Subject: RE: New CD by Rapunzel and Sedayne!
What a welcome ray of sushine this CD is on a folk scene that seems increasingly dour and grey. Inspired arrangements guarantee to raise goosebumps while enchanting and and possessing the senses. It may not all be to my personal taste (I'm not quite sure about the banjo arrangement on some tracks, but it will probably grow on me) but, in particular, Owld Gryre Song and Riverdance rank alonside the very best British folk music that I've ever heard. It demonstrates the inestimable value of orginiality and inventiveness in folk music. All-in-all, a masterpiece.
