll see what I mean. A very well produced sounding album it won't disappoint.
