CD Reviews

A symphony to rival Spring itself.
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This CD has been likened to a warm summer evening by a local classical music host, but for me, the sounds are like those made by fairies, sprites and other woodland wee folk. Stand where the forest river meets the sea, and you will hear the sound of a sailor's hornpipe carry across the water. Walk back in the forest a while, and you'll hear gypsies, wizards, Kings and warriors. Listen! Don't the harp and the fife remind you a little of birds, singing a joyous refrain? And the cello, a bit like the sound of your footfalls on the forest path? Isn't that running water from the nearby brook? Oh, #@*& !, I've let the bathtub run over. Gotta go. And, if you truly enjoy sounds with a magical blend of Celtic, Spanish and French overtones, then you've gotta order this CD."
A Magical Journey for Children of All Ages

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I casually picked up this album at the local Borders and was amazed. Cantiga, the instrumentalists from The New World Renaissance Band, have put together, from sources as disparate as Irish folk music and the Italian Renaissance, an enchanting collection of songs that could be the sound track for a magical ballet. The music is soothing enough to be background music, yet complex enough to bear careful listening. It's a pity the CD is out of print, as the music is thoroughly delightful and skilfully played on modern instruments with a sensitivity rarely found in today's early music ensembles. Highly recommended."

"This CD has such soulful and etheral melodic quality... My daughter (who's 12!) and I will frequently fall asleep listening to it! A wonderful gateway to dreamland."
