Sacred Visions

Sacred Visions

Peter Sterling

Harp Magic Music

Harpist Peter Sterling (also keyboards, loops, percussion, ocarina, and recorder) ups the musical energy level on Sacred Visions, infusing his fluid melodies with healthy doses of world-beat influences, tasty but mellow grooves, and occasional side orders of chill and jazz. Frequent collaborator Richard Hardy (sax, flute, pennywhistle) and cellist Hans Christian, among others, lend their talents to the album. Track five, “Eclipse,” features notable players, including pioneering guitarist Bruce BecVar and New Age/jazz-fusion legend William Aura (leader of Third Force). Lighthearted in the best sense of the world, the album is a treat for the ears and the soul.
