CD Reviews

Truly a masterpiece ! One of my all-time favorites!

"A great blending of sounds and influences. This music is dynamic and energetic and yet soothing too. It's great music to have you close your eyes and imagine yourself in beautiful places."
Flawed but still worthwhile

"I don't think this would convert someone to liking Alan Stivell's music, but for those who already like his more accessible work it is worth a listen, if you can get hold of a copy -- although don't expect a collection of celtic folk tunes! It was one of the first CDs I bought (which may show how old it and I are!) and I still listen to it with enjoyment. In summary, I think it works well in some parts and doesn't work in others, but unlike another reviewer I don't go so far as to skip over the bits I don't like. Yes, some of the singing is indecipherable; yes, some of the repetition goes on for too long; some of the musical passages don't seem to lead anywhere, but amongst all of that there are some brilliantly written and very powerful passages."
Sacred Music! Intense!

"This music is so special - describing it in terms of what instruments are played does it a disservice. If you are looking for light, fluffy pop music, don't bother. But, if you want to be transported to Celtic Britain, or would like to have a spiritual experience that has roots in the sacred Earth and takes flight, then this cd is a must! Intensely powerful, beautiful, sacred music."
