CLASSICAL CD of THE WEEK (17 February – 23 February)

This week’s CD of the Week, on the ABC Classics label and supplied to us by the ABC, is titled ‘No Wind at the Window – Celtic and Gaelic Sacred Melodies’, featuring pianist Catherine Strutt, with Chris Duncan on the Scottish Fiddle.

Tracks on the album range from well-known pieces like ‘Amazing Grace’, ‘Abide With Me’ and ‘Morning Has Broken’, to obscure tunes from a small Gaelic hymnbook from 1935, called simply An Laoidheadair (The Hymnal), given to Catherine by a friend.
