Scots Gaelic, Irish, and Manx Songs
Barbary Grant is a highly renowned vocalist and harper within Celtic communities. She sings and articulates fluently in all three Goidelic languages: Scots Gaelic, Irish, and Manx. This homage won her first place in the sean nós competition at the 1998 Great American Irish Fair. Sean nós, “old style” in Irish, is a highly ornamented style of a cappella singing.
This Barbary library is constructed from over 1450 different vocal phrases covering over 12 hours of recorded material. Most phrases in the library are based on classic (public domain) songs from the Celtic, Gaelic, Irish, Scots, Welsh, and Manx music folklore. Additionally, the library contains a variety of experimental phrases, including whisper songs, chanting, lullabies, and basic sustained notes.
Forgotten Voices: Barbary contains a unique set of custom vocal ambiances designed from her voice. These patches work perfectly in combination with the original phrases or can be used completely separately to enrich your score.
Forgotten Voices: Barbary contains an all-new yet familiar user-interface, allowing you to access the wealth of phrases in the library quickly and easily. The New user-interface also contains a range of effects, mix and EQ options allowing you to easily sculpt and adjust the phrases to fit your composition.
