From the recording The Twilight Realm
Music of the otherworld is said to be amazing – these creatures were believed to produce music of superior quality. It’s interesting to note the number of tunes in Irish traditional music that have the word “fairy” in them (e.g. “The Fairy Hornpipe,” “The Fairy Reel,” “The Fairy Queen,” etc.). To me, there’s a sense of procession, of something coming from a distance; you’re allowed to observe for a while, and then it fades away and you’re not sure if you ever saw it at all. One of my top five tunes of all time!
