Familiar Spirit Ethereal, transcendent, and beautiful. At once eternal and ephemeral.

Ali Khan Sarah’s music is an inspiration to my artist self. She’s a master of restraint, balancing timbres on that lovely edge between silence and minimal vibration. Favorite track: Gold Upon White.

literally Turns out my being a lapsed catholic manifests itself in deeply connecting with ambient music played on organs. Who knew.

Anyway, this album is stunningly beautiful and calming.

Stuart Maxwell This is an album I have dreamed of for decades. I've experimented with this kind of sustained harmonic shifting and drone but never come close. This is what organs are built for but very few composers have the courage to explore the unique possibilities they create. Thank you Sarah for a remarkable piece of work that will stay with me always.

Robert Day Shock! What's this? Lyrics?
Sarah Davachi delivers up calm again, but with some words too this time. Favorite track: Ruminant.
