By B. Marold HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on December 15, 2005
Format: Audio CD
'shining light' performed by Sequentia, the Ensemble for medieval music, is an excellent collection, running for over 70 minutes, of fragments of instrumental music and vocal music in Latin from monasteries in and around the southwestern French city of Limoges.

While this may not rate five stars as an academic piece, it is certainly worth the ranking as music easy on the ears, combining instrumental, male, and female choral music.

I wlll let the scholars fight it out. I simply find it an excellent collection of early music performances.

Along with their other Christmas CD called Aquitania, Shining Light is also full-packed with medieval Latin Christmas songs with another generous 73 minutes of play. This is simply the follow-up of the other Sequentia's Christmas CD. Both CDs are accompanied by sung texts and english translations. At Amazon's price, do yourself a favor and get both at once. These are ideal Christmas gifts for you and those you love.

This disc is so beautiful, so full majesty and spirituality. It can quiet the stress and bring sweet comfort. The Sequentia singers so clean-sounding. Their voices have never sounded so pure, like the running of the streams. The chasms of the earth and the sea would be moved to the sounds.
