NEW! Inspired by Tobey's 850 km trek along the Camino de Santiago in Spain. 9 movements are a melange of jazz, classical, world, latin and folk music with lively themes ranging from a Bossa Nova to a Salsa.
Opening with Ultreia, a salut to the call of the road, the songs carry listeners chronologically along the life altering trip through to final fulfillment and quiet reflection with the ending segment Finisterre. Rhythms and tunes guide listeners along the journey echoing the playful breezes, lush natural surroundings and colourful cafes encountered along the Camino, along with momentous events such as; the running of the bulls and the triumphant arrival in Santiago.
Here's what others had to say about the live concert and the CD.
"The whole (concert) experience gave me shivers and made me laugh and cry." Loretta Ray, Pilgrim 2005
"Last night's concert was terrific. I have wanted to do the Camino for five years and I can assure you, your concert has helped solidify that goal." Leo Renzella
"What a fantastic evening we had!!! I don't know if you noticed but after the first piece, a friend of ours jumped up and gave you a standing ovation. We all enjoyed the entire night immensley. I now would like to go to Spain. I gave a CD to our friends and I know they will enjoy it too!!!" Verna Timpener
"Congratulations on an excellent and entertaining evening. You should sell Celtic Santiago, especially, as a single." Dr. Norman Cuthbert
"This evening's performances were splendid, from beginning to end. The Gregorian renditions were inspired and inspiring; your various - and varied! - movements were superbly conceived and delivered; and you gave the BSO an excellent opportunity to demonstrate their outstanding versatility - which they succeeded in doing. Truly an evening of fine entertainment. Felicitaciones y muchismas gracias; estuba bastante especial!" Iain Calder
