Product Description

Product Description

2006 marks the 25th anniversary of this quite remarkable suite for orchestra and uillean pipes composed by Shaun Davey. To this day it is still seen as a groundbreaking, crossover work of cultural significance. This confrontation of two separate traditions develops into a triumphant collaboration telling the story of explorer Tim Severin's epic voyage across the Atalantic.

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant collaboration! 8 Mar 2009
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Curragh Brendan 28 April 2010
Format:Audio CD
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?

5.0 out of 5 stars Magic music 30 Jan 2010
Format:Audio CD
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.

you can empty your mind and think only of the voyage. the music tells the story with highs lows and calm. A wonderful composition and I never tire of listening to it even thought I only have it on LP.
