5 stars Many will wish to avoid an album performed exclusively on the pipe organ but as a lover of classical music and symphonic prog I was intrigued. It is pretty rare to come across extensive use of the pipe organ in prog music - the last that did that I recall was the excellent Hymnarium by Resonaxis, an interesting Australian prog band. This is very different as it has no vocals and is less obviously a rock album of songs and more a body of work. It is quite remarkable as an album and I found it compelling as first I decided to buy it and then listened to it on repeat over and over again. Anna Von Hausswoulff is a fine composer of melodies which are often minimalist but draw you in as they develop. There are some extraordinary sound effects on tracks such as Sacro Bosco where a deep rhythmic vibration forms the basis of the track. Unlike anything I have heard this year. A fine album worthy of five stars.
