Comments & Short Reviews


This video contains clips of all of the tracks from the Ascension album.

“I came across this CD many years ago and have returned to it again and again. It moves me in ways which I find hard to describe. The title is an accurate description of the effect of the music. Every time I listen to it I find my spirit literally soars. I use this CD to relieve feelings of sadness and/or grief, and I truly believe it would aid anyone suffering from a significant loss. As a reflexologist and counsellor I use this music with my clients. I think Clifford White must have been communing with the Gods when he produced this album.” – D. Cox, Australia.

“One of the all-time classics of gentle New Age Music…” – Mark Jenkins, Future Age Music Express.

“Clifford’s music is one of the nearest to the work of Vangelis the UK has provided to date – Ascension is a lovely album, featuring synthesized heavenly choirs and soaring strings that are stunningly melodic and spiritually uplifting…” – C & D Compact Disc Services.

“Ascension is Clifford White‘s first album, written before he was 20 years old. The melodies are simple, yet radiant; the synth orchestrations sound like an organs and clarion with the occasional angel choir. “Mr. Elemental” offers a nice touch with its funky bass line. By the end of “Eternal Dusk,” I was hooked into White’s dream world. “Music Box Lullaby” is just that, but with even higher pitches, perhaps meant for fairies’ ears. The album has that certain “something” — the dewy wisdom of innocence, perhaps — that makes it an enduring favorite. Charming.” – Carol Wright, All Music Guide.

“…a slice of New Age music history…” – Vee Van Dam, ‘DNA Door’ magazine.

“A classic New Age that everyone should own, I’m on my 3rd copy , on cd at last after wearing out two tapes ! What more can I say – just one the best ever chillout albums ever made – if you haven’t got it , now’s your chance!” – Andy, UK.
