    An astonishing example of how to create much with a minimum of means. Very mystical mood, and without all the foggy reverb Clannad needed for that.

    Of course, you know perfectly well that Stonehenge and Callanish preceded the Celts by at least 1000 years , and good on you, because imagineering has been a Celtic tradition since the first warrior bragged about all the enemies he killed with his sword in one hand while he fixed dates with their wives with his smartphone in the other...

    Amazing arrangement. Clear tone of the mandolin, Ginny. And driving rhythm of the accompaniment.

    Thank you for you kind comments. It is so nice to see some of you back here..Simon I was getting worried you'd been picked up by your local police for riding your bike.
    Bertram you kill me. My husband had said..someone is going to call you out on Stonehenge..and I said...I googled Celts and it came up..so ...good for you.

    I dimly remember an Alan Stivell album with Stonehenge on the cover. Everybody associate neolithic sites with Celts because they share geographic locations. And everything neolithic is a first rate key to mysticism - you can feel it everywhere in Orkney, for instance. I guess Celts felt that as part of their heritage because it was all there at the time, and they didn't count years, they counted events. So it all belongs together in memory, if not in science.

    Thanks Bertram - I'm a sucker for a pretty picture - but a love of history is something you and John share.
    Thank you Pierpaolo.
