Some of the most sublime music you’ve never heard.

Say “adios” to the same old adagios you typically find on serenity-themed CDs of contemplative classical music.

This new disc of calming classics, drawn from 16 different, acclaimed CDs in the Cedille Records catalog, consists of rare gems of relaxing classical music, ranging from symphony and concerto movements to solo piano, choral, and chamber works. Included are the slow movement of a violin concerto by a Black contemporary of Mozart and numerous works by “Romantic” American composers.
