Christine Magnussen is a therapeutic harpist who received recognition on National Public Radio's "E-Town" for her work as the Founding Director of the ACCHORD Music Access Project which provides therapeutic music to the elderly, ill and at-risk youth.
Music and healing educator, Don Campbell, says that "music can uplift our soul. It awakens within us the spirit of prayer, compassion and love.. it can boost the immune function by oxygenating cells, can generate a sense of safety and well-being." The Journal of the American Medical Association indicates that "music provides a distraction from pain and relieves anxiety."
"In my moments of anxiety and stress, music has soothed me. I have found that peaceful place inside of me with the help of "On Wings of a Dove." I can't tell you how much this music has comforted me during stressful days."
---Alice Stamm, Founder, www.power-surge.com, menopause website
This recording begins with a gentle splash of "Water Spirit" which progressively leads the listener into a deep alpha state of relaxation. A mix of solo harp and piano sprinkle the soothing atmosphere of comforting pieces. The meditative qualities of medieval "Dehors Lonc Pre" and "Chanson" are complemented by the final affirming hope of "Quiet Evening."
"On Wings Of A Dove" is designed to be a gift of love for you or someone you care about, to provide comfort in times of grief, illness or personal stress. It is an ideal complement for massage or medical treatments or at the bedside of a loved one.
