This album is slightly more classical in nature than the previous two. Influences of Liszt can be heard in "Rhoslyn" as well as Schumann in "Lorelle" and "Oberon". "Ellette" is featured during the closing credits of the "Bell Carol" video
NOTES
I really enjoyed composing the music for this album, and it came quickly and easily to me. I chose to use the old-fashioned spelling "Faeries" rather than the modern "Fairies" because I am a traditionalist at heart. It was fun to research the names of Faeries found in myths and folklore of various cultures throughout the world. Many of the names are eastern European, and I think that may be one of the reasons why the overall sound of the album has that flavor.

"Faylinn" became very popular, as did "Oberon", however, after "Ellette" was used at the end of the "Bell Carol" video, I had more requests for that piece than any of the others.
