Def: Catharisis, the purifying or relieving of the emotions through dramatic art.  (from the Greek: katharsis, mean purification) - Webster's Dictionary 

This music has been very powerful in releasing me from pain and suffering and allowing me to know again the feelings of joy.

Many people tell me that they too feel great "Catharsis" on hearing this music.  May your experiences be as freeing and enlightening as mine. 
Much love to you all,
Malcolm Watson

Canon in D

(Pachebel) 4:11  Timeless is certainly a word which applies to this classic.  Written in the late 1600's, the Canon sounds as fresh today as it did 300 years ago.

(Aguado/Giuliano) 3:15  A bit of cut and paste was involved in this flashy medley of two pieces by the Italian Romantics Aguado and Giuliano.  The Spanish allusion at the start was our idea.
