Today has been wet and windy with rain pelting the windowpanes incessantly. I like days like this one; they make me want to snuggle up in my little house, pottering and organizing, sipping cups of tea and listening to beautiful voices such as these...
Classically trained songstress Laura Wright has such a stunning voice. I love her album 'The Last Rose' from which these snippets are taken and I have been playing it almost daily since I bought it a couple of months ago. Her voice is ethereal and dreamy.
This pagan style album 'So Far' by Jeff Endemann was sent to me as a birthday gift by the artist's brother-in-law Joseph Vargo of Nox Arcana. I love every track on this album. It carries me away to the magical landscapes of Avalon and Sherwood Forest. If you have ever dreamed of living in a castle with your very own troubadour, Jeff's album is the one for you. Romantic, beguiling, powerful and poetically lyrical 'So Far' evokes the gentle spirit of England's myth and magic...and it ends with a Lullaby. Perfect.
These have been my go to albums for some months now. They are a lovely way to relax, with a glass of wine at the end of a busy day. Both albums are available on Amazon or check out the artists websites.
