The high pipes give the forlorn "Ailein Duinn," the theme from Rob Roy, extra Celtic flavour as does Meav's Celtic vocals. The title is Celtic for "brown-haired Alan." He has drowned apparently, and she sings, translated in English, "If your pillow is the sand/If your bed is the seaweed/If the fish are your bright candles/If the seals are your watchmen/I'd drink, though all abhor it/Of your heart's blood after your drowning." Devoted or twisted, I don't know.
"I Dreamt I Dwelt in Marble Halls" is the same traditional song covered by Enya on her Shepherd Moons album. David Agnew's oboe and the string section make this different from her countryfolk's rendition, and she hits those high notes with as much aplomb as Enya. A dream of a princess who's waited on hand and foot, courted, but nothing elates her more than her being loved the same by her dear one.
"She Moved Through The Fair" is another traditional song, covered by Charlotte Church on her sophomore album. Meav's rendition sports light drums and oboe and chant vocals by the choral group Aontas.
Next up is "Solveig's Song", the tragic final piece from Edvard Grieg's epic Peer Gynt, of the woman Gynt left behind who keeps waiting for him and is now an old woman. David Agnew's oboe. The poignancy of this song is told: "The winter may pass and the spring disappear/The spring disappear/The summer too will vanish and then the year/And then the year/But this I know for certain: you'll come back again/You'll come back again." Boy, does Meav hit that high note inbetween verses! The second best song here.Read more ›

My husband loves all the Celtic Woman singers and performers and really enjoyed this disk, too.Published 13 months ago by Susan Kite
Meav has the voice of an angel. She's wonderful when she sings with Celtic Woman, but this album shows she's amazing by herself, too. The song selection is great.Published on December 3, 2013 by R. Smith
Meav has the most clearest tone to her voice, it is amazing. The song selection is mostly slow moving, and richly arranged, much like her work with Anuna. Read morePublished on June 24, 2011 by cavedog

This is now one of my favorite CD's. This one puts Celtic Woman to shame!!! She has such a lovely voice, and is wonderful to listen to. I am now going to buy her other two CD's.Published on May 28, 2006 by Jen N
