This is what author Niklas Rådström says about the albums:

Piece in Peace. All around are to be found empty acoustic rooms and silent organ pipes waiting to be filled with new music. Churches are increasingly-important concert venues and with these pieces Elisabeth Engdahl and Thomas Gustafsson have created music to fill the vaults with sounds  to vibrate far beyond their walls.

Inside Bach. In “Inside Bach” Christian Spering, one of Sweden’s foremost instrumentalists all categories, recaptures the Bach that was not only a master of counterpoint and the polyphonic musical form, but also an outstanding improviser. In a gentle motion between inquiring improvisation and a strong fidelity to the composer’s notation Spering opens the music to an intimate presence beyond genres and traditions and also provides a couple of longer pieces with echoes and loops which gives the polyphonic expression a new form. “Inside Bach” shows the old organist in Leipzig as at one and the same time our obvious contemporary and completely timeless.
