Clannad's *Legend* is one of their best albums in my opinion.
Lee Freeman
Here is a collection of music played during the episodes of Robin of Sherwood.

It is a great soundtrack because it doesn't even sound like one.

Among my very favorite CD's in a considerable collection. I actually became a big Clannad fan years before they were heard of "across the pond" in the U.S. As a stand-alone effort, it is noteworthy; as the accompanying theme to the BBC "Robin Hood" series, it is an absolutely perfect melding of the mediums. A relaxing interlude that is simple yet extraordinarily memorable. Pop this into the player after a hard day at the office, or use it for background "mood" music when your gaming compatriots come over for dice-rolling and beer (you know who you are!)

Clannad/Enya/whatever truly inspired me in my youth as they showed just how much could be achieved with next to nothing. And their influence in delivering mainstream acceptance of the `whispering breathless' style of `Celtic' singing cannot be overestimated. Though quite why this style of singing is so beloved of folkies and why it's become entwined with the image of early Irish/British culture is a mystery to me. But that's not to deny the inroads that Clannad achieved on the mainstream with albums like Legend which, as has been noted, was used in part as the soundtrack to an 80's Robin Hood franchise.

And the music here - well what music is here - truly does evoke images of ancient bards and druids etc in quiet contemplation in some secluded Welsh glade. Magic stuff if your from a Western European background I suppose, it just resonates and feels like small ripples of music washing over you. The lyrical concerns aren't really concerns, just phrases put together to add a human touch. I mean, often the title of the song is the main body of the lyrics, just repeated at appropriate intervals. Or in the case of track two `Now Is Here' we get the truly illuminating lyrical couplet of "Now is here, here is now". Profound stuff indeed.

But really this is not music with a message unless the message is to relax, biding a while in Clannads musical ambience until reality comes along to intrude upon your repose. And as such it delivers it's message very well indeed as the soporific strains of a variety of instruments intertwine quite pleasantly to produce a gentle listen and an experience that does open up with repeated listens, the small and rather dainty melodies beguiling in their fragility.

I was a BIG fan of the ROS series when my local PBS station played it in the mid-eighties. I had wanted to track down the soundtrack back then but I didn't have enough information to do it. I found this album after becoming a fan of Celtic music in the mid '90s. The music is just as hauntingly melodic as I remember it. Great for nostalga trips!!!!

You have to be familiar with the 'Robin Of Sherwood' TV series to fully appreciate Clannad's 'Legend', but the music stands well alone. A mixture of Celtic and Olde English folk styles, only the final track could be considered a 'song' in the recognised sense, the remainder of the album is more a series of conveyed moods.
Incidentally, both the previous comments are incorrect. 'Legend' accompanied the Goldcrest Films/HTV production of 'Robin Of Sherwood', originally broadcast by the ITV network in the U.K.

This is a great, short, sweet but haunting CD, one of the rare soundtracks with original background music that you can actually listen to. It is a great soundtrack because it doesn't even sound like one. Battles is one of my favourite tracks in general and, like most of them, it is too short. One of the rare but dazzling examples of how Clannad can turn wild. Lady Marian goes together with other harp instrumentals we know like A gentle Place, Faery Queen and Fonn Mharta. It is indeed exciting to listen to so opposite moods like rage in Battles and melancholy in Strange Land. These two perfectly go together in a track Now is Here with a "folky" traditional tune not so characteristic for Clannad. I was also surprised to hear not-really-Clannad accordion in Ancient Forest. This is not a Robin Hood sountrack - it is a Clannad soundtrack.

This soundtrack brings back very fond memories of the show. However even if you haven't seen the show the simple music is beautiful. The songs are good at invoking images of spring forest and the sleepy villages of yore.

Here is a collection of music played during the episodes of Robin of Sherwood. This provides a coherent theme for the album, and Clannad takes advantage of this to evoke the Britain of the 13th century. It is entirely effective, and works well even without the entrancing visual imagery of the TV show. This album, like others by Clannad, submerges you in a forest of entrancing music.
