Whispering Harps of Merlin
A Musical Love Story
A reviewer on Amazon wrote,"I put this album on - then just relax and follow - from beginning to end. It has a meditative quality without any "new age" monotony. It moves, harmonically, texturally, emotionally. Each piece it's own unique journey. A remarkable achievement."
Shrouded in mystery, magic and intrigue, the prophet and seer known as Merlin, ever since his iconic life in fifth century Britain, has evoked a fascination that few have matched. Medieval scribes have chronicled Merlin’s life as a magician, engineer of Stonehenge, and mentor of King Arthur of Camelot. Merlin became known as a prodigy during his childhood, and was a much sought after visionary and healer. Later in his life Merlin created the famous Round Table and became an advisor and military strategist to four kings.
Merlin first saw Niniane one morning near Camelot in the Forest of Broceliande. Known to history as the Lady of the Lake, Niniane captivated Merlin by her beauty, grace and depth of mind. He decided to offer his music to win her heart. The Whispering Harps of Merlin tells the story of their meeting, romance, courtship, travels, a fateful prophecy, and Merlin’s imprisonment in a glass tower.
