Most widely held works by Arty McGlynn
The Celts by Enya( Recording )

8 editions published between 1986 and 1992 in Undetermined and English and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

THE CELTS is the 1992 re-release of a 1987 album simply titled ENYA, containing 15 selections originally composed for a BBC series of the same name. Although a number of the tracks sound dated, several others, including "To Go Beyond (II)" are notable for how they locate the origins of the classic Enya sound, far removed from earlier Celtic efforts. A tidy, dreamlike piece, "Epona," is about the Horse Goddess, closely connected to Rhiannon, whose birds are said to awaken the dead. The tale of a rebellious ancient queen who poisoned herself, "Boadicea" finds Enya humming over a dark keyboard refrain

Stony steps by Matt Molloy( Recording )

5 editions published in 1987 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Irish flutist Matt Molloy has made a number of excellent solo albums (in addition to his fine work with groups like the Bothy Band, Planxty, and, most famously, the Chieftains), but this album stands out among them as something rather special. It's not that Molloy is playing any more virtuosically than usual, though as always, the reels, jigs, and airs he interprets swirl out of his flute with a perfect combination of unassuming grace and stunning ornamental intricacy. Nor is it that his sidemen are more distinguished or creative than usual; as always, they wisely keep well to the background, giving him a solid harmonic and rhythmic foundation and otherwise leaving him alone to work his magic. It's mainly the tunes themselves, which on this album are more than usually well-chosen, a perfectly satisfying assortment of tunes both sweet and astringent, both joyful and mournful. Poet Seamus Heaney wrote the liner notes, and according to him, the centerpiece of the album is an unusual medley of an air entitled "The Parting of Friends, " an untitled slip jig and a reel called "Paddy Ryan's Dream." But fine as that set is, it is eclipsed by the tune that comes two tracks before it, the strangely titled "City of Savannah." This tune, named, it turns out, after the first steamship to cross the Atlantic ocean, is something of a stylistic surprise -- it has the melodic sweetness of a Cape Breton tune, but is unusually harmonically complex and filled with unexpected accidentals and key changes. Coming between traditional sets of jigs and reels, it stands out sharply and offers a nice juxtaposition to the more familiar material. Very highly recommended. Rick Anderson
