Just added another "something old, something new" album to my collection, as I got my copy of "Motets" by Karl Jenkins. This time no orchestras, just a cappella choir (Polyphony conducted by Stephen Layton). Most of the songs on the album are old ones, though some of them are reworked so that they now contain sacred lyrics instead of being instrumental only or having "nonsense" lyrics. With a couple of completely new compositions as well.

Pure aural bliss indeed!

A couple of more recent additions: "The Symphonic Euphonium" by David Childs & BBC National Orchestra of Wales, as well as the "brown cardboard" version of Moya's Heart Strings (aka the version with the "hidden" Harry's Game).

A great album indeed! Not only because of Moya's song, but also because of all the other tracks (the only artist that I don't like that much is Sinéad O'Connor though). The rest is just wonderful.

My most recent addition is the debut album of a group called Droichead, which consists of local musicians living here in Oulu. The group's leader Brent Ó Caiside (Brent Cassidy) is an American (with Irish heritage) lad who came to Oulu many years ago as an exchange student, then he fell in love with a local lass, stayed here in Oulu and founded both the Irish Music Society of Oulu and the annual Oulu Irish Music Festival. I attended the album launch concert on this St. Patrick's Day and obviously bought the album "Banks of Tuira" for myself as well. Lovely music indeed!

I also have this album, I am cureently listening to it and I love it! :wink: :wink: :wink:

I also have bought the first album from the french band Doolin, name of the album is... ´Doolin' :lol:

Also have 'before we change our mind' from Beoga.

Recently on a german/french tv channel (Arte) a 1-hour video from the band ´Les musiciens de Saint-Julien' has been broadcasted and I have recorded it. This video pictures the band in many locations in Ireland and playing irish songs from the 17th and 18th centuries.
These songs are all on the album 'The high road to Kilkenny' which I also just added to my CD collection...
