Review[edit]

The group consists of Irish violinist Fionnuala Sherry and the Norwegian composer/pianist Rolf Løvland. Their mostly instrumental song Nocturne won the Eurovision Song Contest in 1995 and the band has gone on to sell 3 million albums. The album cover features a recoloured photograph of the Eilean Donan castle.

The «Artists.LetsSingIt.com» review awarded the album 5 stars,[1] and in 2001, the album reached number 4 on the Billboard New Age chart. The Australian tour edition released in 2004 topped the classical music chart in that country and made the top 50 of the album charts in March 2004.
