Last week was a tough one, so I’m going for maximum relaxation and blood pressure reduction.
“Paulistana #1″ was composed by Claudio Santoro (1919-1989), and is one of my favorite pieces of music. My only complaint about it is that it’s so short.
“The Vanished Gardens of Cordoba” is by Ray Lynch. Most of his music is strange in a New-Agey-hippy-dippy kind of way, but beautiful. This one is a little more accessible I think, and is accompanied by some really gorgeous photography which is as calming as the music.
Plus, a bonus track for those who like a cappella: Steeleye Span.
