Comment: Good to near very good single CD with jewel case, multi-page front notes and single page case insert from Zephyr Records, 1998. The case is clean and it shows no cracking or chipping. The case snap closure and hinges work perfectly and the disc hub is intact. The notes and insert are also clean and have no cuts, tears, pen marks or punch holes. There is a former owner name/address sticker at the left front edge of the notes. This I could not remove without damaging the notes, so there is stays. The disc shows only a tiny bit of very light surface level scratching, none of which caused any problems for me during playback.

Editorial Reviews

Review

"I absolutely ADORE Harper's Reverie (so does my roommate)! Being one of the worst critics on the face of the earth, I couldn't find one note in the entire thing that I didn't enjoy. This CD will definitely be the background music when any entertaining goes on around here! I really, really like this piece of music." -- Kathy Boyd, No String Attached, Portland, Oregon

"I am sitting here listening to the CD you sent for me to listen to and play on my radio show. I am very pleased! The quality of the music is astounding, not to mention the variety of instruments. This truly is a delightful collection of O'Carolan's music. It will definitely be getting airtime on my show." -- Melissa Hollopeter, WMTU 91.9 FM Houghton, Michigan

"I love the album...a splendid CD" -- Brett Campbell, Eugene Weekly Music and Feature Writer, Eugene, Oregon

"My response to this CD is very positive. From the tracks I have previewed and played on air I think the production values are very high. I have discussed for my listeners the personal significance of "Lord Inchiquin" in my repertoire of fiddle tunes. -- Joe Cavanagh, WHUS 91.7 FM, Storrs, Connecticut

To find a cd strictly devoted to the music of O'Carolan was delightful, but to find one crafted by such skilled musicians was simply wonderful! This is

music that will warm the hearts of any proud Irish-American, and keep the toes tapping. It's a great ode to the great man who composed these stunning pieces!

I can't express how accomplished these musicians are, and how beautiful this music is. This music is so diverse, so timeless! Run, don't walk, and get your credit card and purchase this cd!

You'll be glad you did! Thanks to Joe Et Al for creating this lovely gem of a recording! Slant!

Wonderful album, full of spirit and energy -- and nicely arranged pieces. I particularly enjoyed the combination of the hammered dulcimer and harp. It added real spark to the ensemble as it performed the O'Carolan canon. The CD will get plenty of airplay on "Profiles in Folk".

The playing is very good. I detect some classical leanings among the band. Delighted to see some unusual O'Carolan as well as the common elections. It is currenlty in light rotation on our program, "Celtic Winds" NPR member station WNCW, Spindale, North Carolina.

This Celtic CD is wonderful. Especially lovely in the morning with breakfast. It is just enchantingly beautiful music. I was also impressed with all the background information collected on Turlough O'Carolan.

Beautifully crafted. The players work well together. More than "just another" O'Carolan recording. Nice stuff. I'm giving it airplay on "Treasures of the Isles."

The ever-wonderful music of 17th Century harpist and composer, Turlough O'Carolan, is celebrated with gusto in this fine album featuring Janet Naylor and Joe Ross. Friends join in on vibrant arrangements, playing a multitude of instruments. This recording feels alive, capturing the essence of O'Carolan's delicate, yet passionate music. Favorite tunes...sparkle off the hammered dulcimer and waft from the harp strings into a fanciful spray of sound and feeling. I was prepared to hate the synthesizer, but it's used so tastefully that I really didn't notice it. This is a well-crafted, well-produced album that I'm sure would please the old blind harpist. His heart would be full to know his work still touches people three centuries after he ambled through Ireland, as one of her last great bards.

The Harper's Reverie is a...fun-loving approach to a traditional musical style. O'Carolan's compositions are pretty and whimsical, making for an album that is well-suited to cozy winter evenings. [It] is more of a showcase for Naylor than for Ross. She is a talented harpist who lives up to the challenge, and Ross' understated accompaniments suit her well.
