I love IONA! This is one album that I had not bought, mostly because I had all the songs on studio albums. BIG mistake! This live recording is absolutely wonderful. So glad I finally purchased it!

I have only listen to this CD once. I just got it yesterday. It's already one of my favorites. The orchestra sounds beautiful. Great music selection. I've shared Iona with a couple of friends and my daughter who doesn't like any of my music. Everybody likes it! Where do I sign up for the fan club?

"The All Souls Orchestra" was founded in 1972 as a collection of Christian classical musicians from several professional orchestras including Glyndelebourne, BBC Concert, & BBC Symphony. In 1997 their conductor Noel Tredinnick suggested to "Iona" a collaboration to expand Iona's unique sound while promoting their shared faith. On May 29, 1999 at the Royal Festival Hall in London the 2 groups came together to celebrate Iona's 10th anniversary & to record this fine CD.

I have a very good professional stereo system that can reveal hidden sounds within a CD or LP. Therefore in most of the songs the orchestral is in the background & the strings intermix with the keyboards. The woodwinds & brass come out more in certain sections adding color & depth to the music. The CD's inner notes states that Iona was "careful in their arrangements to retain the essential atmosphere of Iona's sound, whilst giving scope for the orchestra to enhance & extend the music into previously unexplored territories." In one particular song "Lindisfarne" the orchestra creates a Mahler 1st symphony 1st movement nature effect that at first listen one doesn't know what Iona song is coming up. This song is the major highlight of the CD with the most expansion of 2 very talented groups giving meaning to the title of the CD "Woven Cord".

What is the Iona sound? In a past review I wrote the following:

...the progressive sound of "Yes", the craftsmanship of "Happy the Man", the jazz & soul of "Van Morrison", the Irish Scottish gigs of "Silly Wizard", the beautiful haunting female voice of...well, not as strange as "Lisa Gerrard", maybe more like "Enya".
