Album Notes
Lowena is the third CD from Navan, and the long-awaited first for the group as a trio. This CD brings all new material to the harmonies and pure vocals that set Navan apart from other groups in the Celtic world.

Brian O'Donovan of WGBH in Boston has this to say about the group and the new album:


How do you describe the music of Navan? Yes, technical terms exist. Exquisite... acappella... harmony singing in all of the Celtic languages. But Navan is a classic case of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts. There is something about the blend of human voices without the burden or rhythm of instruments in accompaniment that affects us spiritually. This is the sound we popularly think of as that of angels.

In hearing the songs of Navan on this, their third CD, you will be transported to other places, other times. The sound is ancient, elemental. It is a continuum of experience for Celtic peoples through the ages seeking guidance and comfort in lives tied to the land but looking at the moon. The songs are food for the spirit, a warm drink on a cold night in front of a welcome fire; the smile of a stranger; the softness of a baby’s cheek; the sadness of remembrance; and yes, the blended voice of the angels, wherever they may be.

I don't buy CDs ordinarily but I sure as hell bought this one!
Heard the NPR piece quite by accident--sitting in my car--had me in tears (not an easy accomplishment)--by the time I got to a computer to order a copy from CD baby the shelves were already emptied. I finally got it when the next shipment came in. A transporting experience, listening to these voices. First new CD in over a year. The last one was a gift, an underground recording of the Dalha Lama doing a healing chant. Lowena is equally transporting.


very beautiful

David Marcelle

This one is a definite winner!


Very pleased with the music and CD Baby's service.
Thanks for a great CD. The music was inspirational.


Beautiful, haunting, just wonderful
This is the most beautiful and haunting music of the Gaelic tradition. I heard Navan on NPR and bought the Lowena CD immediately. More than a treat, listening to this music is a wonderful experience.

Annie Wellington

Absolutely transfixing!
LOWENA is an extraordinary CD in the Celtic genre. The music reaches deep into my soul, and transfixes me. It is primordial, spiritual, and deeply moving, as it touches and soothes all those ancient archetypal qualities we all have buried deep inside! The harmony of voice and beauty of the Gaelic languages is superb, and capable of bringing me to a place of such peace... Lowena is a must have CD.


I was told immediately it was back ordered, and surprised when it arrived within days.

Alan Bieber

Wonderful music and CDBaby is great to buy from.
Navan is one of the best groups of a capella singers whom I have ever had the pleasure of hearing. I would highly recommend their music to anyone who likes vocal music or Celtic music. Their scholarship and authenticity are admirable, and their musicianship is incredible.

Carol K

Wonderfully ethereal. Cross between chant and traditional folksongs.
In preparation for a trip to Ireland this spring, I ordered this CD. I enjoy the melancholy harmony presented and am glad they chose to leave the vernacular intact. When I first heard their music on NPR, it reminded me of Ainu music--indigenous to Japan.
