A Celtic Tale is a magnificently orchestrated Celtic fantasy soundtrack inspired by the beautiful and tragic medieval Irish legend of Deirdre brings together the best elements of Celtic folk, classical, ambient and film music.

Both the album and the legend reflect many aspects of love and sorrow. Though she is betrothed to a king, Deirdre finds her true love; she and her lover are exiled.
The idea for a narrated version of A Celtic Tale came from several sources, immediately after we released the recording of the music. But who could do vocal and emotional justice to the dramatic text, not to mention pronounce all those guttural, consonant-laden Gaelic proper names? Not only could Fiona pronounce all the names correctly, her beguiling Scots brogue would animate the story with the authentic inflection and cadence of the original oral tradition. The score brings together the best elements of Celtic folk, symphonic, and ambient recordings, and sets a glorious new standard for popular Celtic music. A wide array of Celtic folk instruments - fiddle, tin whistle and flute, guitar and mandolin, Uillean and Highland pipes, wirestrung harp, concertina and bodhran, with all their bite and pungent overtones - are here surrounded with the harmonic richness, color, and power of the orchestra. The soulful blasting of the highland pipes, flat out against the full strains of the orchestra is another highlight. The Legend of Deirdre is a traditional Irish tale, at least a thousand years old, containing all the elements of similar myths from cultures around the world--magic, prophecy, beauty, fate, faith, romantic love, brotherly love, war, and transcendent death.
