Eve

Áine Minogue

In cart Not available Out of stock

MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW:
Eve is a beautiful album of original music written and composed by award-winning singer and songwriter Aine Minogue, showcasing her extraordinary skill and talent playing the Celtic harp, accompanied by her stirring vocals and fellow 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. The songs are intended to reflect the many different interpretations of Eve, the first woman. The result is as wondrous as a starry sky, and highly recommended for personal and public library music collections.

TOP 25 AURAL AWAKENINGS: "Áine Minogue is a renowned traditional Irish harpist, singer and composer whose album "Eve" temps the ears with its enchanting blend of wispy lyrical vocals, Celtic instrumentation and other minimal textures for an overall listening experience that is whimsically lulling." 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.

Aine's latest CD.
Parents' Choice Approved Award 2012! (All Ages)

"Aine Minogue.... a balm for our times." BOSTON GLOBE

As an artist, Aine Minogue has long explored Ireland's themes and mysteries, sharing its very essence in her vocal and instrumental melodies. Experience the power of these songs to let go of that which we've lost-- and to move toward the joys that lie ahead.

This collection offers a "companion in music"--eleven songs that carry the power of Celtic music to help us return to everyday life.

Meant to be heard often, this inspired sequence includes Celtic keening--an improvisational ode to the women of yore who carried the grief for their entire communities, "Deus Meus"__ a fusion of Latin and Gaelic healing music, a moving interpretation of the classic "Carolan's Farewell to Music," the uplifting "Awakening," and other original compositions.

“One of the most popular creators of post-Enya Celtic new age music, Aine Minogue delights her fans album after album by focusing on the more ethereal aspects of Irish and Scottish songs. Here she trains her mellifluous soprano on downcast lullabies, laments, and hymns, creating a cathartic sadness that opens the heart. Minogue has made an album that is not only musically valid but useful as a tool for grieving.” CD UNIVERSE

"The sheer beauty of this music, most of it exploring religious themes, is almost haunting" GLOBAL RHYTHM

"With a haunting and soothing voice, Aine Minogue’s "Celtic Lamentations" is perfect for that moment when you need to sit back, meditate and be calm" THE CELEBRITY CAFE
