I don't usually make "Top 10" or "Best of" lists about vgm albums, but this arrange album certainly deserves the very highest marks for it's unmatched quality.

This is an album that every vgm fan should experience, as the level of musicianship on these arrangements is quite staggering (I'd even say legendary).

Track 06 Lullaby rivals the beauty of Yo-Yo Ma's string playing anyday (it's on a Morin Khuur, similar to Ehru). This is perhaps the most expressive string performance ever from ANY vgm album, especially the 2nd half.

A memorable journey across mountains and deserts awaits your ears, please give this a listen.

I agree.

Also, is it White Doves, or White Does? It looks like we have it both ways in the database. Direct translation favors Does, but I see it both ways on Google.

EDIT

WARNING: The 3 of us are trampling each other's edits. I'll let Blah sort it out.

It should be "Doe", 牝鹿 = "female deer". I'll edit it in.

This also shows how usefull VGMdb can be for sorting out one's collection, because in cases like this it's an album that I have much respect for, but haven't yet owned myself.
Going through all your material over time can give "reminders" to go back and pick up great albums that you've been meaning to get.
