I can’t remember the last time I heard a good Estonian vocal ensemble! My Aunt Julia provides a rare opportunity to experience six expert vocalists from Estonia create heart-stilling harmonies based on meditative, monastic-sounding early sacred music and Estonian folk hymns. The effect on me is simultaneously simple and complex, the apparent simplicity of voices mixing at a steady pace calming me enough to open me up to the reality that the music being created is full of minute detail and effects that seem beyond human voices.

I can’t remember either, which is why you should provide your readers with a link to their simple sounds 8^)
Glad you & Ann are enjoying VT! It’s a state I have yet to visit.
Good idea! A nice sample loads automatically on their website.
Interesting, I think I need to listen to more music like that…I’m much too wound up. Thanks!
