ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The ancients believed winter was a time of tremendous spiritual power.

In winter the Sun journeyed through the underworld gathering the secrets of life and death, until its verdant rebirth in spring.

Join master musician Áine Minogue in her collaboration with the late Scottish fiddler/producer Johnny Cunningham in their musical journey across the the Celtic countries honoring the Winter Solstice with these dark and beautiful selections that celebrate this season of contemplative reflection and the Inner Fire.

REVIEWS OF "To Warm the Winter's Night" :

.... a spellbinding portrait of midwinter's moods and textures. Her harp is austere, never glissando-glossy or aimlessly lush.'

Familiar melodies such as "Noel Nouvelle" and "Greensleeves" are delivered gracefully, with gorgeous string and oboe support from Cunningham and Kathy Halverson. Minogue's shy whisper of a soprano delivers a lulling Gaelic version of "Silent Night" and the ethereal "Darkest Midnight."

Spun together with brief snatches of spoken narration, this is a tender holiday masterpiece."
THE BOSTON GLOBE (One of the top 10 folk albums of the year)
