I first heard Shaun Davey's music when I saw the RSC's Fair Maid of the West in the 80's and have aquired all his albums since - The Brendan Voyage is a beautiful symphony for Irish pipes played by one of the greatest pipers ever Planxty's Liam O'Flynn - brilliant and unforgettable.

Oh joy!
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?

This is a taste of "Light Classical" Music that is utterly breathtaking.
A well-constructed piece with beautiful melodies and very "feeling" interludes for the Story it tells.
It weaves the Light Classical feel with Irish Traditional in an extraordinary way - and is a Winner in both categories.
Written with the power of the Uilleann Pipes in mind, what better exponent to employ than Liam Og O'Flynn.
The most pristine Piper of the modern era (in my opinion) and although there are other Pipers with almost similar abilities in other styles, the recording would be somewhat lacking without Liam at the helm (to speak nautically)

It's the kind of music that will awaken images in your imaginings, and make you feel the pain and delight that the journey created. It is, in my opinion, a Masterpiece.

The synthesis between the orchestra and the uilleann pipes is beautiful. Pipe music by itself in magical but the orchestra does act as a melodious counterpoint to the pipe music.

This is a real secret gem. Get it.
