Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Searching for the divine by dawn's early light, pianist/keyboardist Bill Douglas uses his eighth recording to create a gentle paean to the natural beauty of morning and the intangibles of purity and promise that float in on daybreak's first sunbeams. Again employing the rapturous talents of the Denver-based Ars Nova Singers, Douglas composes a calming program anchored by the group's reverential choral passages (featured on seven of the disc's 13 tracks). Douglas's instrumental works (with random guest performances on violin, cello, oboe, clarinet, flute, light percussion, and his own bassoon) create a meditative, jazz-tinged chamber sound. Ultimately, these pieces serve as modest interludes between the more riveting choral sections. Lyrical content comes from an assortment of verse (W.B. Yeats, Emily Dickinson, the Bible's Song of Solomon) and extols the peacefulness and magical quality of early morning, though the words (unrecognizable without the lyric sheet) are secondary to the cathedral-like resonance the group puts forth. Highlights include the opening track, the heavenly, wordless rumination of "Tara," the worshipful/celebratory "Lovely Is the Rose," and the title track, a captivating take on Dickinson's verse. --Terry Wood

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Soother! July 18, 2001
Format:Audio CD
With his latest release, Bill Douglas once again defies all imagination w/ this beautiful cd. As in past recordings, he is again accompained on several songs w/ the Ars Nova Singers. He is also accompained w/ various instruments such as clarinet, cello, oboe, flute, violin, frame drum and cymbals. Douglas himself plays piano, bassoon, and synthesizers. The alternative flow of chorals & instrumentals is very soothing. If you aren't familiar w/ the music of Bill Douglas, you are in for a treat in purchasing this or any other of his wonderful cd's. In this particular cd, he takes the poetry of W.B. Yeats, Emily Dickenson, Rachel Faro and an excert from the Bibles' Song of Soloman and arranges them into song. On previous other works, he has used a variety of other poets. His music is so breathtaking and so beautiful, it is the ultimate in serenity. If you are looking for some music to relax with, you've come to the right place. But don't mistake this for 'some New Age stuff' that comes and goes. It is certainly much more than that and you'd have to hear it to truly understand and appreciate it. What incredible God-given talent Douglas has! I know of no other artist who can take a simple poem and arrange it musically, so that you feel overwhelmed with it's beauty. What a masterful idea to combine poetry and music! I have a chronic illness, so serentiy is a must in dealing w/ things. One way I do that is through his music, which is my favorite to unwind & relax with. This would make a really great gift for yourself or anyone in your life, who is under alot of stress. Deep Peace is another good cd. If you're looking for a compilation of some of his work, try Eternity's Sunrise. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars The Title Says It All August 15, 2001
Format:Audio CD
If you feel your soul needs to be washed with sweet, soft and velvety music, this is the CD for you. There is a general warmth that comes through all the pieces. One of the few CD's that make you feel safe and warm and cozy.
Highly recommended for that cold rainy afternoon when you want to be wrapped up in your favorite blanket in the softest fabric sipping hot chocolate. Or, if you find yourself waking up at night due to a terrible nightmare. Turn this on and let it coo you to a feeling of security and comfort.

If you have ever listened to Bill Douglas then you know the emotional feeling he can give you. Being fortunate enough to play his music, he sends you to places that are as breathtaking as one can imagine. All I can say is Bill Douglas makes me appreciate music, he takes my love of music to another level.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stressbuster music, it's all peace and harmony! May 26, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Bill Douglas's new release "A Place Called Morning" lives up to the title. Serene and relaxing music -- all new compositions -- very uplifting and stress reducing, his best since "Songs of Sky and Earth". I play Mr. Douglas's CDs especially "Songs" and now "Morning" included after a stressful day at work. His magical piano and basson playing accompanied by highly accomplished musicians on flute, clarinet and percussion with the choral group Ars Nova Singers work like therapy to the tired mind. Also, if your a fan of the poetry of Emily Dickson and W.B. Yeats, you're in for a special treat as Douglas has set selected poems of the poets into songs! Just wonderful! As a keen keyboard music fan, I thought only Bach's, Mozart's, and Chopin's keyboard music worked for me. Now, I have added Bill Douglas's music to the list. This CD is highly recommended.

This music is some of the best of its genre. It is just achingly beautiful.I happened upon this CD while searching for some new music,and bought this on the chance that I would like it.I love it.It lulls you into recalling your fondest memories of childhood and love, and does it effortlessly and simply.The choir is especially effective.It actually chokes me up a little.
I'm not a huge fan of New Age music,but of the CD's I do have,I believe this is the best.

4.0 out of 5 stars very nice stuff July 8, 2006
By capo
Format:Audio CD
I stumbled upon Bill Douglas' music in a compilation CD I had playing as background music for my day. One track caught my ear and demanded greater attention - it was "Lake Isle Of Innisfree" by Bill Douglas. After locating and auditioning "A Place Called Morning", on which the track originally appeared, I added it to my music collection and am enjoying it as I write this. Music is not an either-or thing - if you enjoy John Williams, John Horner or Beethoven or the Beatles - listen to them all. If it touches your soul here and now, what more do you want? "A Place Called Morning" is just such music for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is it. May 24, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
For those looking for music (Bach, Rutter, Enya, Secret Garden, Clannad, Ackerman) that they can rest their souls in; look no further. This is beautiful. The instrumentals uplift and the choral arrangements are transcendent. A must have.
