From the Cradle to the Grave and everything in between. You will know this musica as soon as you hear it, so natural is it's composition.

- Well of Souls
The Well of Souls Requiem is based in part on the classical form of Mass for the Dead. This work of Art transends religions evoking feelings of Love and Hope in our passing, instead of Fear and Judgement. Although the composers personal interpretation of the journey through death, this music is as much a celebration of LiFE.
The EAGLEs PRECiOUS GiFT is LiFE, the place from which the Requiem unfolds. Like Water, the the Spirit is drawn from the Well of Souls to experience LiFE's moments of Ecstacy and Despair. Performed by Nigel Shaw and Carolyn Hillyer, this album faces up to the the Infinite and Eternal moving between light and dark on the quest for the Spirit of Eden.
of the Forgotten People
A long river of time has passed since the Anciant Clans of the Amber and Copper people walked the lands.
They built with stone and worked with bone. They sung to the wonder of Life, their footprints fitting our Earth well.
This excellent interpretation of ancient times and people represents a true inner spiritual excursion by co-writters and performers Nigel Shaw and Carolyn Hillyer. Together they have pushed musical boundries combining original and haunting song composition with an unusual and varied texture of musical instrumentation.
The River is a Musical Journey flowing through 4 main movements. Each has it's own distinct landscape of Space & Texture. The River gently carries the listener on a journey of Relaxation & Healing.

A Great Foreat once rolled in vast unbounded waves across the old land. An immense changing sea of damp shadow & Green light.
The roots of this Album are natural recordings of Forest Sounds & Birdsong from surviving Ancient woodlands in olde England.
This is a beautiful and dynamic recarding thats reflects aspects of the sacred landscape both without, & within. The seven movements are each a key for entry into the cycle of life, each representing a foundation stone of our nature.
The sacred seven movements are Gateway, Birth, Hearth, Broken, Altar, Dreaming and Sanctus. Like all the Ethnic Music featured on this page, this CD captures a true Ancient & Spiritual Atmosphere that is hard to find in todays shallow popular music.
The Seventh Wave evokes the Spirit of the ever-changing colour and timeless power of the oceans.

The music from the House of the Seventh Wave is genuinely magickal and is most certainly a cut above the other releases associated with Enchanted Musick.
