A package waiting for me when I got home from work tonight. Anne's latest CD! It's playing while I type - if you havn't got a copy ordered - you don't know what you're missing! It's brilliant.

Glad to hear so many have arrived at their destinations ... hope the US and Australian 'Catters receive theirs soon, too.
Not too late to order one or more at the advance discount price, by the way - just head for this website

And the artwork is by my talented husband. Very happy to say that it attracted all the right kind of attention at WOMEX last week.

I don't know if it came via this thread and this link, but I've had a PayPal payment from someone but no postal address. I have emailed the email address on the PayPal message but so far no reply, so I'm trying this as well. Yes, I do know the name of the person but I'm not sure whether I should put that on a public forum!
If this rings a bell, can you pm me with your address, please?

Ta!

Anne

Mine showed up Tuesday and I live in Oregon. It's delightful. My favorite track so far is the Horseman of [gaelic] and [gaelic](6). The CD is out in the car and it's raining (this is Oregon, after all).

The CD lives up to its name: many if not all of the songs have a twist in them, and take you someplace unexpected. I like that.
In a way, it seems unfair to talk about the twists -- it's like movie spoilers -- if I tell you why I liked the plot twist, I've spoiled the element of surprise for you.

A number of the tracks have been influenced by Tabster's/Anne Lister's work with prisoners. This gives it, for me, a somewhat darker flavor than some of her earlier CDs.

Some of the instruments are unusual, is it a sax? or a clarinet? I really should walk out there and get the CD. But for me, the jury is still out on that part of the band. It struck me as odd in the first track, (Little Polly Williams). I like the tune better when it has the rhythm instruments included, and it sounds like a very danceable tune.

I thought for a bit it was going to be about the woman who wrote the different color fairy books and was committed for her lifelong belief
in fairies.

More later, after I retrieve the CD and give it a few more listens.
Blessings,
Barbara

Rapaire,
I just talked to Dick (CAMSCO) Greenhaus and he said he would get in touch with Anne about carrying her CD there. In which case you will be able to call him (CAMSCO is listed in the header under Record Shop)at the 800 number and order it from him with a credit card. Or it should also be at CD Baby -- I haven't checked there yet.
Blessings,
Barbara

Um ... it's Welsh, not Gaelic! And it's mostly sax with some low clarinet (I've now had clarification on this! but for some reason my fingers typed the word "concertina" on the booklet ...missed it in all the proof-reading as of course it wasn't mis-spelled, just mis-written).

Rapaire, my esteemed SS ... head for my website and click on the (still existing) angels link and your own copy can be obtained via PayPal. But, with my current preoccupation in mind, please make sure your street address is included with the PayPal payment.

Alternatively, go to CDBaby where they have some in stock now.

Ah, yes, Welsh. Sorry. I knew that. But when I typed that, I couldn't remember if it was Welsh or Welch, and isn't it another form of Gaelic -- like Scots Gaelic, Irish Gaelic and Breton Gaelic?

Barbara

It's Welsh, and no, it's not another form of Gaelic, nor is Breton. Breton, Cornish and Welsh are sibling languages, Scots Gaelic and Irish Gaelic are sibling languages, and I suppose you could call all the languages cousins, but Welsh is never referred to as Gaelic, any more than Gaelic is referred to as Welsh. *shudder*

The CDBaby page is now officially up and working for the new album.

It is true that the dearth of vowels is found only in Welsh.

Sorry to have offended your finer sensibilities.

To me, there are similarities in those languages in that they are, none of them, pronounced even remotely like they are spelled. And I did hear, on a Celtic music program, (Fiona Ritchie; Thistle and Shamrock) Breton referred to as "a Gaelic language". Though, now that I think about it, she may have said, 'a Celtic language'.

Anyway, to return to the topic, it is a lovely CD and people should buy it, and learn how to pronounce the name of track 6.
Blessings,
Barbara

It's OK, Barbara ... I'm not offended! And we do actually have more vowels in Welsh than in English, it's just some of them look like English consonants. But I suppose talking about Welsh Gaelic is a bit like talking about German Swedish, or Portuguese Spanish.
And the pronunciation is actually far more logical than English, except that it follows its own rules rather than English ones (which is, of course, fair enough)! Which has led my nephew and my niece, who have attended Welsh medium schools from the start, to have interesting times reading and spelling English.

Still no news of my phantom purchaser, though ....

Anne

Thank you, Anne. Received it in today's mail and will listen in a few hours. It is beautifully packaged and presented. Having heard your voice on a pre-CD take, I am anticipating a great pleasure hearing this work. I wish you lots of success with it.

Just add Manx Gaelic to the Irish and Scots Gaelic "family" for completeness!

Haven't heard the CD yet Anne, Russ has them and we haven't both been at the club at the same time for a few weeks. Looking forward to it.

If we were talking about Welsh and not Anne's wonderful CD, I got this bit in a newsletter this morning:

The BBC news on 31 October had a story about a bilingual road sign in Swansea, South Wales. In English it reads "No entry for heavy goods vehicles. Residential site only." Underneath, the text in Welsh is "Nid wyf yn y swyddfa ar hyn o bryd. Anfonwch unrhyw waith i'w
gyfieithu", which may be translated as "I am not in the office at
the moment. Send any work to be translated." This was the text of
an e-mail that came back from the translation service used by staff
of Swansea council when a Welsh equivalent of the English sign was
requested. Go via http://wwwords.org?WRSC to see a picture of the
sign, which has now been taken down.

Blessings,
Barbara
