Airs — "This recording is truly one of the most exciting new
Christmas harp recordings released this year. Christina's mastery of the harp
and her creative ability to compose and arrange is indescribable! Joining Christina
Tourin on this album of traditional and ethnic carols are: Karen Kevra on
flute and Judith Hitt on cello and recorders. Christina uses a variety of bells
to let us know that Christmas is ringing throughout the land. Her original
composition with words, Little Dove, describes the deepest feelings of the
Holiday Season. This is the kind of recording you will want to listen to over
and over." J.D.

Harp — From the mists of Avondale to the sacred waters of
Glastonbury's Chalice Well, the Emerald Harp carries you to the glens of Ireland
and Britain. Christina Tourin's style, a mix of
pure traditional and ambient soulful dreaminess, evokes the spirit of the old
bards. Come on a magical journey to the Isle of Avalon; sacred stone circles,
groves of oak trees and the trickling waters of the Chalice Well.
Harp Music of Austria — Christina Tourin
— The Tyrolean harp music on this recording presents three ways to enjoy this
unique instrument. The harp stands by itself as a solo instrument, as an
accompaniment (to the accordion of Maria von Trapp) and as an equal in ensemble
compositions (with the recorder and zither featuring Rosemarie von Trapp).
Christina performed at the Trapp Family Lodge for 17 years - the home of the
"Sound of Music".
— Christina Tourin — Romantic music for lovers.
This spectacular album has a Mediterranean flavor orchestrated with guitar,
saxophone, flute, accordion and rhythm produced by Peter Sprague. Soft
music yet it moves right along - it is like a liquid gold sunset on the coast of
Harp Seal Lullaby
— When Christina Tourin learned that the little
harp seal pup was being hunted for it's pure white pelt, her heart and energies
went out for their protection. The crystal harp produces similar bell-like
sounds that are often heard in the underwater calls of the Seals. The haunting
refrains of the wooden flute and the panpipes sustain the melodies over the
ripple of harp strings. The ocean is ever-so-softly present, lulling us into
dreamland. This 70-minute album is perfect for massage and meditation. The
Lullaby, Suo Gan, (theme from Empire of the Sun), music from Scotland and
Ireland, and the beautiful Concierto for Aranjuez by Rodrigo are featured along
with Christina's original compositions.
- Labyrinthian Music — Music for personal contemplation, intimate sharing and
perfect for walking a labyrinth. This is a compilation of 20 of Christina
Tourin's original compositions. Christina tours the country with a
beautiful portable canvas labyrinth. To journey to the center of the
labyrinth is to experience the most inner illumined part of your being.
The compositions Christina presents on this album have come from that place.
— SOUNDING STRINGS Harp magazine of Scotland describes Christina
Tourin as "that delightful rarity, a composer of contemporary
melodies that are singable! Her style lies between easy listening and jazz. Her
recording, STARLIGHT, is tranquil, relaxing music with an intimate feel to it.
She uses the warmth of the cello and the purity of the flute, her accompanying
instruments, to superb effect." This is an acoustic album which is very
suitable for massage and relaxation.
of the Heart — Christina Tourin —This
album features 19 selections of Healing Harp Music from the practitioners of the
International Harp Therapy Program. It is soothing, delightful and diversified.
Rose — The Red Rose represents our soul and the White Rose is a
symbol of pure love. This recording has been acclaimed as truly inspirational.
The Folk Harp Journal describes Christina Tourin's
compositions as "innovative, melodic and magical. Each selection becomes a
personal favorite." William Jackson performs on flutes and Kim Robertson
offers beautifully orchestrated descants and harmonies. Amanda MacBroom's
exquisite tune, THE ROSE, popularized by Bette Midler, is woven into Christina's
heartfelt composition, WHITE ROSE.
