Karl Jenkin's wee project with Miriam Stockley produces orchestral world music. Most tracks follow the same formula of strings plus vocals with a concert hall sound quality, giving the album a fairly uniform feel (and this feel seems to be consistent over the other Adiemus albums as well, making them somewhat samey). "Adiemus", which I'd previously heard on Moods, is my favourite track and has a more studio feel. Overall it's a fairly laid back and relaxing album.
