On this immaculate recording, Nóirín Ní Riain – renowned for her recordings with the monks of Glenstal – recreates 19 songs in the nearly-lost sean nos Gaelic vocal style. Her singing is like a voice from heaven – of startling clarity, blissful, and evocative of profound spiritual grace. Accompanied by pipe organ, Indian harmonium, pennywhistle, and the celebrated voices of the Benedictine monks of Glenstal Abbey. Recorded on the holy feast day of Saint Ciaran, this is music steeped in Irish mysticism – music that reverberates long afterward in the listener's mind.
