In quiet moments, when your thoughts won’t let you fall asleep, play this music.

Alana Woods (harp) and Werner John (Native flutes, keyboard) have produced an exquisite example of the gentler musical arts. This 2007 recording features concert harp blending perfectly with deeper-pitched Native flutes, including the 1200 year old Anasizi flute. It’s a rich and evocative musical journey, transporting you gently into realms of serenity and sleep (digital, 55 min.).
