Celtic Odyssey, a Narada collection, is one of the few CDs I own of which I can honestly say I adore every single track, and never skip a one no matter how many times I've listened to them. I do have a favorite, though. Listen through, it's the only song with no instrumental accompaniment. This was the music I found inspiring during the writing of Kindred, which has a lot to do with Scots, and Scottish immigrants in North Carolina.
