Back of CD says: Through Medwyn’s music the listener can join the Celtic Clan and relive the ancient journey of Galatain the Warrior. Celtic harp, flute, Irish whistle, dulcimer, mandolin and guitar are overlaid with dramatic keyboard effects and powerful rhythms to create music that not only has an authentic Celtic Flavour but also the impact of a story with epic dimensions. Medwyn has excelled at creating a musical score to the struggle between good and the forces of darkness.
Medwyn Goodall has gained an international reputation for producing best selling albums, including Earth Healer which was voted the leading New World album of 1992 and the highly acclaimed Druid Trilogy. Inspired by Nature, Medwyn continues to work from his studio in rural Cornwall. He plays over a dozen instruments and has evolved unique styles of instrumental music which are highly melodic, expressive and inspiring. His music often magically blends ethnic instruments as in the recently produced album Moon Goddess
This album appears more concerned with evoking a feeling for Celtic history, and taking you on a journey, rather than reproducing historical Celtic music.
Traditional instruments are used throughout, but these are tempered against synthesized chords, sometimes distant deep drums and natural sounds. As with many of Medwyn Goodall’s albums you feel you are part of a story, and in this instance the story is that of an ancient Clan who gather to summon back the Warrior Galatain, brave champion of truth and goodness.
