This marriage of classical music with folk-singing is achingly beautiful. If you heave heard "Chants d'Auvergne" by Canteloube then you have some idea how sweet and melancholy this is. The large chamber orchestra plays melodically and the singing has the bright clarity of Kathy Jordan (lead singer of Dervish). The story of Granuaile, the female pirate, would make a good feature film as well. Add to that the occasional folk fiddle, harp, uillean pipes and choir, and you have an hour of beautiful music. You thought that they don't make 'em like this anymore.
