Oliver Schroer, an intriguing musical figure indeed, recorded this music in churches while on a 1000 mile journey through the Camino de Santiago pilgrim trail. The music is beatiful and ambient. This recording features solo violin, though there are backgrounds of church bells, birds, and monastic voices. Unfortunately Mr. Schroer is no longer with us, though is legacy will live on in this recording.
What a CD! What a fantastic player and improvisor! Schroer's keen sense of the vilin and innate technique make his twists, turns, and improvisations almost effortless. This is a wonderful CD to drive, walk, or relax to. It is almost otherworldly in its beauty. This recording cannot be praised enough!
