CD Reviews

No other word but quiet.
Anna Bierne | 05/11/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This C.D. is very good but a word of warning- it is very quiet. If you want a rollicking C.D. full of Gaelic jig then you probably wont want this."
Gorgeous music

"This album is fantastic; I too have been "searching," without even really knowing it ~ in my heart and mind and soul ~ for a long time for music like this. The violas in particular really resonate and are featured along with all the other wonderful instruments. I need more! Hesperus, please do another album of the same style! I don't know where else to look for this music and I listen to it every day on my hour long ride in the car. I practically have it memorized; line by line heart and soul. Thank you so much."
