ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Peaceful relaxation and meditation music performed on the Celtic harp by master harpist, Paul Baker.

This one of a kind CD contains eight improvisations designed to soothe your spirit, ground your body and open and tune your mind.

Each improvisation correlates with a different chakra of the body and a chart with practical exercises is included.

Recorded in a temple in the Santa Monica mountains, the pure acoustic sound of "The Tranquil Harp" offers the best of body/mind/spirit integration technology with a musical format that uplifts and inspires.

The sound of the harp has not been enhanced with added reverb or effects so you hear the wonderful true harp sound interacting with the building's acoustics. Grammy nominated recording engineer Fred Vogler engineered the recording and mastering sessions.

Relaxing, unobtrusive, a little tinny sounding but not annoying
Rather unimaginative, pleasant, rather "plunky" sounding harp music that definitely relaxed me within a minute or so of hearing it. There is nothing in the music to distract you from doing your work, relaxation, visualization or other activities while listening to it, which is good for those seeking music that fosters tranquility. Not bad!

Really lovely cd and very soothing. Excellent musician !
Anyone in search of a "tranquilizer" need only to listen to this calming and very restful cd. I highly recommend it for insomniacs or restless children.

Calliope

I love it
I first heard it during a meditation class, and fall in love with this CD. I bought Paul Barker's The ladder of soul as well, i think that one is as great!!!

Patricia Schneider

Excellent!!!
The Tranquil Harp is a CD that I have recommended to many
people to use for stress release, meditation, cleansing and
healing. Paul Baker has provided a beautiful resource for all of the above. I use The Ladder of the Soul as well and am
grateful for his talent.

What a great recording! Paul Baker's improvisations are flawless
Paul Baker's Tranquil Harp is peaceful and inspiring. I use it for my own enjoyment, but also give it for baby gifts. Our local hospital uses it with preemie babies, and both babies & staff love it. Great recording!

The Vibration of the Harp Opens One to Expansion
This is one of the best recordings I have heard that
truly supports the idea of opening up and expanding during
meditation and relaxation. The best way to experience
this is to listen to the entire CD. With each selection the
expansion is more progressive. It will comfort the entire
household, including animals. The three dogs in my home are
on their backs with feet in the air half way through this
CD.

Consummate musicianship in the service of the spirit.
Sometimes we long to disconnect from the noisy, stressful world around us. This recording takes a different approach: rather than escape, it gently urges you to connect with your inner self, and bring the strength and serenity thus tapped back into the clamoring world, making it warmer, softer and more open for you and everyone you encounter. Oh yes -- and the music is ravishing.

M. Dolan

Your CDs play on my computer at work. Peace & serenity envelope my space.
I hope you will create many more of these high quality recordings.

Add calm to your life
This CD is one of my personal favorites. I have listened to it for hours. One particularly stressful day, I put it on "repeat" and played it the whole day. It sounded fresh and new to me for 8 straight hours. My daughter has also listened to it many, many times as her bedtime music. It helps her relax and have good dreams.

"Tranquil Harp" is also fabulous for any office environment where a calm atmosphere is needed. I used to work in a doctor's office and it was the favorite CD for the doctor and the patients who came for acupuncture or consultation. The music didn't interfere with conversation or talking on the phone, and at the same time sounded so clear that it felt like Paul was there playing it for us.

Make your drive so much better
Stuck in traffic on the freeway? Pop this CD into your player and dive into a stream of soothing sound. Whether your attention is on the traffic or you are dreaming while driving, this music will allow you to stay calm, and arrive in a positive frame of mind. It's great while just sitting and reading too!
