Album of the Month
The Pilgrim composed by Shaun Davey

The Pilgrim CD ArtworkSince its original release in 1984 Shaun Davey’s epic composition The Pilgrim has been one of the bestselling and most popular albums in the Tara Music Catalogue. The theme of this powerful suite is the spread of Celtic Christianity during the dark ages, when people we today call saints journeyed either as ordinary passengers from one Celtic region to another, or as voyagers into the unknown.
The saga of these hazardous sea voyages - with all their fears and exultation - is brought to life in this composition by a Scottish pipe band, Irish and Welsh harpists, Galicia gaitas, uilleann pipes, the bombardes of Brittany, two vocal soloists and a narrator together with a 120 strong choir and the orchestra. In stunning progression, players and instruments representative of the seven Celtic countries and regions - Wales, Scotland, Brittany, Ireland, the Isle of Man, Cornwall and Galicia - are highlighted against the backdrop of a classical orchestra.More Info
