Product Reviews for Dark Days White Knights
5 stars 5 out of 5 stars
Stunning arrangements beautiful vocals/lyrics
I was introduced to Serundal when a friend bought me 'Leylines' for Christmas and I have been hooked ever since. I love Celtic music anyway, but sometimes struggle to find original music with vocals as traditional tends to be instrumental, or 'drinking songs'. In my opinion Serundal surpasses Clannad for their range of themes, lyrical ability and truly haunting vocals. There is something truly magical about them and every album is different. For those who love Arthurian legend, storytelling and who love to be taken away into a forgotten lost world, this album does it all. Mystical, magical and mind-blowing.

Lady of the Isles (Semi-finalist in the 2009 UK Songwriting Contest)
A beautiful crusading lover's ballad ... lilting, cantillating and monastic-like vocals calling back and forth gives this a mediaeval and romantic feeling that whisks one away on a magical, mystical journey, back to a place in legendary times where a grieving damsel awaits the return of her lover from a distant campaign ... a celtic gem ... poignant songwriting, arrangement and production. added to station 10/19/2008 5:33:18 am
