Luscious, multi-instrumental diversions!

"Harpist Lisa Lynne, formerly known as Lisa Lynne Franco, is featured in cheerful arrangements crafted by herself and fellow instrumentalists George Tortorelli and David Arkenstone. These contemporary compositions, truly an ensemble effort, borrow from traditional motifs and add modern ambience and edge. Instrumentation used includes mandolin, dulcimer, guitars, cittern, arch lute, violin, cello, gamba, bass, electronic keyboards, percussion, and the distinctive, fluid flute and whistle-playing of George Tortorelli. When I first heard this CD, I was in the midst of reading a fantasy story by Mercedes Lackey entitled "The Eagle and the Nightingales", published as part of the trilogy compilation "The Free Bards". It occurred to me, as I looked at the cover painting by Nora Koerber for "Daughters of the Celtic Moon" and the photographs of Lisa dressed in period garb, that there was some similarity to Lackey's descriptions of her harp-toting bardic heroine "Nightingale". Then I noticed that the fourth track on this album is actually entitled "Nightingale", and later realized that Lackey and Lynn had both collaborated with David Arkenstone on his album "The Celtic Book of Days". A case of mutual inspiration? Or mere coincidence in a small world? Regardless, I find Lynne's music quite complimentary to the spirit of Lackey's brave, gentle and loving character. If you like this CD, check out Lynne's extensive discography. A visit to her website will reveal her complete history of releases, with wonderfully long clips to listen to and without any confusion caused by name changes."
A Great Album

"When I bought this my boyfriend rolled his eyes as he always dose when I buy new age type CDs. When I played it later that night he fell in love with the ethirical sounds of the harp, and the divine wistle of the flute. Now I have to fight him to take this CD to work or any where for that matter. A must have for any one who loves great music and wonderfully produced albums."
