This milestone collaboration, recorded in Moscow and New York in 1987, was the first album of original music created by Americans and Russians together. The Paul Winter Consort's western harmonies and Afro-Brazilian rhythms floating over the ancient circle songs and village chants revitalized by the dynamic Dmitri Pokrovsky Singers make this into an energetic, reverberating layering of sound.
Joined by the Paul Winter Consort, the legendary Irish soprano Nóirín Ní Riain transofrms the centuries-old Celtic sean-nos singing style into a contemporary expression of beauty and completeness.
A double album's worth of music celebrating 20 years of the Paul Winter Consort's Winter Solstice Celebrations!
