"Music for the child in you that needs to be rocked and soothed"   J. Leberman, Music for People

"The most delightful recordings I have heard in years.  A tapestry of friendly melodies, reaching out and touching the heart and soul with warm fuzzies."
Detroit Folklore Society

"Impressive lovely, airy effect, clear warm sonics.  This is such relaxing and healing music." 
B. Bartlett, Crown Microphones

"Gentle music performed with sensitivity, elegance, and grace" 
Muskegon Chronicle

"Your music is a joy to listen to" 
Mike Flynn, Folk Sampler, Public Radio

 

Quotes
from our patrons

"Some things seem to touch deep to the soul and soothe it at the same time like your music." C. F. 

"A unique sound.  Deeply spiritual, even heavenly.  This must be what heaven sounds like." 
G. H.

"I call your recordings vitamins for the soul".
A. L.

All of our recordings are graced with the sounds of Celtic harp, hammered dulcimer, wooden flutes, whistles, and pan flute.  Our later recordings feature additional woodwinds and keyboard along with some of our musician friends playing a wide variety of instruments. 

We also lightly touch some of our selections with the sounds of  Mother Nature as she occurs around our homestead.  

Our "State of the Art" Studio

Each of our recordings was conceived and produced in our living room studio. This relaxed and comfortable atmosphere allows us to freely create without the pressure of the expensive recording studio time clock. We think this environment produces the simple, gentle, and relaxed sound of Collecting Consort recordings.

The Unique Collecting Consort Recording Process

We use a Crown SASS mic (with a variety of other high quality mics for accent purposes), fed through a Mackie CR1604-VLZ mixer and to our computer via a Dakota sound card, and Sonar software. 

We mix and edit with , Sonar, Sound Forge and Vegas software.
