AllMusic Review by

Lament is traditional Irish music, performed mostly in solo setting by some of the most prominent musicians in that country today. Folk and more modern instrumentation is represented: tin whistle, Celtic harp, uillean pipes, voice, bodhran, fiddle, cello, and piano. From the ghostly, wrenching rendition of "Danny Boy" by Christie Moore to Derek Bell's harp solo on "O'Carolan's Farewell," this music reaches into every heart, regardless of cultural background, and asks one to listen, feel, remember, and, as you walk the earth, taste the essence of life to its fullest.
