Far Above A Midnight Sky is a CD I have previously released, and below are just some of the comments about it:
"I love it all... so start the CD, surrender, let your eyes mist over when no one is looking, but maybe, with such a gorgeous box of musical chocolates on your CD player, savour a few tracks at a time rather than gobble it all at once"
- John Rutter
“I recently got your CD and just wanna say that it’s one of the best I’ve ever listened to in my life. The music is so beautiful! It has become a great addition to my music collection. Thank you very much and God Bless You!”.

“Beautiful relaxing music: I find it the perfect accompaniment to my treatments, and my clients are loving the combination of therapeutic massage and haunting melody”
- Mrs Suzy Carter (West Sussex)
“I feel I have come across a bit of heaven in your music….it really touched my heart. We lived for many years in Hampshire and have only just come across the border to West Sussex…so all in the South Downs still. When we drive to Winchester the views of the rolling Downs are breath-taking so one can see whence you draw your inspiration. How gifted you all are. Thank you for bringing musical joy into our lives."
- Mrs A J (West Sussex)
“We are really delighted with the music and I can only agree with the comments of John Rutter”.
- Dr J E (Hampshire)

“Thank you so much for sending me this heavenly CD which I am listening to now; it’s absolutely exquisite, and just my kind of music. I’m finding that as I go about, the tunes linger in my head and I find myself humming away which is lovely. It is also one of those albums which you can really enjoy from beginning to end – something one doesn’t often find”.
- Mrs C H (Surrey)
