Recorded in the warm, pure acoustic environment of Glenstal Abbey, The Virgin's Lament is a rare recording of the oldest surviving Celtic music. Nóirín Ní Riain performs these medieval Celtic religious songs, as well as women's spirituals sung in Gaelic and traditional Gregorian plainchant. The Virgin's Lament is the direct aural flowering of Nóirín's personal odyssey into traditional religious songs of the Irish language. Writes Brother Ciaran from the Glenstal Abbey: "The spiritual statement (on this recording) has evoked unprecedented response, ranging from musical excellence, to deep healing powers, to ecumenical excellence. Eleven songs.
