Seonaid nic Iain

Mellow, with good arrangements. Enjoy the songs/poetry combination.
Quite a variety of moods here -- and yes, the material is about both life and death. No two arrangements are alike; traditional wire-strung harp is used nicely here. This is not the Clancy Brothers (thank heavens!), but will please medievalists no end. Some of the harmonies are eerie in their beauty; it's also nice to hear a little Gaelic sung, too (tho with an American accent.....!). Cailleach manages some cool a capella sounds, which not everyone can bring off. I enjoy this CD.
