This collaboration between healing-music artist Steven Halpern and harpist Georgia Kelly is a pleasant exercise in aimless musings that relax the soul and clear the mind. Halpern, long recognized for his educational work with New Age music, brings a starry Rhodes electric piano and synth to Kelly’s swirling, gentle harp as the two try to recreate the ancient ritual of spiritual healing through music. While Halpern’s electric piano may be a bit too drippy-dreamy, his synth is expansive and forms a soulful background for Kelly’s plucking. “The Oracle at Delphi” stands out for its droning effect and hint of Muslim chant while “From Eleusis” attracts with a melodious flute sound. Halpern and Kelly create a relaxed atmosphere that, in the hands of these two experienced New Age artists, is enchanting.  Special thanks to Lady Jane Wensleydale.  She is the one that provided this wonderful album.
