Celtic Music on the Viola da Gamba

Jordi Savall continues his exploration of music from Scotland and Ireland in volume of two of the Celtic Viol series. He is joined by harpist Andrew Lawrence King and bodhrán player Frank McGuire in a performance that perfectly captures the spirit of the music—at once beautiful and touching.

Dancing in the Isles

The distinguished American ensemble Musica Pacifica turns to England, Scotland, and Ireland for their latest recording on the Solimar label. The program draws from a variety of baroque and traditional pieces which receive excellent readings. Musica Pacifica’s new recording was a pleasure to listen to.

“Dancing in the Isles” may be purchased from CD Baby.
