    Lights in the Dark

    Zazou to the rescue. It's been that kind of week. Lights in the Dark is his take on Irish sacred music, a thoughtfully-researched set of traditional songs which weave the old with the new, lullabys and laments to the fore, a trademark Zazou collaboration with fine ethnic musicians and icons like Peter Gabriel and Dead Can Dance's Brendan Perry.

    It's Zazou to the rescue because I've been planning four 'Iona-style' services for the Liverpool clergy conference, and wanted to offer a contemplative soundtrack some distance from predictable mass-market 'Celtic' mush. This is it.
