ANNA RAINE - CD ALBUM.
ANCIENT PATHS -

songs and celtic blessings from the island of Lindisfarne.'

My first solo album is here at last! Martin Neil has produced it and provided much encouragement as well as bringing a creative approach to the recording.

I've included some of my 'signature' pieces but also written songs of my own. Some of you will recognise familiar words from the Complines in 'Celtic Daily Prayer' drawn from Carmina Gadelica and other traditional sources. Here they are set to my own music which has emerged over the years of saying and singing these night-time prayers with Joel and Martha.

I hope you will want to play this album often and that it will capture something of the rhythm of the tides, the sounds of the island and also its stillness.

The album is available at 12 per copy. Postage rates will be standard for padded envelope and first-class stamp/air-mail.
