Heirborne – Review by Tim Griggs

“During the 1980s, new age music developed more than a cult following. A few artists, including George Winston, sold millions of records. Winston’s record label, Windham Hill Records, became so popular that new age fans purchased their releases without any prior knowledge of the artists.

The Christian music label Sparrow Records created Meadowlark Records to take advantage of the craze. Richard Souther was the most successful artist on the that label, and rightfully so. Heirborne features almost flawless musical compositions, especially the title track. The only weakness of this release is that the instrumentation is performed on synthesized keyboards.

Keyboards that were state of the art in 1985 quickly became dated.  Heirborne, nevertheless, is a worthy find of beautiful music. It would be even more beautiful if performed on acoustic instruments.”
