The Epistle of Paul to the Galatians, often shortened to Galatians in the Holy Bible is one of the best references to the Celts http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epistle_to_the_Galatians. This is the center of Michael Card’s album Starkindler: A Celtic Conversation Across Time. I love the amount of energy and arrangement placed in this album and I rank this (along with Moya Brennan’s Perfect Time) as the best example of Contemporary Celtic Christian Music.

  1. Very cool, Bax! I love Michael Card’s Starkindler CD, too. I’ve had it since it came out. I’ve actually seen him in person a number of times and really enjoyed him in person as well. I love the two I have never heard before too…thanks!
