We all long for some kind of protected zone in our lives, a place to withdraw from the noise and craziness in the world, a refuge of balance and peace. Some find it in the silence of a forest, in the remoteness of mountains or the rolling waves by the seaside. Some find it in sacred places, praying or practicing meditation. Listeners all over the world tell me how my music helps them cope with the challenges of life. Please feel welcome to enter my musical Sanctuary. — Gandalf
