Close Your Eyes, Love - Lullabies of the Celtic Lands

Áine Minogue

In cart Not available Out of stock

Aine's latest CD.
Parents' Choice Approved Award 2012! (All Ages)

Ancient Irish harpers believed that certain melodies could induce powerful states of sleep. They called these melodies 'suantraí' or 'songs of sleep.'

On 'Close Your Eyes, Love' Irish harpist and singer Áine Minogue revives this ancient artform to create a modern day assist for relaxation and sleep from these ancient Celtic sources of nourishment.

"Aine Minogue.... a balm for our times." BOSTON GLOBE

Top 10 Folk Album of 2005 – Boston Globe (Dec.) “Celtic Album of the Year 2005” (NAR) Full page Feature – Boston Globe Several months in the Top 10 New Age radio charts Top 10 – Echoes – December 2005 Top 10 – Echoes – March 2006 Top 25 “Essential Echoes” Cd’s of 2005 Top 25 “staff choices – essential Echoes of 2005” New Age nominations – best album, best vocal album, best Celtic Album Nominations: NAR Lifestyle Award 2006– best Celtic Album, Best Vocal album

As an artist, Aine Minogue has long explored Ireland's themes and mysteries, sharing its very essence in her vocal and instrumental melodies. Experience the power of these songs to let go of that which we've lost-- and to move toward the joys that lie ahead.

This collection offers a "companion in music"--eleven songs that carry the power of Celtic music to help us return to everyday life.

Meant to be heard often, this inspired sequence includes Celtic keening--an improvisational ode to the women of yore who carried the grief for their entire communities, "Deus Meus"__ a fusion of Latin and Gaelic healing music, a moving interpretation of the classic "Carolan's Farewell to Music," the uplifting "Awakening," and other original compositions.

“One of the most popular creators of post-Enya Celtic new age music, Aine Minogue delights her fans album after album by focusing on the more ethereal aspects of Irish and Scottish songs. Here she trains her mellifluous soprano on downcast lullabies, laments, and hymns, creating a cathartic sadness that opens the heart. Minogue has made an album that is not only musically valid but useful as a tool for grieving.” CD UNIVERSE

"The sheer beauty of this music, most of it exploring religious themes, is almost haunting" GLOBAL RHYTHM

"With a haunting and soothing voice, Aine Minogue’s "Celtic Lamentations" is perfect for that moment when you need to sit back, meditate and be calm" THE CELEBRITY CAFE

Circle Of The Sun

Áine Minogue

In cart Not available Out of stock

BILLBOARD MAGAZINE ...Celtic singer Áine Minogue is quickly outstripping any comparisons to Enya, but that's still a good place to start. Minogue's ethereal voice caresses her Gaelic lyrics like a breeze through Irish mists, but her sound is more organic, mixing her own Celtic harp with acoustic guitars, cellos, fiddles, flutes, and percussion from Irish bodhrans to Indian tablas. On "Máire Mhór," she gets earthy with some didgeridoo, funky plucked cello, and African djembe. ...Áine Minogue is close enough to her Celtic sources to be nourished by them, but not so close that they root her to the spot....

LA TIMES ....blends traditional sounds with a cross cultural blend of live and studio textures....a musically compelling album.....

SONGWRITER'S MONTHLY ...exquisite Celtic music that encompasses the old and the new in a jaunt through the seasons. Very highly recommended.....

LA TIMES
....blends traditional sounds with a cross cultural blend of live and studio textures....a musically compelling album.....

DENVER POST
....exotic rhythms behind her whispery soprano..most attractive....

NEWARK STAR LEDGER
...Minogue is a harpist and producer from County Tipperary, equally adept at shimmering new age or explosive percussion tracks.....

NAPRA REVIEW
...a super offering not just for Celtic fans, but for aficionados of ethereal female vocals as well....

DIRTY LINEN
...lively and percussive, while at the same time it opens doors to contemplation....an unusual combination that the Irish native handles well......

MISSISSIPPI PRESS
..it is the way each piece confounds expectations that gives this album its considerable charm....

IRISH EDITION
...her silky voice sensually envelops the melodies against a patchwork quilt of all that is appealing in Celtic music today.....if you like this music, you'll love this album.....

PATRIOT LEDGER, BOSTON... 
impressive....Minogue's singing is passionate, pure and respectful, ranging from mournful expressions to whispers...contemporary almost jazzy quality...lovely emotional instrumentals.....

