Alan Stivell - Renaissance of the Celtic Harp,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Renaissance of the Celtic Harp (Audio CD)
I purchased this album as a record years ago. It was one of the early "ethnic" music records, and, as far as I am concerned, set a standard of quality rarely matched for truly beautiful music of this genre. The arrangements are great, the joining of one piece to another is very well done, and it makes for really enjoyable listening, partly due to Stivell's creating an "atmosphere" throughout the recording which is wholely appropriate to the music. It is completely instrumental, which suits me in that I am not particularly fond of vocal music in this type of music.
I am ordering the CD version since my record collection is unfortunately terminally done for due to too many moves and new technology. This recording is one of the few I have insisted on replacing with a CD.
