From Lips of Angels ♦ Cluain Ri ♦ Behind the Veil ♦ Drumalee Reflections ♦ Only Loving Eyes Can See ♦ Sibylline ♦ Sola Gratia ♦ Melancholy Moon ♦ Healing Hands ♦ Tears in Your Heart ♦ Beyond the Edge ♦ Anam Cara ♦ Slieveland Angels
This collection begins with the eloquent From Lips of Angels, inspired by its subject, covered in much literature on angels, such as the writings of Lorna Byrne, Theresa Cheung, Jacky Newcomb and many others.
The ethereal slide guitar and crystal tones of Sibylline suggest the flowing robes and oracle of a Sibyl –a female prophetess of ancient mythology.
Sola Gratia (Latin for ‘Only Grace’) wishes to impart a taste of the calm reassurance of Divine mercy.
Someone mentioned that listening to Behind the Veil feels like a journey through the tunnel of light (the sensation of which was the very intention of this piece), and that the shimmering lake reflection effect of Melancholy Moon was lovely.
The movement of Slieveland Angels could invoke a picture of angels in flight; may we know that they are always near.
The tune Anam Cara, its title meaning ‘soul companion’ in Gaelic, is dedicated to the book of the same name by Irish mystic, John O’Donohue. Irish writer, Colm Keane, found this piece melodic, elevating and inspiring.
Just like Cluain Ri, meaning ‘King’s Meadow’ in Gaelic, this music is a tribute to beautiful Ireland, which has contributed greatly to its inspiration.
