Album Notes
Love Like Angels, the new album from Carmina, features an impressive range of musical styles and themes all given cohesion and the unique trademark Carmina sound by Pippa Marland's emotive vocals, Rob King's fine arrangements and unmistakeable acoustic guitar style, and brilliant performances by the Carmina band: Nic France (Bill Withers, Annie Lennox, Tanita Tikaram) on drums and percussion; the late Pete Jacobsen (Morrissey-Mullen, Level 42) on keyboards; Julian Nicholas (Loose Tubes, Dudu Pukwana) on tenor and soprano saxes and Irish whistles; and Ben Groenevelt (Gerard Presencer, Polly Harvey) on double bass. There is also a guest voice appearance by actor Paul McGann (Withnail and I, The Monocled Mutineer) on the track 'Tom Moody', which features Paul speaking lines of a Yeats poem as well as words from the song.

The album contains ten original songs, one original instrumental, and an innovative interpretation by Pete and Pippa of the Irish traditional ballad 'Blackwaterside'. The musical styles range from Celtic folk ('Katy, the Years', 'Tom Moody', 'Blackwaterside') through contemporary jazz ('World Inside of Nothing', 'Love Like Angels') to upbeat pop/rock ('Cut You Into Stars', 'Thin Blue Line'). The songs deal with subjects such as Pippa and Rob's Irish heritage ('Tom Moody', 'Katy the Years'); love relationships ('Love Like Angels', 'You Are In My Heart', 'Thin Blue Line'); and a Ku Klux Klan killing ('Beulah Mae's Dream').

This is the band's first studio recording since Weather in the Heart (I&E CD102), produced by Donal Lunny: 'One of the most surprising, enriching and lyrical albums of the Celtic world' El Pais; '...mesmerising and bewitching, effortless in the language of love and the emotions' Irish Times; 'A five star album, utterly indispensable' Folk on Tap.

Carmina have toured worldwide to great critical acclaim, and appeared at festivals such as Glastonbury, Edinburgh, Bruges Winter Festival and the Sydney St Patrick's Day Parade. Last year the band released a live album, On a Quiet Street (I&E CD101) recorded in Ireland with sponsorship from Guinness; and their track 'Beulah Mae's Dream' (from Love Like Angels) was included on the prestigious Galway Bay FM compilation Embraces. Carmina's continuing wide appeal was illustrated by the fact that their song 'Concorde' was played by air traffic controllers at Heathrow Airport as the Concordes landed after their last commercial flights on Oct 24th 2003. Highlights of the band's activities this coming year include appearances at Marlborough Jazz Festival, Cork Jazz Festival and tours of the US, Belgium and Ireland. Radio play continues to be strong for Carmina, gaining new audiences for them in the UK, Europe, Ireland and in the USA.
