A Country Suite by Fiona Bennett

Do you listen to music? Are you set in your ways or are you open to new ideas?

I want to highly recommend A Country Suite, the most beautiful CD by Fiona Bennett.

There are 9 pieces of music on the CD. I like to play them when doing mundane jobs as somehow time passes pleasantly whilst playing this CD. It makes my mind wander to places much nicer that the washing up bowl in front of me.

Some pieces of music on the CD calm me and others move me. I think it is the sort of album that will be enjoyed in a unique way by the individual listening to it.

Fiona is a mum to two boys Dominic and Zachary. She also has greyhounds called Amber and Cleopatra. She seems rooted in family life both with her boys and by dedicating this album to her parents Mo and Des who did all they could to find her a wonderful piano teacher in Mary Rees. Fiona credits this lady with changing her life.

I sense the countryside means a lot to Fiona and this comes across in her work. There is a sense of the strength of nature and country traditions, a feeling that everything will pass and all will be OK.

Do you find music helps you deal with stress in your everyday life?

    Yes, this is a lovely album, one that anyone can have in their collection.

    I was absolutely moved by this myself. I’m not a ‘classical’ music person at all, but this is mainstream enough to appeal to anyone with an ear for melody. Absolutely stunning.
