On his third CD, Steve Middleton takes the listener on an enchanting musical journey. Cathedrals & Castles is a magical tale recalling the ghosts and glory of a time when honour and pride echoed in the hearts of heroes. Rich textures of soothing acoustic guitars, haunting Celtic harp, soaring flute, and romantic voices draw you into the noble Kingdoms of princesses, minstrels, and courageous knights.
Digitally recorded, Cathedrals & Castles is designed to stimulate one's memory and imagination of an era gone by. Sparingly coloured with ambient sounds of nature, this album is a breathtaking artistic experience to be treasured for years. Perfect by a warm fireplace, at the country cottage, or just about anywhere.
