Program Notes

In the legend of King Arthur, Avalon is a mythical island where Arthur's body was taken to be laid in rest after being mortally wounded by Mordred at the Battle of Camlann. It is also home of the power enchantress Morgan le Fay and where some versions of the legend say the sword Excalibur was forged.

Beyond the Shores of Avalon takes the listener on a musical journey to this magical sanctuary, a place of beauty and mystery. Avalon was the home to many powerful enchantresses and other magical queens. The island, shrouded in mist, is said to be a utopian paradise full of grapevines, grain plants, and where apples grow year-round. It is sometimes referred to as "the island of apples," as the name is taken from the Breton word for the fruit, "aval."
