Hi

at the moment in my head is "home again" by Blackmore's Night. A band, that is really popular in Germany, they sing irish folk and music of the renaissance and the middle ages, very nice. Does anybody know them???

But I always have any music in my head (and often sing or at least hum it) often a song by Moya or Enya or what I have heard at last. The last time often the song "sailing away" from Two Horizons. It is wonderfull, isn't it? I like most the (gaelige?) refrain.

Greetings, Fjalladís :mrgreen:

I have both "Past Times with Good Company" and "Ghost of a Rose". I have always been very fond of Ritchie Blackmore's guitar playing, even when he was with Deep Purple and Rainbow.

I would say that any Clannad fan would like Blackmore's Night, especially if you like mid-period Clannad and maybe some of their later stuff, too ("Journey's End" would make a perfect BN song).

I have three of their albums but I think it was just alright. Altan is a much better band which I think is closest to Clannad in sound. Maybe they grew up together .

Ritchie Blackmore is a great guitarist, but Mark Kelly and Daithi Sproule are also great guitarists. Also, Ciaran Curran does a fantastic job on the bouzouki. Of course, Altan has some great fiddle players! 8)

If you like Altan, you would probably also like Lunasa, Swap, Dervish, Sharon Shannon, or Vasen.

"Banba óir...."

Only I can never remember all the Gaelic lyrics, so I have the same one phrase of it going round in my head :!:

Well... I like Altan but I really don't like Dervish... :mrgreen: Their music is kind of 'messy' if you know what I mean, it's like they each play just for themselves and don't really listen to each other. Actually, their cds remind me mostly of a session in a pub, it's just a session on the stage... And I really don't like Cathy's voice.. but that's personal taste I guess.

But I agree with you on Ciarán Curran, he's a great bouzouki player. I love 'Ciaran's capers' on the Altan cd 'Runaway Sunday'.
I have no hobbies, only obsessions... :mrgreen:

I've been singing 'Why Worry?' all day. No idea why really - listening to 'Two Horizons' now, so seem to have finally dislogded it :mrgreen:

Inside my head today...

Postby cantilena91 » Thu Sep 30, 2004 4:35 pm

As one of my friends sent a brilliant boys choir album "Free" today, one song remains in my head even still! A wonderful piece called Voca Me... And the boys choir is called Libera!

Boys choirs have often a wonderful sound, the voices are so pure and clear, like come directly from heaven, but in the professional choirs the children were often drilled at a very young age. Something like Childrenswork?
Nevertheless, they sound fantastic, I have a cd from an Oxford Boys Choir, they are so fabulous...

I'm singing 'Soul Searcher' at the moment. But that's probably because I've heard it about four times today :lol:
