This beautifully textured masterpiece sparkles with classic songs like Still Water, The Maker, O Marie, Under A Stormy Sky and Where The Hawkwind Kills. The gripping melodies have a folky feel but the playing and production give it an ethereal, atmospheric dimension that puts it in a league of its own. O Marie is sung entirely in French, while Jolie Louise and Under A Stormy Sky have alternating French and English verses. The album concludes with a tender, subdued version of Amazing Grace. There is a certain spiritual quality to the music that is hard to define, but also found in the work of fellow Canadian Jane Siberry, or on John Cale and Brian Eno’s Wrong Way Up or in Peter Gabriel’s songs Blood Of Eden and Come Talk To Me. Acadie is a very uplifting listening experience. Exquisite music.
