Mythology

"Voices call from the old days, Voices tell from the past, Ancient laws and ancient old ways to recast." (Voices opening number from Mythology)

Mythology is the latest show from Celtic Thunder and the show's 9th special for Public Television. Filmed on location at the Helix Theater in Dublin (where they filmed their debut show in 2007), it's fitting that Celtic Thunder have chosen to return to their roots in order to film this musical odyssey back to the heart of the Celt. The opening number for Mythology is an original piece called Voices written expressly as an opener for the new show. Voices, quoted above, is collaboration between Celtic Thunder Musical Director David Munro and world-renowned composer Brendan Graham, who also composed the international hit "You Raise Me Up."

The core theme of Mythology is found in the opening number "Voices call from the old days, Voices tell from the past, Ancient laws and ancient old ways to recast." It's the story of the Celts in Ireland, their legends, their history and their stories. It's the lifeblood of modern day Ireland and it's influences from our Celtic past, which are still carried in each one of us as part of who we are and where we come from.

The set of Mythology is big; it's dramatic and imposing. The new and the old combine. Modern catalyst images are projected onto ancient standing stones, a giant Celtic cross takes center stage and the tempo of the music is strongly echoed in the theatrical and moody lighting. Mythology is by far Celtic Thunder's most impressive production to date, bar none.

The road to Mythology began in 2007 when Sharon Browne, the Celtic Thunder's creator and producer, set out to produce a show with real Celts performing an eclectic mix of songs ranging from the traditional to international hits and some original pieces along the way. That show and each subsequent Celtic Thunder show have raised the bar for Irish music and theatrical productions worldwide. Mythology has raised that bar yet again, even by Celtic Thunder standards. It is without down their most extravagant and spectacular show ever and by far the biggest undertaking of producer Sharon Browne's and Musical Director David Munro's careers to date.

Mythology comprises of six diverse performers who are each a powerhouse in both their solo and ensemble songs, backed of course by the dynamic Celtic Thunder Band. And while Celtic Thunder shows are known for the use of dramatic combinations of lighting, choreography and set design, Peter Barnes, the Set & Lighting Director for Mythology has upped the ante and has created a stage that surpasses anything Celtic Thunder has done heretofore.

Celtic Thunder have now toured the US and Canada, coast to coast, six times, performing at over 500 shows and in doing so have sold well in excess of half-a-million concert tickets.

I have every Celtic Thunder cd and have seen them in concert twice, so I am a huge fan. This cd does is just as good if not better than some previous ones. My favorite songs are Voices, Rocky Road to Dublin, Katie and My Land but there is not one song I don't like which is saying something for any cd these days. Lastly I thought they might lose something when Paul Byrom left the group but with the addition of Emmet Cahill all is well, he's fabulous!!

GREAT ALBUM. ESPECIALLY ENJOYED GEORGE DONALDSON SINGING 'SCARLET RIBBONS', AND KEITH HARKINS SINGING 'TEARS OFHERCULES', BUT ALL ARE GOOD. EMMET DID A BEAUTIFUL JOB SINGING 'DANNY BOY' I WOULD RATE THIS ALBUM A 5.

I was pleasantly surprised when I bought this album, (thinking that the band has gone slightly downhill over the years) but it's really really good. Some of my favorites are Scarlet Ribbons, The Rocky Road to Dublin, Hunter's Moon, Carolina Rua, Katie and Turning Away. I love Colm Keegan's demanding voice in Katie, a wonderful new addition to the band. Emmett Cahill and Neil Byrne have become favorites of mine, too, and still the three originals, George Donaldson, Ryan Kelly and Keith Harkin still remain as defined and characteristic as ever.
Love it! If you buy it, I doubt that you will be disappointed!

This one makes 'Heritage' and 'Celtic Thunder' sound typical.
Not just one track. Track after Track.

Do play this on a full range Home theater and not some wimpy 'Pod' speakers.
This one kicks _

This album is most likely one of the best Celtic Thunder has done so far. It is the perfect mix of Irish and (not-so-irish) songs that make it very fun to listen to.

However, Do NOT BUY from Amazon! The deluxe version includes twice as many songs for 24.99. Here is the song list for the deluxe version.

Disc 1:
1. Voices
2. Isle of Inisfreee
3. Now We Are Free
4. Scarlet Ribbons (For Her Hair)
5. The Rocky Road to Dublin
6. Carrickfergus
7. Hoe Down
8. Danny Boy
9. Hunter's Moon
10. She Moves Through the Fair
11. Carolina Rua
12. Katie
13. Turning Away
14. Tears of Hercules
15. My Land

Disc 2:
1. Galileo
2. The Lonesome Boatman and Reels
3. The Streets of New York
4. Rosa
5. Life With You
6. The Edge of the Moon
7. Always There
8. Perfect
9. I Am A Man of Constant Sorrow
10. Seven Drunken Nights
11. Summer In Dublin
12. The Grande Affaire
13. The Sounds of Silence
14. The Thunder Rolls
15. The Boys Are Back In Town

Same with the DVD, although I think it has 31 songs.

I got this for a friend in the USA who likes things Celtic, musical and actual. I have previously got her a Celtic Thunder CD and when I saw that this was being released I preordered it through Amazon. It arrived at the specified time of release packed in the usual first rate Amazon way and she loves it. Another confirmed fan of Celtic Thunder.
