Irish folk band Clannad were founded in 1970 and for many years performed on traditional Irish instruments and sang only in Gaelic. In 1984, however, they achieved broader public attention when they were commissioned to write the music for the ITV series Robin Of Sherwood. By now, they had incorporated rock instruments and synthesisers into their music alongside the pipes and bodhrans. The resulting sound may have upset purists, but it made for extremely effective accompaniment to the series' broody, mystical take on the Sherwood legend. The ambient drones of "Herne" (as in Herne The Hunter, the demi-God of the forest whom Robin reveres), "Battles" and the haunting "Darkmere" were a good deal more crucial to the overall atmosphere of the series than one or two of the acting performances and are eminently listenable in their own right. --David Stubbs

To a newer generation, the music will come across as breathingkly simple, yet beautiful, being a nice blend of traditional and modern cues skilfully mixed into memorable pieces. One does not need to have watched any of the Robin episodes to get to appreciate the stunningly melodic arrangements, or the hauntingly sweet voices accompanying them.
The only fault is that the pieces are way too short, the total album running only to slightly over half an hour.
The Robin theme is a classic case of how to turn an economy of words into a really big hit - just four words, "Robin, the hooded man" propelled this album to a platinum seller!
The support pieces aren't bad either, conjuring up mental images of forests, pagan gods, maidens in distress, men in anger, fierce battles, or giving an impression of life in ancient times.
The pieces are still proving popular today, as Clannad still plays them at their concerts, and with the recent release of Robin Of Sherwood on DVD, this album could have yet another lease on life.
It is a great album with some haunting themes and songs as well as beautiful moments of instrumentation. The whole album has a very good atmosphere.
The album won the BAFTA award for best original television music/
"Robin the hooded man" the title theme was released as a single both in 1984 with series one and again in 1986. with series three Also the tracks , "Now Is Here" and "Scarlet Inside" were released as singles in their own right.
