ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
An Cuimhin Leat is the first CD from Navan, followed by Mairneas, and Lowena.

From Madison, Wisconsin this is Celtic unaccompanied song, on four voices, in the languages of Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Brittany, Cornwall and the Isle of Man. Navan's melodies, harmonies and arrangements are a delicious blend of traditional and original, with lyrics drawn directly from the Celtic literary repertoire.

"It rooted me to the floor by my very bones."
-- Gearóid Ó hAllmhuráin, Irish musician, historian and author of A Pocket History of Irish Traditional Music, (Dublin: O'Brien, 1998).

Less than a year after Navan's formation, the international Irish music organization Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann took notice and invited the group to be a featured performer at the 1998 Midwest Regional Fleadh Cheoil in Detroit, Michigan. Navan has since traveled far and wide performing at Celtic festivals and concert halls, often in conjunction with workshops in Gaelic traditional singing. Their debut CD, An Cuimhin Leat (Do You Remember), was released in March of 2000 and currently receives airplay worldwide. Including songs in Irish, Scottish Gaelic and Cornish, it offers a tantalizing glimpse of long-hidden but still vibrant Celtic musical and literary traditions. Released in May of 2003, their second CD, Mairneas (Voyage), expands their recorded repertoire to include works in each of the six living Celtic languages. In 2006 they added a third CD, Lowena (Joy).

"Therapeutic!"
-- Tim Dennehy, announcer for Ireland's national radio station RTÉ (Raidió Teilifí­s Éireann).

With overwhelmingly positive reactions to both their CDs and their live performances, Navan continues to carry their unique blend of vocals to an ever increasing audience. Their addictive harmonies are sure to refresh even the most satiated fan of Celtic music.

This is the stuff! Give these people a listen!
This is the stuff! If you'vee been looking for that Celtic magic and are sore tired of overproduced, self-conscious, pretentious wank, give these people a listen. Their work is perfectly balanced, unpretentious and plain - they just lay it out there and it's clear that they feel that their voices, alone, and the love they obviously feel for the music is enough. And you will too!

Superb. A stark contrast to those who consider Amy Grant traditional music.
Very elegant, tight performances. Production well done in dramatic contrast to the current over-post produced traditional music on the market.

Pure listening pleasure.

Beautiful a capella music
If you were only going to buy one a capella CD I would recommend one of Navan's. I don't know anything about Celtic culture, so can't vouch for their authenticity, but I CAN tell you this CD is beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. The harmonies are elegant. The overall effect is one of tranquility.

Tuar Guil
wonderful song, i know the tune as "Sally Garfens" and it is why i learned the irish whistle, so i could play it for my then 4 year old daughter...

Like bathing one's ears in aural silk.
Smooth, mellifluous, calming are just a few of the adjectives fairly applicable to this CD. At times, it reminds me of Gregorian chant meeting Celtic. I want more . . . and sooner would be better. Its time for a third CD.

An Cuimhin Leat
Navan is extraordinary in every sense. Their interpretations of traditional Celtic songs are wonderful in their harmonies. Their voices are so pure that a musical accompaniment would diminish the beauty of their melodies. This music touches the soul.
