My friend introduced me to this and I have to agree that it is some of the most beautiful music. The track to listen out for is 'Riverdance', the one that helped them shoot to stardom ten years ago. It is a wonderfully passionate piece; listen out at about 4:40 minutes for when the irish pipes come in, it just sets your heart racing! It is great music just to sit and listen to, you don't have to be a fan of the show to appreciate it. All in all, one of the best purchases I have made on iTunes!
Riverdance (Music from the Show)
All the music on this wonderful CD comes from the original show of 'Riverdance'. The original show was at first only 7 minutes long and created by Moya Doherty for Eurovision 1994 which was being held in Ireland. After these spectacular 7 minutes was aired on national tv, there was a great demand for more Riverdance. Riverdance was then created into a full scale broadway production lasting about 2 hours. The music from the broadway show has been brought together to make this wonderful CD. This CD contains many hours of enjoyable listening, whether it be listen to the hard-shoe irish dancing or the instrumental solo pieces. This is a must for everyone's ipod!!!
Riverdance is insperational
The River's soul
I myself am Irish. Riverdance reflects on Irish history. The lyrics are beutiful and have meaning. My favourite piece is The Harvest
