About Herbert O’Driscoll & Gwyneth Evans
Herbert has written many popular books on the spiritual life, Bible Interpretation, liturgy and the lectionary, and has delivered innumerable radio broadcasts. He is a specialist in homiletics and Celtic spirituality. He remains a sought-after speaker, preacher, teacher and leader of retreats and pilgrimages. He and his wife Paula live in Victoria, British Columbia, where he is an Honorary Assistant at Christ Church Cathedral. From his home base there, he continues to travel widely throughout North America , the United Kingdom, Europe and the Holy Land.
All of the music heard on these recordings was arranged from traditional folk tunes (most of them Celtic in origin), by the performer, harpist Gwyneth Evans. Gwyneth is a former Professor of English at Vancouver Island University who now lives in Victoria and is in great demand as a musician. She and her husband Gary share their home with five harps (including the antique Lyon and Healy concert harp heard on this recording), as well as an English Setter named Pippin.
These notes were originally produced in Victoria, British Columbia, by Ian Alexander, Matthew Baird and Marilyn Dalzell.
