Metrical Middle Eastern melodies and rich vocals are what Ellen M. Wilson finely crafts on her disc, "Songs of Ascent." Wilson has a sweet and rich voice that brings the listener to a relaxing frame of mind. As you listen to the first track, "Modah Ani," a sense of serenity fills the air with attributes not only from the vocals but the instruments as well. Another song, "Lo Yisa Goy," is complemented with an array of soothing instrumentation and once again the vocals are clean, crisp, and emotive. Not only is the piano gracefully accompanying the lead vocals on "Pitchu Li," but the harmonies are smooth and elegant adding to the ambiance of this beautiful song. Although most songs are sung in the Hebrew language, Wilson gives an exquisite performance while singing in English on "Healing Song," with lyrics that are sung from the heart. The Hebrew melodies of Ellen M. Wilson's "Songs of Ascent" are a wonderful compilation of spiritual music that will uplift your inner being and will leave you with a sense of total tranquility.
