Moya (Maire) Brennan helped to revolutionize Celtic music as a member of the band Clannad. This group paid homage to the musical customs of Ireland but also remained forward-looking. TWO HORIZONS continues the journey into the enchanted world of the modern Irish ballad. The music on this release falls decidedly into the New Age category, but it also maintains the underlying melodicism and delicate poetry inherent in traditional Irish music.
Songs such as "Bi Liom" feature a great deal of multi-tracking, allowing Brennan to sound like a one-woman choir. Similar to Clannad's "Theme from Harry's Game," rich harmonies abound on this piece as Brennan gently glides over the wispy keyboard accompaniment. Other tunes such as "River" and "Ancient Town" use subtle electronic backbeats. However, the focus is still on Brennan's mellifluous turns of phrase. Not surprisingly, "Harpsong" is centered on an elegant harp melody. This selection recalls the Turlough O'Carolan style of harp and is the most traditional composition on TWO HORIZONS. Lyrically, this album draws heavily from Irish folklore, but the warmth of each track is ultimately derived from Brennan's voice itself.
