I ordered this CD simply after having listened to the selection entitled "Anahid" on public radio. Don't be dismayed when you listen to the title piece; "And God Created Great Whales" is totally out of context with the rest of the CD. The remaining hour of music is a breathtaking performance of strings and flute that ranges from pastoral to incredibly uplifting. Admittedly a classical neophyte, I don't have the vocabulary to review this work properly - you just have to buy this CD and hear for yourself. Absolutely wonderful!

For me (a Neophyte also), it was the "Concerto for Orchestra No 8" on public radio...
30 seconds into the Andante, it had got my attention; 30 seconds into the Moderato, it had lifted me; 30 seconds into the 2nd Andante, I was sure I wanted the CD.
I wasn't disappointed. Give it a listen.

Alan Hovhaness has created some very exquisite music; but this "And God Created GReat Whales" is awesome; with the sounds of the great whales mixed in with the orchestral sounds.

There appears to be something wrong with this Web page. "Perry Mason In East Germany"? "Borrowing and Stealing"? "Whackers"? "Hot Pig"? These aren't the titles of anything by Alan Hovhaness. The music appears to be from Alan Hovhaness, but there's something wrong with those titles.
