Released in March, 2002, "SEASONS of LIFE: Reflections in Song" is a CD for mature reflective adults, age 13 to 113. It is a memorable collection of 17 original inspirational and meditational songs written by Sarah Barchas over a period of many years, yet keenly relevant to today's times. These are songs of reflection and self-awareness, looking at past experiences to take stock of one's life, seeking to find and make more meaning for ourselves and others as long as we have life. The songs have themes of hope and healing, choices and chances, striving through any adversity, survival and loss, taking stock of one's life in the journey of each individual's search for meaning, focusing on the fragility and complexity of life and relationships across passages of experiences and time.

 

This CD transcends categories and has appeal for those interested in folk and acoustic music, inspirational and meditational music, women in music, singer-songwriters, relaxation, easy-listening, healing and reflection, as well as personal and spiritual growth.

 

THE MEANING OF THESE SONGS TO THE LISTENER

REVIEWS AND RECOMMENDATIONS

 

Lon Austin - Phoenix Folk Traditions Music Festival - "From the blue heron on the front of this CD cover to the wonderful songs that reflect on this condition that we call life, Sarah has delved deeply into the human soul and the process of living in her original songs".

 

Rabbi Harold Kushner - Author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People and Living a Life that Matters - "Life - affirming and uplifting" (July, 2002)

 

Rhonda Lester, RN - Psychiatric Nurse and Songwriter - "Miles and I had been having a stressful week and decided to drive up North. We put the CD "Seasons of Life" by Sarah Barchas into our player. It was such therapeutic music. Very soothing. Upbeat. Positive. This is music that can help you focus on things in life that are really important. I would recommend it."

 

Massimo Ferro – Radio Voce Spazio (Italy) – “”Seasons of Life” is not just an immediate work but it is very good. It is also a simple but effective collection of songs with strong autobiographic but also poetic and literary echoes and it has that sort of epic that is typical of some great singers of the past.”
