Album Notes
Distant Oaks is an award-winning ensemble specializing in dynamic, historically informed performances of traditional Gaelic and early European music. Rich, expressive singing in a variety of languages, combined with virtuosic, skillfully arranged ensemble playing on a broad array of period and traditional instruments, define Distant Oaks' musical style. Their warm, intimate performances appeal to both the intellect and the emotions and have proven to delight a diverse range of listeners.

In addition to their strong dedication to Gaelic music, language, and culture, as well as authentic traditional and Early Music performance practices, Distant Oaks is also actively engaged in composing new music in older styles. In the spirit of fine music-making and respect for tradition, Distant Oaks continues to bring a brilliant panoply of music to their audiences.

Distant Oaks has had the pleasure of performing and recording with such fine traditional musicians as Jerry O'Sullivan, Liz Carroll, Patrick Ball, Shay Black, and Paul Kotapish (Open House), as well as such Early Music luminaries as David Douglass (The King's Noyse, The Newberry Consort), Julie Jeffrey (Sex Chordae of Viols), Cheryl Ann Fulton (Ensemble Alcatraz), Shira Kammen (Ensemble Alcatraz, Fortune's Wheel), and Peter Maund (Ensemble Alcatraz, Skyedance).

"I could go on mentioning my favourites until I had mentioned every item on the CD! What I really want to say is I was completely enchanted by the latest creation of this very talented group who, on this occasion, were accompanied by some of the finest musicians in this field. 'A rare treat' as we say in Scotland." -Colin Mark, Author of "The Gaelic-English Dictionary" and "Gaelic Verbs"

"It's here, and it's glorious! The booklet alone is worth the price. Ceud mìle taing! (A hundred thousand thanks!)" -Diane de Avalle-Arce

Lovely album!
If you love - or even like - celtic or renaissance music, you should buy this and all the rest of the Distant Oaks albums! They get better with each listening! If you're into celtic spirituality, this CD should be your first of theirs to buy. Wonderful settings of prayers and incantations, as well as traditional tunes. Buy, listen and enjoy!
