Aine Minogue
Celtic Lamentations
Sounds True

By Ernest Barteldes

Published January 24, 2006

Áine Minogue’s melodies possess the same softness as Enya’s, but are mercifully free of the latter’s electronic fripperies. Minogue accompanies herself on the harp, and is backed by several other traditional Celtic instruments, including uillean pipes and pennywhistle. The sheer beauty of this music, most of it exploring religious themes, is almost haunting. In “Caoimeadh na Dtri Muire,” Jesus tells his mother that she cannot shield him from his destiny, and that everyone has to “carry their own cross.”  In “Song Of The Banshee,” Minogue explores an Irish myth surrounding fear of mortality—the sound of the banshee’s singing, legend says, was a signal that death was near, and that a time of mourning was to come. Equally impressive is “Griogal Cridh,” a Gaelic song which narrates a variation on the story of Romeo and Juliet.
