'In the Silence' Keyboard Magazine - March 1999 by Jim Aikin 'A liitle folk, a little pop, a little new age, and more than a little magic. From the pseudo-Mark Isham trumpet and luscious fretless bass to the 'world music' wood flute and Udu drums, from the country fiddle and steel-string to the gauzy wash of ECM reverb, 'In the Silence' is a peaceful genre-buster. And just when you think you've got it pegged, Ritter starts singing. Her voice is a caress, and the lyrics are straight from the heart. 'Petito is mainly a guitarist, and his keyboard workstays in the background, but he always finds just the right synth line to move the tune forward. He's also the producer, and the prodcution is gemlike -- detailed, airy, balanced, intimate, with not a note out of place. For fine music and fine studio chops, look no further. '
