“I can honestly say that this is one of my favourite CDs. Profoundly beautiful, the music is both comforting and uplifting, and never fails to take me to another place. The balance of instrumental and vocal passages is exquisite and the quality of sound faultless. Track 14 is especially sublime. On two occasions, visitors have stopped the conversation to listen more attentively – both times, they went home with my copy and I happily re-purchased!”                                                               Mrs M S (Devon)


“Just a note to say how much we both love the disc. I am listening to it now, a perfect background to a Sunday afternoon, and though I’ve heard it a few times now, I feel as if I am still getting to know it.  It is so beautiful as a whole, such peace it gives, and also such emotion….. Thank you so much for introducing the disc to us, the peacefulness of the music is just perfect for us both; it’s what we strive to feel in our busy lives, when we are dealing with work, and family issues. You could not have given us anything better.”                                                                                                           Mr and Mrs A S (Devon)


“I recently got your CD and just wanna say that it’s one of the best I’ve ever listened to in my life. The music is so beautiful! It has become a great addition to my music collection. Thank you very much and God Bless You!”.                                                                                                  Mr O P (Fort Lauderdale, USA)


“Congratulations on a fine musical product. Far Above a Midnight Sky  is everything John Rutter bestowed on it: beguiling, haunting, and tinged with nostalgia”                                      Mr R B (Norway)



“Beautiful relaxing music: I find it the perfect accompaniment to my treatments, and my clients are loving the combination of therapeutic massage and haunting melody”                                                                                          Mrs Suzy Carter (reflexologist, West Sussex)                                                                                                             


“I feel I have come across a bit of heaven in your music….it really touched my heart. We lived for many years in Hampshire and have only just come across the border to West Sussex…so all in the South Downs still. When we drive to Winchester the views of the rolling Downs are breath-taking so one can see whence you draw your inspiration. How gifted you all are. Thank you for bringing musical joy into our lives”.                                                                                                                          Mrs A J (West Sussex)

“Thank you so much for sending me this heavenly CD which I am listening to now; it’s absolutely exquisite, and just my kind of music. I’m finding that as I go about, the tunes linger in my head and I find myself humming away which is lovely. It is also one of those albums which you can really enjoy from beginning to end – something one doesn’t often find”.                                        Mrs C H (Surrey)

” I have at long last been able to sit down and listen to the CD a few times and I just wanted to say what a treat it has been; I can’t tell you how much I have enjoyed it. The tracks themselves are beautifully written, and to have enlisted the support of so many talented performers is amazing. Crowning it all is the wonderful John Wilson Orchestra in those fabulous orchestral arrangements, especially those featuring Craig Ogden. All in all a really beautiful disc and one which I am so pleased to have come across”.                                                                                                                                      Mr D C (London)

"I love it all... so start the CD, surrender, let your eyes mist over when no one is looking, but maybe, with such a gorgeous box of musical chocolates on your CD player, savour a few tracks at a time rather than gobble it all at once"

John Rutter
