Novus Magnificat,
a gorgeous, otherworldly opus from classically trained pianist Constance Demby, has become a true classic ... Demby's majestic vision produces what the 1986 disc's liner notes call "Contemporary classical Spacemusic: A Magnificat and Exaltate." Master composers Bach and Vivaldi come to mind ...". --Paige La Grone



Listener Response:

"You must know how words can utterly fail you when something unspeakably beautiful touches your senses: Novus was an utterly mind-boggling work that left me breathless." - D. Vencill


"It's
haunting, scary, beautiful, terrifying, awesome, intimate, spectacular; the way it makes me feel, the things I think about, the times I remember, the things I look forward to. Is this music real? It is the most incredible piece of music I have ever heard." - S. Lazur


"
Astonishing genius:

Constance has given me the means to connect with my Source, again and again. The first time this happened, the power of this memory of Home shook me to the core. Staggering intensity and uncompromising kindness. I have found through repeated listening that there is an encoded depth potential which might be infinite here...I have gone deeper and deeper over time, What genius. Clearly Constance has been to where she has so eloquenlty led any of us who stop to seriously listen." -Steven Toth


"I have never before heard any music that activates and energizes each meridian and energy center like Novus does. As the meridieans are energized the energy centers of the body vibrate at a level that is truly out of this world. Constance Demby has achieved musical brilliance, by tapping into the future and giving us a piece of musical history. " - Steve Davis, ChiGong Master


"I have had this cd for over 1 year and every time I listen to it I discover something new.  I have never heard music like this.  The music gets inside of my mind and just blows every stressful thought away. " - Don Ballard


"The sheer scale, richness and depth of the piece is truly MAGNIFICENT. The first side brings to mind Brahms at the level of the divine, and the second, Bach-Handel-Mozart and the rest of the classicists in heaven. The piece is powerful, heartfelt, touching and tough. I admire Constance for her willingess to depart from the emotional safety of the paradisical into the almost threateningly awesome. Her genius is to hold to the compassion and inspiration through those places so that the portrayal of divine power is always imbued with a quality of redemption and purification. That is a feat which requires direct experience of the truth of the matter. A truth which very few composers have known or have the skill to portray. " - D. Hallock


"The closest thing to a religious experience that I have ever experienced! "-A music fan WICHITA, KS


"Your music-- in general, but more specifically, "Novus Magnificat" has had an impact on my life beyond any ability to express in words. As I struggle to stay out of the hospital & make it through surgery after surgery, there are times when this work was, and is more affective than any "drug", shrink or otherwise could have been. An argument could be made that I am alive and successful today, writing this due to the kindling of inner strength which this work fosters. I am not used to writing fan letters & in fact never have until now so I will leave this at that." - Dan Hayman




"Long hair in a short hair world
Constance Demby - Novus Magnificat is truly a neo-classical masterpiece. Novus Magnificat is far too complex and symphonic to be New Age. ...sounds as if it were written alongside of the greats such as
Beethoven or Bach.." -Rich Abrams - , Weleetka, OK



"If this recording received the recognition it truly deserved, Ms. Demby would be one of the most celebrated composers of our times. This is music of substance. In some sections the listener is challenged by complicated counterpoint reminiscent of Bach. Other passages remind one of the tender yet emotional music of Rachminoff and Tchaikovsky. Still other parts bring to mind the power and majesty of Mozart. This is not static music. The listener is drawn ever upward in a spiral of motion and emotion to the very gates of heaven. ... Whether Constance Demby takes her place with the classical masters of old is up the providence of the ages but there is something very special about this music. It has that same mystical quality one experiences with the music of the 12th century's Hildegard Von Bingen .... Music that inspires and perhaps, even heals." - Leonard Lakey



Sometimes I think this music is magic. I played NOVUS MAGNIFICAT a few weeks ago on WUWF , and got a tremendous response. One gruff sounding gentleman called to tell me that even though he thought of himself as "a macho sort of guy," Contance Demby's music brought tears to his eyes." - L. Kohanov
 

"A completely mind blowing and awe inspiring piece of music.,
From the very first note that engulfs you from this cd you are wisked away on a magical journey to your inner self. It needs to be played at a good volume to get the full effects ...This has got to be the best piece of music I have ever listened to." - a fan from Guernsey, Channel Islands, U.K.,


"Beautiful music, Beau-oootiful music" my friend murmured listening to your work, as he lay in a hospital bed, blinded by the AIDS that soon thereafter claimed his body. He listened to it again and again that afternoon, and I know it was a profoundly comforting experience for him. I've never before owned any recorded music that so entered the fabric of my life. " - J. Parker


"A gorgeous modern classic that should not be missed,
"A precedent setting, awe inspring work. I am still amazed every time I listen .... Bone chilling beauty is evident again and again. .. once I heard some of Constance Demby's work, I was hooked. Hers is the standard I hold a lot of music to now, especially new age or other electronic forms. Prepare to be taken on an incredible journey" - A music fan from Miami, FL


"
I have had this cd for over 1 year and every time I listen to it I discover something new.  I have never heard music like this.  ". - Don Ballard



"This is viagra for you soul!,
I have more than 500 new age cd´s but this is the a the top of my list, in fact I belive it is the best new age cd ever. It can make your soul have a spiritual orgasm!" - A music fan from guadalajara, mexico


"Good marriage of sacred classical and new age instrumentation
, As the title suggests, there is a link to the classical and baroque sacred choral works in this "new" Magnificat. The use of modern electronic instrumentation provides coloration and power unavailable to composers of their era. Although definitely of the Space Music genre, there is an emotional quality to the music that is often missing in this type. ". - a fan from Orlando, Florida


"I've been enjoying Novus, Aeterna, and your other fine CDs for many years.  The first time I heard Novus I was basically was totally blown away by it.   Now, 15 years later I still listen to Novus on a weekly basis.  It will never lose its power to seduce and thrill." - David DeLucia


"When I first heard Novus Magnificate in 1986, I only heard the last 10 min. or so,but I was completly overwhelmed! I know with cell of my being that this music is from GOD! Without religion, creed, or church. Just pure, direct from the heavens, music! It is my goal (being a musician also) to have this music (Novus Magnificate) performed by a full choir and orchestra, before I pass away; At the greatest spritual/metaphysical convention of all time! " -Phillip E Davis


"Music that moves through your soul!
This is truely one of the best CD's I have ever purchased. . You will never get tired of this CD. It's as moving today as it was when I bought it when it first came out in 1986 over 14 years ago." -martinkawai Mountain Home, TX


"Dear Hearts of Space,
Constance Demby is the Queen, and NOVUS MAGNIFICAT is the jewel in the crown of the symphonic synthesizer space genre." - P. Becker

 

"You have brought us to new heights together. We have attained a new vision of the world and a more intense awareness of what is really true and important in this world. " - D. and R. Tardif


"Truly the Magnificat is
a power beyond words, and music beyond known realms of music. I have never experienced anything quite like it." - M. Larits


"I tried consciously to connect with my Higher Self during the first listening of NOVUS, and it worked! It was
the most touching, overwhelming, meditational experience I have ever had...! " - Lisa

"There is no other recording in the electronic genre rooted in the harmonies of Bach and the romantics that is so heartfelt, so devout...you will be moved "- USA Today
