The songs in this album take their inspiration from the work of Alexander Carmichael (1832 -1912), who spent a lifetime preserving the remarkable oral tradition of the Celtic Christians. His six volumed work is perhaps the most outstanding achievement in Celtic literature and is an invaluable source for understanding Celtic spirituality.
In these musical settings it is hoped that the listener will be ale to enter the world of early Celtic Christians i.e. God's world, a creation where everything reflects the beauty and goodness of the Creator.
