The Book of Invasions: A Celtic Symphony is the sixth album by the Irish Celtic rock band Horslips. It was a concept album based on an adaptation of Irish legends built into a complex story. It is named for the Lebor Gabála Érenn, a book of Irish mythology known as The Book of Invasions in English. Released in 1976, it is usually considered their best work. It was their only UK top-40 album, peaking at 39. Trouble With a Capital T and The Power and the Glory were released as singles. The Book of Invasions: A Celtic Symphony Geantrai Tracks 1-8, Goltrai Tracks 9-11 Suantrai Tracks 12-14. Daybreak March Into Trouble Trouble With a Capital T The Power and the Glory The Rocks Remain. Book of Invasions is generally regarded as their best album, but since I hadn't heard everything from them, I can't say. The band consisted of Charles O'Connor on fiddle, mandolin, and concertina, Jim Lockhart on keyboards, flute and whistles, Berry Devlin on bass, John Fean on guitar, and Eamon Carr on drums. The book of invasions is Horslips' masterpiece, a concept album that is musically varied and cohesive from beginning to end. From the clarion call that opens Daybreak to the gently plucked notes that follow the stormy Ride to Hell, this is celtic rock at its best. Other Horslips albums: The Táin.

My favorite album by Horslips and easily in my top three albums from Ireland. I'm biased as I have fond memories of this album since I heard it for the first time while spending a working summer vacation in Shannon. Prior to the digital age it wasn't an easy album to find and I spent more than I should have on a copy, but it was well worth it. Your feedback for The Book Of Invasions: A Celtic Symphony.

Horslips were a 1970s Irish rock band that composed, arranged and performed their own Celtic rock songs and music based on traditional Irish jigs and reels. They were one of the first, if not the first, of the Celtic rock bands of that era. Formed in 1970, they disbanded in 1980, but recently in 2005 the original line-up has regrouped and performed a small number of gigs. Play jigsaw puzzles for free Home.