DAILY SOUTHTOWN, CHICAGO ....takes on a meditative stillness that leaves dancing behind.......

The Record (Waterloo Region) Entertainment, Saturday Robert Reid Aine Minogue's "Circle of the Sun" (RCA/BMG) should be at the top of everybody's buying lists. Circle of the Sun is Minogue's second release since she emigrated to New England from her home in County Tipperary. It follows her superb debut "Between the Worlds." An accomplished harpist with a haunting voice, Minogue is one of the most exciting of Ireland's current generation of musicians. She combines a deep understanding of traditional Celtic music with a modern musical sensibility. Circle of the Sun consists of a blend of traditional and original songs and tunes that trace the emotional contours of the Celtic calendar. While a few tracks consist of such simple arrangements as harp with guitar, cello or fiddle, most resemble what can best be described as Celtic chamber music.

The Mysts of Time

Áine Minogue

In cart Not available Out of stock

In a concept album as large and the Island of Saints and Scholars itself, Áine Minogue explores the history of Celtic spirituality through music. The Mysts of Time: Chants and Melodies of the Ageless Celtic Lands is the result of her intense personal quest to discover the essence of the Irish spirit, with its rich and varied relationship to the divine.

"There is a large gap between Enya albums, and Áine Minogue fills it capably. She has a fragile, lilting voice that wraps around the mostly Gaelic lyrics like a gently windblown satin sheet. Lushly arranged, this mix of traditional tunes and originals is performed by some of the best players on the new acoustic music scene." BILLBOARD MAGAZINE

“This delicate and "mysty" album, subtitled Chants and Melodies of the Ageless Celtic Lands, intertwines the foggy heath with a church alcove. Aine (pronounced On-ya) interprets plainsong, traditional Celtic religious and secular as well as originals honoring Brigit.

Accompanied by guitar, cello, tabla, fiddle, oboe, bodrhan, mandolin, Irish pipes and a wonderfully rich chorus, her harp and vocal music is lush yet airy, a very lovely feast.” CD UNIVERSE

Were You At The Rock

Áine Minogue

In cart Not available Out of stock

LA Times Review by Randy Lewis ***** (Album of the Week)

Irish harpist Minogue has such a feathery touch on her instrument that the lasting impression of this album is one of dance music for leprechauns.

You'd expect such ethereal music-making from a harpist on ballads, and Minogue delivers on such achingly beautiful numbers as "Flower of Magherally" and the title tune.

Minogue - no relation to Aussie pop singer Kylie - also happens to sing as angelically as she plays. The real knockout among several hauntingly lovely vocals is her a Capella work on "Airde Cuan," the homesick lament of an Irish worker standing on the western shore of Scotland and gazing longingly at his homeland. Her voice, rich with melancholy, is accompanied only by sounds of the waves lapping on the rocks.

What's perhaps more of a surprise, then, is the heavenly delicacy she also brings to jigs and reels such as "Trippin' Down the Stairs/Peter Street" and "Miss McCloud's Hornpipe/Miss McCloud's Reel."

She's joined for the latter by fiddler Seamus Connolly, one of a handful of Irish traditional folk musicians who lend support on seven of the 12 tunes. With its segway from the measured pace of the hornpipe into the buoyant reel, "Miss McCloud" bring the album to an unabashedly joyous close.

Anyone who's skeptical of the concept of heaven as a place where eternity is spent listening to harp music should hear this.

To Warm The Winter's Night

Áine Minogue

In cart Not available Out of stock

BOSTON GLOBE ...Familiar melodies such as "Noel Nouvelle" and "Greensleeves" are delivered gracefully, with gorgeous string and oboe support from Cunningham and Kathy Halverson. Minogue's shy whisper of a soprano delivers a lulling Gaelic version of "Silent Night" and the ethereal "Darkest Midnight...

.... a spellbinding portrait of midwinter's moods and textures. Her harp is austere, never glissando-glossy or aimlessly lush.

...Spun together with brief snatches of spoken narration, this is a tender holiday masterpiece...

THE PATRIOT LEDGER ...a musical treasure...

THE IRISH ECHO ...a haunting and beautiful creation.... on the of the most unusual, original and beautiful Christmas (or should I say Holiday) Albums to appear in a long time...

FOLK ALMANAC ...One of the flat out prettiest Christmas albums to tumble down the chimney in a long time.... This is a soft masterpiece; ancient yet fresh, always lovely, always true to the warm spirits of this cold season...
