New CD out this month…..

Helen Habershon FITR

The composer of the 12 “songs without words” on this album,  Helen Habershon,  has described her music as “a reflection the natural world that we live in and the world from which we originate”. Hers is a delicate and beautiful sound-world and although this is the first time her music has been recorded, Classic FM have immediately taken note and broadcast several of the tracks regularly. One of the reviewers on amazon.co.uk went so far as to say “If I was stranded on a desert island this is the album I would want to have with me. Buy it now!”
