In this lush production, Deepak Chopra pays homage to one of the world's great religious works, the BHAGAVAD GITA, along with hymns and prayers from the RIG VEDA. Chopra begins the recording with an intriguing lecture on the influence of language and semantics in our thought and emotions. Accompanied by an orchestra of traditional Indian instruments, Chopra's plummy voice then intones an English translation of the works with sensitivity and reverence. Clearly a work of love, SACRED VERSES is a wonderful way to become acquainted with Hindu thought and tradition, suitable for those new to the work or those who treasure it. D.J.B.
