5.0 out of 5 stars A Break From Your Music August 29, 2008
This compilation is a soothing, relaxing getaway from the normal grind of todays music. It has a blend of choral, christian type music...it will put you in that mood when you just want some piece. I've added these tracks to my iTouch and will enjoy it always. I really think that this type of music expands your mind, and lets you melt away, and as a firefighter it gives me that chance to think about other more positive things than the pain that I see on a daily basis! Great Job Amazon!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff July 4, 2008
This is a wonderful sampler of early music similar to the Waverly Consort and the choral work of Vox Populi. It's lush, soothing & evocative. Thanks for the variety, Amazon!

I am not a classical music expert, and barely know this style of music at all or what it's called. but I love it. As the title states Amazon was giving this way for free, and to be honest I did not expect much. I was blown away with the quality of the recording. Thanks for such a great freebie, it has led to other purchases and expanded my musical horizon quite a bit.

5.0 out of 5 stars The very best, indeed May 30, 2009
Verified Purchase
If you ask me, this reprsents the very best of Naxos Early Music and the very best of Amazon MP3 samplers. Naxos is one of my favorite labels (although "label" is probably no longer the best terminology), for making available high quality music at decent prices. This download is a real treat, and I can't describe how wonderful it is to hear this early music when I'm riding on the subway. Good on Naxos, good on Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful introduction to early music January 5, 2010
Verified Purchase
Listen to the music than inspired Mozart and Beethoven. This sampler is a great introduction to early music. And for readers younger than 30, I don't mean the 1950s-- ha ha ;) Seriously, this is a wonderful collection of songs from the Naxos label. It's been years since I've taken music appreciation, but I believe the era would be best classified as pre-baroque choral music, which was strongly influenced by Christian themes. The music is calming and relaxing and written in the 15-16th centuries. Not bad for stuff half a millenium old. Of course, one of the best things about this sampler is the price: FREE! If you like classical music, then this is a must have for your collection. C'mon, you can afford it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good intro to early music. October 27, 2009
This is definitely an album worth listening to. It has a good combination of scared and secular music. The chants are very soothing, which is perfect for when I'm reading.
