about

Music based on Stephen Lawhead's "Silver Hand – Book 2 of the Song Of Albion."

What if there was a place beyond time, a place where icy crystalline streams played across heather-covered hills, where the sun shone with such power and majesty and brilliance that a holly leaf and a willow trunk gleamed with the bright light of Joy? And at the heart of it all was a song – a song the like of which has never been heard in our world, but is known in our hearts?

Come to Albion. Albion – the very name entices, speaks healing into our wounded land and broken spirits, calls to our souls, resonates with that deep unspeakable longing C.S. Lews named as sehnsuct.

Here are songs from that secret land, Albion. Songs that touch a forgotten place, a place obscured by civilization and its discontents. Here is all the power and mystery of the Celtic mythos, a musical excursion that will lift your soul and spirit out of the humdrum and into the infinite, the precincts of felicity, where vast vistas of glory open out into forever. – Jan P. Dennis

Music Review –

The second release inspired by Stephen Lawhead's fantasy trilogy Songs of Albion, is a rare multifaceted jewel. Dunning (Nightnoise) on flute, John Cunningham (Silly Wizard) on fiddle, and Johnson with his dreamy, evocative synthesizer washes create an utterly beguiling musical landscape drenched in Celtic imagery and themes. This is New Age instrumental music with power and vision, spiced with haunting solos and the unmistakable sound of uilleann pipes.

Track Name: Swift Sure Hand
All praise to the Swift Sure Hand
for his deliverance at need;
All praise to the Word-Giver
for Truth's Three Pillars;
All praise to the Living Light
for Wisdom's holy fire!

Here am I upon my rock,
and her I stay:
I will be unmoved until you,
Unmoved Mover, move in me;
I will keep silent until you,
Living Word, speak to me,
In the darkness will I sit,
until you, Light of Life, illumine me.

Grant me now, Gifting Giver,
three things I seek:
Knowledge of the thing I do not know;
Wisdom to understand it;
Truth to discern it rightly.

– Tegid Tathal, Chief Bard
