Acoustic quartet Broceliande plays Celtic music from the British Isles and the Medieval and Renaissance music of the European courts, castles, and countryside.
Featuring stellar vocal and instrumental harmonies, their entrancing sound is built on the interweaving of up to four-part vocals with the lyrical music of the Celtic harp, octave mandolin, cello, guitar, flutes, whistles, percussion, harmonica, and melodeon.
This magical debut CD includes original arrangements of traditional and Early music and ranges in feel from driving, danceable Celtic beats to haunting, atmospherically lovely harp-based ballads. Their lyrics, including some in Medieval French and Portuguese, speak of love and longing, quests and revels, magic and transformation, in an evocative style in the same vein as Loreena McKennitt, Clannad, and Alan Stivell.
