This is a supreme work of fusion of a brilliantly played traditional instument (Liam O'Flynn - Ullean pipes) alongside a competent orchestra.
It is the obligatory musical accompaniment whilst reading Tim Severin's publication of the same title. The music precisely follows Tim's articulate narrative.
It is a moody, occasionally-frightening, spiritual, uplifting and, eventually, utterly trimphant suite that you never want to end.
Why has no one other than Celts heard of the composer, Shaun Davey?
