Winter Sky

by Stonecircle

Celtic-fusion music for a Winter Solstice, music of the harvest, and of moods for the winter season; celebrating the time of the year when we experience the darkness of shorter days, and yet usher in incrementally longer days as we move towards spring.

Guthorm (The Wimshurst's Machine, Italy)

Absolutely amazing music!
I first heard a track from their "Project Overseer Productions" page. The track ("My Tapestry", from their wonderful album "Alchemy") amazed me since the very first time I did hear it. I absolutely love the sound of the Harp and of the Celtic Harp and here we have wonderful harp, flute, violin/fiddle and general texture, an outstanding melody, a great talent in composition/arrangement and in play. I absolutely love this track, the atmosphere it build up and the delicate, sensual and pacific flavors. Listening to it I am set in another realm, made of good music, almost in a celtic fairytale... Great, absolutely great!
So much that I did search until I found all your CDs and bought them all (from iTunes)! :-)

With crying whistle and the rounded drive of guitar, the wail of the fiddle and moving vocals, Stonecircle casts a gorgeous melodic light over the holidays with an integrated mix of Celtic style, new age, folk and easy listening. When you're ready to put those Nat King Cole and Bing Crosby albums away for a bit, cleanse your palate with an album which is both sweet and earthy while being vital and energizing at the same time. A truly beautiful holiday disc that will be highly compatible with most musical tastes.

A real Irish Christmas CD at last!
The haunting sound of uilleann pipes and fiddle mix perfectly on this CD. The guitar is simply amazing - especially when blending with the other instruments and vocals. The soundscape created in this recording is different from almost anything I've ever heard, and certainly puts one in the spirit of the winter season. The Stonecircle sound has definitely gone more acoustic in nature (to their credit I feel), particularly with the pipes and whistles being featured more prominently. Highly recommended - especially for those not lucky enough to be in Ireland itself this Christmas!

This cd is also of great quality and I really love it.I also have Alchemy and I think that Stonecircle makes great Irish music!

If you can't be there, this is the next best!
I really like the return to acustical on this CD, and I specially liked the title song. While it is original, it's sound is authentic, yet its story is very modern and up-to-date. Stonecircle's last CD was a joy, but this production definitely shows growth...The instruments and voice blend wonderfully.
