Dear Mr. Barks,
The day I heard you speak at Frostburg State University many years ago, I knew nothing about Rumi. My search began on that day and I am grateful that Rumi is a living spirit for me and always will be.

You shared some of your own poetry with us that day and I hope that some day you will record your own poetry.

This is a stunning and mystical experience ... a live evening of sacred poetry accompanied with music of the genre and background history on spiritual giants like Rumi, Attar, Lalla and the rest. I was utterly blown away by the depth and the quality of the experience delivered here.
Truly ... a labour of love. Bravo!

Absolutely loved this CD. I play it on my early morning walks and find something new each time I listen to it.

The poems are great but the background music is too loud and is very distracting.
