And it has led to a genre of Ambient/Classical hybrids that continue to the present day.
For Ambient is, at its heart, a sensibility for sound and space, one which had already been incorporated into certain forms of Western classical music over ten centuries of evolution: especially sacred and choral music, works for pipe organ, and adagio movements of all eras and genres.
