Our latest in a series of soothing music CDs, Rejuve II, has all-new / all-original music to comfort, inspire and encourage. Rejuve II features ambient guitar, clarinet and electronica played in a soft and mellow style, with soothing and mellow singing bowls and bells. Rejuve (the first album) features features specially tuned pianos, violin and percussion, played in a soft and mellow style, creating a soothing and peaceful feeling.
Each album has a very different flavor from the other, but both are useful in guided meditations, spa relaxation, and simply drifting pleasantly for a time, away from the stresses of the day.Visit the Our Soundcloud Page for audio samples!
In partnership with The Elfenworks Foundation, Rejuve II was made available to UCSF’s Springer Lab as a giveaway incentive for donations to important cardiac research on the effects of second-hand smoking. The original Rejuve album was released in partnership with The Elfenworks Foundation and the Greater Bay Area Chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) to bring comfort to those whose lives have been affected by blood cancers. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is the world’s largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research, education, and patient services. The Society’s mission: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. We similarly supported Package of Prevention, a nonprofit that advocates for cancer awareness, and then made the CD available for a time for free download at BrotherCamillus.com.

Modern keyboard tuning has been in “equal temperament” for nearly the past 100 years. This means that each half step in an octave is spaced equally from the rest, a compromise which makes all of the intervals slightly out of tune, but allows for exactly the same sound in every key signature. Historical, or “well temperament” means that the half steps are not equally spaced—the result being that some key signatures have a more harmonious, in-tune sound, while others sound more dissonant. The pianos were tuned in an historical “well temperament” and Tammy Hall specifically composed and performed these melodies in the key signatures that can be perceived as more harmonious in this tuning. The effect is a calming, soothing musical experience. – John Callahan, Piano Technician, Callahan Piano
