Really like this disc a lot. Very ethereal with great multi-tracked vocals. Unfortunately this Import SACD is almost impossible to find at a decent price (like most OOP discs), but worth it. Nice immersive surround sound.

Maybe Universal will reissue on 5.1 HFPA Blu-ray? :)

I agree, this is a great disc. I must get it out and rate it for QQ.

Just recently discovered this via a friend (I had no idea it existed - it appears to be very rare indeed), and to my surprise it was produced and mixed by Ross Cullum, who I have actually worked with, and had no idea that he had done any 5.1 mixes. I have always loved Moya (Maire) Brennan since first hearing Clannad, and particularly her first solo album in the early 90's. This is a beautiful ethereal album, very immersive mixes, highly recommended.

A rare example of not having to think about what's wrong with the recording and how it could be mixed better. Just one great chill-out listen. Also, there's not much music like this in surround.
Next best thing to Enya in 5.1!
(pun intended)

5 long years and counting... :whistle:
oh how terribly remiss of me! šŸ˜±
"in my defence" its been a full-on 5 years, not least the joys of the Surround Master, Audio Fidelity and all the old Quads taking over my "life in surround", descending into SQ, QS, CD-4 and Q8 madness.. culminating in the biggy = Dutton Vocalion. tbh i've neglected a lot of the 5.1's from the previous 15 or so years of fun in the process.. profound surround shame is felt, i must atone! a reappraisal and subsequent review shall be forthcoming šŸ˜‡
