Dulcissime - Carl Orff - Rafael Fruhbeck De Burgos*, Wilhelm Pitz, New Philharmonia Orchestra And Ch band recorded The Widening Gyre in Nashville to collaborate with long time friends and guests to bring this album to the world.
After nearly 35 years together—the longest running lineup of founding members in Irish music—the members of Altan were ready to flex their musical boundaries when they started talking to Compass co-founder Garry West about the direction for their latest project.
The circle has expanded over the years, and our new album celebrates those relationships. The list of guests on The Widening Gyre is as diverse as it is impressive. Yeats poem about being a bird on the sea, an appropriate metaphor for a band who has musically and physically crossed the Altantic in the making of the album. He is a true artist with that fiddle!
He can create so many amazing variations on that instrument, it's unreal! The Widening Gyre straddles time as it manages to remind listeners of the ancient bond between Irish and Appalachian music while at the same time breaking new ground through collaborations between masters of American The Triple T - Altan - The Widening Gyre music and Super Tony - Robbie Williams - Under The Radar Volume I (File, Album) music.
It has an innate energy. The Widening Gyre. Yeats poem The Second Coming. The Maggie in the title is Maggie Moore, who makes, apparently, really nice pancakes. This version was learned from the wonderful fiddling of Catriona MacdonaldAlasdair Fraser and all the students at the Valley of the Moon Fiddle School in California.

Yeats, feeling rejected, imagines in the poem that as gulls they could both flee and escape reality, and live together forever. Here, we have asked Mary Chapin Carpenter to share the beautiful lyrics, for which our friend, Fiona Black, has composed the music. It is here you will find happiness, health, love and gold.
In other words, a Utopia. We are still trying to find this The Triple T - Altan - The Widening Gyre The Lurgy Stream song The Lurgy Stream takes its name from a river in Donegal and mentions several places in the eastern part of the county. It is quite a popular song, sung to different melodies. His older brother, Richie, came up with the title.
As the record was recorded in Nashville, the tune was written with a bluegrass feel in mind.
