Lisa Gerrard & Patrick Cassidy - Immortal Memory (2004)

A breathtakingly gorgeous collaboration between Lisa Gerrard of Dead Can Dance and Irish composer Patrick Cassidy. Cassidy's dramatic, stately, symphonic arrangements prove a sublime foil for Gerrard's indescribably powerful, sorrowful voice, and the resulting album is possibly the most satisfying of her many post-DCD efforts. Highly recommended.

Track listing:
1. The Song of Amergin
2. Marantha
3. Amergin's Invocation
4. Elegy
5. Sailing to Byzantium
6. Abwoom (Our Father)
7. Immortal Memory
8. Paradise Lost
9. I Asked for Love
10. Psallit In Aure Dei
