In De Profundis: Out of the Depths II the follow-up to the much acclaimed De Profundis: Out of the Depths Terry Oldfield, combines his beautiful music with the majesty of the whale’s song and haunting voice of Dani Vickery. The sound is moving, mysterious and alluring, reaching wave-like climaxes and then returning to the beautiful and familiar depths of Terry’s music. A great addition for a timeless collection.

“The dulcet tones of soprano and alto flutes played by Terry Oldfield on his new release, De Profundis: Out of the Depth II, coupled with synthesizers and vocals, truly give one the expansive feel of the depths of the ocean. A very thin texture of instrumentation gives that wide-open feeling, with haunting vocals drawing the listener into a world below. Sweet, simple melodic lines accented by an equally simple piano arpeggio work together to create this feeling of swimming in a sea of peace. In the third of four tracks he opens with whale song and ocean sounds. Then, gradually, he brings in the flutes. These echo one another in a delightful, freeflowing vocal chant. In the last track the vocals are layered to sound like a bevy of chanting cherubs to give the listener the feeling of heaven under water as she drifts in a blissful sea. Oldfield has honored his skills through years of creating albums and soundtracks for film and TV. His credits include National Geographic and discography of more than 20 albums since 1983. He is a master.” – Massage Magazine
