Editorial Reviews

Product Description


Challenging and cerebral, Prophecy's 10 gemstones will tap at your subconscious long after first hearing. Renaissance musicianship. Damn fine. -- Siobhan Long, Irish Times, April 11, 2002

McKeown is remarkable - blowing away any misconceived notion or preconceptions of what this genre has come to define. -- Lisa Gunter, Tacoma Reporter

Prophecy - so many brilliant moods...swelling to tsunamic crescendos and falling to pin drop silences of spooky guitar loops. -- Frank Goodman,, April 2002

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Daniel J. Hamlow HALL OF FAME on January 25, 2004
Format: Audio CD
On 24 January, I attended a double-bill concert at San Juan College's Henderson Fine Arts Center. The first act was the Celtic flute group Flook. The second part of this concert was by Susan McKeown and the Chanting House, consisting of her guitarist and bassist. Most of the songs were taken from her 2002 album Prophecy. The flyer was quick and right to point out the fallacy of pigeonholing her in the Celtic category, as she incorporates folk, rock, jazz, and blues in her music. There are multiple themes of faith, wished-for-peace, wished-for-fulfillment, all with a background of Irish culture.
Songs of searching for faith or regaining faith embody two songs. "Be Brave, Love Be Strong" sports a folky guitar and some trumpets, and in this case, celebrates the gaining of previously lost faith. Seeking to understand and reconcile one's pain with some faraway god is key to "Seven Cold Glories."
The melodic and upbeat "River" was performed at the concert. ANd here, one can not only hear ex-10,000 Maniac Natalie Merchant singing with her, but the names of Irish rivers. The river here is symbolized as a healing power from the effects of war. Given Ireland's history of war, first against Britain and then between North and South, this song is apropos. "Bind us in friendship so rage will never rise again" applies not only to Ireland but elsewhere as well.
Introspective songs like "Chances Are" are with some jazz inflections what with the piano, bass, and trumpet. The pain elicited by memories and hindsight is given with "I dream an old woman's dreams, filled with memories and might-have-beens.

I cannot think of a finer voice or more eloquent interpreter on stages today. Every song in this collection will grow in your heart and soul. Susan's voice is truly an instrument, with its purity and sensitivity and range of expression. She has a gorgeous vibrato but she doesnt overuse it the way so many singers do; the rest of the time we hear the sheer beauty and clarity of her straight tone. If you have a chance, see her live -- she is simply getting better every year.
