REVIEW

This CD really surprised me. Based on the previous Camerata title "Anthology of vox principal works", I didn't think I'd like this CD. Instead I enjoyed it very much. Don't expect any heavy marches here. This CD is basically laid back classical type music with traditional Japanese music overtones. I think I enjoyed this CD more than "Anthology of vox principal works" because there was very little in the way of vocals on this CD. It was mainly just enjoyable, relaxing, music.
