Land of Legends: Ireland in Winter

In winter, Ireland takes on a character of quiet and mystical reserve even more than it has during flourishing days of summer or the unsettled weather of spring and autumn.

You catch a hint of this as daylight turns early to night in the cities and towns. Once you get beyond them into the countryside, though, the idea of Ireland as a land of legends becomes apparent in what you see around you every moment of every day.

If you would like to hear bit of music which arises from these landscapes and ideas, take a listen to these two very different but equally interesting recordings:
