Eve : Eve

In cart Not available Out of stock
$17.99

In a stirring departure from her past recordings, acclaimed Celtic harpist, vocalist, composer and arranger Aine Minogue will surprise – and soothe – listeners across the world with her new album entitled “Eve.”

Featuring a signature “fragile, lilting voice” throughout, Minogue’s fifteenth solo album contains 12 tracks that highlight her mesmerizing vocals, elegantly accompanied by her graceful play of the harp and skillful talents of renowned musicians Eugene Friesen on cello and strings; Jon Evans on bass, keyboards, percussion, guitar and mandolin; Seamus Egan on Irish whistles; Billy Novick on clarinet; and Alistair Halliday on harmony vocals.

A first for Minogue, the album is a compelling compilation of all original music written and composed by the award-winning singer and songwriter. It offers a captivating collection of emotive and expressive songs including “Love’s Sweet Refrain,” “Warrior or Healer,” “Song of the Lark,” “Before the World Was Made” and “The Garden.”

According to Minogue, inspiration for her new album, with its striking vocal, rather than instrumental, prominence, has its origins in what she describes as the “many definitions and varied manifestations of Eve” ranging from an “archetypical version as the mother of humanity or ‘Biblical Eve,’” as Minogue notes, to “a theatrical ‘Hollywood Eve’ version as portrayed by the collage of feminine images in the 1950 Academy Award-winning movie ‘All About Eve.’”

Minogue says that the album’s opening track, which shares the same title as the movie, was written during a viewing of the “exceptional and influential” film and that its lyrics, like those of the other 11 songs, “convey my own experience or relationship with Eve; who she is or what she is, who she may be or what she may be.”

She adds, however, that “the lyrics also enable or encourage, or perhaps empower, listeners, both women and men, to think about or appreciate their own views or beliefs about Eve, as well; who she was or what she was, who she can be or what she can be.”

To Warm The Winter's Night

Áine Minogue

In cart Not available Out of stock

BOSTON GLOBE ...Familiar melodies such as "Noel Nouvelle" and "Greensleeves" are delivered gracefully, with gorgeous string and oboe support from Cunningham and Kathy Halverson. Minogue's shy whisper of a soprano delivers a lulling Gaelic version of "Silent Night" and the ethereal "Darkest Midnight...

.... a spellbinding portrait of midwinter's moods and textures. Her harp is austere, never glissando-glossy or aimlessly lush.

...Spun together with brief snatches of spoken narration, this is a tender holiday masterpiece...

THE PATRIOT LEDGER ...a musical treasure...

THE IRISH ECHO ...a haunting and beautiful creation.... on the of the most unusual, original and beautiful Christmas (or should I say Holiday) Albums to appear in a long time...

FOLK ALMANAC ...One of the flat out prettiest Christmas albums to tumble down the chimney in a long time.... This is a soft masterpiece; ancient yet fresh, always lovely, always true to the warm spirits of this cold season...

Circle Of The Sun

Áine Minogue

In cart Not available Out of stock

BILLBOARD MAGAZINE ...Celtic singer Áine Minogue is quickly outstripping any comparisons to Enya, but that's still a good place to start. Minogue's ethereal voice caresses her Gaelic lyrics like a breeze through Irish mists, but her sound is more organic, mixing her own Celtic harp with acoustic guitars, cellos, fiddles, flutes, and percussion from Irish bodhrans to Indian tablas. On "Máire Mhór," she gets earthy with some didgeridoo, funky plucked cello, and African djembe. ...Áine Minogue is close enough to her Celtic sources to be nourished by them, but not so close that they root her to the spot....

LA TIMES ....blends traditional sounds with a cross cultural blend of live and studio textures....a musically compelling album.....

SONGWRITER'S MONTHLY ...exquisite Celtic music that encompasses the old and the new in a jaunt through the seasons. Very highly recommended.....

LA TIMES
....blends traditional sounds with a cross cultural blend of live and studio textures....a musically compelling album.....

DENVER POST
....exotic rhythms behind her whispery soprano..most attractive....

NEWARK STAR LEDGER
...Minogue is a harpist and producer from County Tipperary, equally adept at shimmering new age or explosive percussion tracks.....

NAPRA REVIEW
...a super offering not just for Celtic fans, but for aficionados of ethereal female vocals as well....

DIRTY LINEN
...lively and percussive, while at the same time it opens doors to contemplation....an unusual combination that the Irish native handles well......

MISSISSIPPI PRESS
..it is the way each piece confounds expectations that gives this album its considerable charm....

IRISH EDITION
...her silky voice sensually envelops the melodies against a patchwork quilt of all that is appealing in Celtic music today.....if you like this music, you'll love this album.....

PATRIOT LEDGER, BOSTON... 
impressive....Minogue's singing is passionate, pure and respectful, ranging from mournful expressions to whispers...contemporary almost jazzy quality...lovely emotional instrumentals.....

DAILY SOUTHTOWN, CHICAGO ....takes on a meditative stillness that leaves dancing behind.......

The Record (Waterloo Region) Entertainment, Saturday Robert Reid Aine Minogue's "Circle of the Sun" (RCA/BMG) should be at the top of everybody's buying lists. Circle of the Sun is Minogue's second release since she emigrated to New England from her home in County Tipperary. It follows her superb debut "Between the Worlds." An accomplished harpist with a haunting voice, Minogue is one of the most exciting of Ireland's current generation of musicians. She combines a deep understanding of traditional Celtic music with a modern musical sensibility. Circle of the Sun consists of a blend of traditional and original songs and tunes that trace the emotional contours of the Celtic calendar. While a few tracks consist of such simple arrangements as harp with guitar, cello or fiddle, most resemble what can best be described as Celtic chamber music.
