This lush, evocative ¿soundtrack¿ by the Brothers Danna brings to life the legend of Deirdre with mystery, excitement, sorrow and Celtic flare. Mychael and Jeff¿s melodies for whistle, fiddle, soprano, harp and plaintive pipes penetrate the heart, lingering on in memory long after the CD player has been turned off. And unlike many folk and new age compositions, this music has real complexity and depth. No excessive repetition here--the harmonies move and change, percussion varies, themes emerge and fade, and the melodies travel onward from beginning to end. This is a true symphony of sound, featuring sixteen talented solo-musicians backed by the Utah Orchestra. ¿A Celtic Tale: The Legend of Deirdre¿ actually comes in two versions: music only, and the same music as background for ¿The Thistle and Shamrock¿s¿ Fiona Ritchie while she narrates the story in her delightful brogue. If you like this recording, try the very lovely and complimentary ¿A Celtic Romance: The Legend of Liadain and Curithir¿, also by the Danna brothers, and also the surprisingly similar ¿The Merlin Mystery¿ by Alkaemy.
