Lullabies and airs for all ages performed on the Celtic Harp
Kim Robertson`s name has become synonymous with the gentle but powerfully evocative Celtic harp, an instrument which for a thousand years held within its strings and wood the spiritual heartbeat and poetic breath of the Celtic race.

SACRED TREASURES IV is a richly textured compilation of some of the most tenderly beautiful pieces from the vast repository of Western sacred choral music, all but one piece dating from the early 20th century to the present. As the title suggests, these choral masterworks are truly quiet prayers.
The psalm "Miserere mei Deus" is a prayer for mercy, contrition and renewal. Since the 1630's, Gregorio Allegri's famous setting has been sung at dawn during Holy Week, while the Pope kneels in prayer in the solemn candlelit atmosphere of the Sistine Chapel. This contemporary version, recorded in the spectral grandeur of Osnabruck Cathedral, adds new material composed by Vladimir Ivanoff to the ethereal harmonies of the Osnabruck Youth Choir and the elegiac brass tones of the cornetto, recreating the mysterious beauty of this sacred classic.
