A Celtic Romance: The Legend of Lladain and Curithur

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jim Brenholts
A Celtic Romance: The Legend of Lladain and Curithin is a large-scale production from Mychael Danna and Jeff Danna. They combine symphonic synthesizers with a symphony orchestra and traditional Irish music to create an atmospheric tribal experience. The tribal overtones and textures are distinctly Celtic and Anglican. Sweet, romantic vocals augment the atmospheres. The sound design is perfect; the lyrics tell the story and the music tells the tale. The vocals are integral to the soundscape. The chants are dirges; they are the coup de grace. This delightful CD is essential for all fans of Celtic ambience. Mychael and Jeff Danna, while not as prolific, are in the same zone ...

    Rich and evocative!

    More musical storytelling by the Danna brothers, along with their talented instrumental soloists, a soprano vocalist, a full orchestra, and the Ritual Choir of the Church of St. Mary Magdalene in Toronto. With all of that, the music of ¿The Legend of Liadain and Curithir¿ remains surprisingly intimate and accessible, ever varying in form and instrumentation. The Dannas continue the tradition of their earlier release, ¿A Celtic Tale: The Legend of Deirdre¿, interweaving engaging, Celtic-inspired melodies with lush accompaniments to evoke moods from celebration to sorrow, mystery to bold adventure. There¿s no narrated version for this release--just the wonderful music. Other similarly compelling ¿soundtracks¿ to historical and fantasy legends include David and Diane Arkenstone¿s ¿Avalon: A Celtic Legend¿ and ¿Music Inspired by Middle Earth¿, and Jeff Johnson and Brian Dunning¿s ¿Byzantium: The Book of Kells and St. Aidan¿s Journey¿, and ¿Music of Celtic Legends: The Bard and the Warrior¿. Buy all six and put them on a multi-CD mixer for hours of inspiring journeys through time and imagination!
