: : : Yes, that's the one. VERY haunting.
: : : Here's the promo blurb;
: : : "Jeff Victor weaves a haunting tapestry of this magical land, using harp, bagpipe, violin, piano, guitar, and the whispers of the moors."
: : Elaine & Dana,
: : I have this CD, too, and I love it. Especially the way it opens with The Ghost Piper of An Allt Mor. I have a collection of Lifescapes CDs, particularly the Celtic ones, that I really love. And thanks to the generosity of Pilgrim Penny, I have two tapes filled with samples from her vast Celtic collection, including some Loreena McKennit, who is wonderful. Two of my favorites on those tapes are Loreena's: The Bonny Swans and The Highwayman.
: : MMMMarcia
: : PS...and no steenking sister/brother/aunt/uncle/ANYBODY better even TRY to steal mine!! ;o)
: Marcia & Dana,
: Isn't Loreena great? "The Highwayman" IS particularly nice. What I really like about her music is the way she draws upon so many cultural influences ... like Middle Eastern & Sacred music.
: Very inspiring.
: Dana - the reason I asked you about your sister's theft is that I got my CD by stealing it from MY sister. She's not happy about it. Not at all.
: Marcia, are you sure Penny GAVE those CDs to you????????
Talked to my little sister this evening. Mentioned the "Scottish Moors". She and her husband still love it and listen to it often. I'll just buy a new one.
Does anyone like Phil Coulter? He does Celtic stuff. Lots of piano. He put out a Christmas CD a couple of years ago. I can't find it anywhere. There is a song on the CD called "Homecoming". If you ever come across it, BUY IT. It's lovely.
