When music sounds, gone is the Earth I know,
And all her lovely things even lovelier grow;
Her flowers in vision flame, her forest trees,
Lift burdened branches, stilled with ecstasies.
~Walter De La Mare

Listen to clips from the album

Seven years in the making, ‘Through the Faerie Portal’ is the latest offering from Karen Kay and Michael Tingle. A natural evolution from their ‘Enchanted’ album, this DOUBLE CD takes the listener on a magical journey through the faerie portal and directly into fairyland! A place where dreamers dream and magic is a natural occurrence. With inspiration from Karen’s relative, the fairy poet and author Walter De La Mare, and W.B. Yeats, you are certain to be enchanted for an hour in human time, or a hundred years in fairy time!
