Gentle, spiritual celtic instrumentals Jun 2, 2002
Kildare is a Christian intrumental group with some to-flight members, including Dave Fitzgerald and Terl Bryant of highly-regarded Celtic Chrstian rockers Iona. Guys like these bring a high-level of musicianship to the project, and it pays off. Too many supposedly gentle, supposedly Celtic-influenced project end up sounding like pop albums. This one doesn't. There's almost no drums, but plenty of gently spacey uillian pipes, acoustic guitar, tin whistle and flute. In fact, I suppose you could call Kildare the Chieftains on prozac! By the way, even though it's an instrumental recording, lyrics for all the songs -- including Abide By Me, Be Still, My Soul, Lord of our Growing Years, Be Thou my Vision, and Jesus, Lover of My Soul -- are included.
