Noirin Ni Riain and the monks of Glenstal Abbey continue a thousand- year-old tradition: giving voice to mystical works of praise; inviting us to link heaven and earth. With startling clarity, Ni Riain recreates the nearly-lost sean nos style of Gaelic singing, drawing from a deep spiritual well with origins in Ireland's most treasured tradition. Noirin Ni Riain's angelic soprano reaches down into our hearts -- a healing presence that lingers long after the music has faded. Steeped in mysticism, Stor Amhran is a vivid mirror of Ireland's most enduring musical landscape. Eighteen traditional songs accompanied by pipe organ, Indian harmonium, and tin whistle, recorded live in the acoustically perfect environment of Glenstal Abbey.
