  • ABOUT THE CD

    Old St. Patricks Church in Chicago observes a hallowed annual tradition called Siamsa na nGael, a Celtic celebration of songs, dance, and story. The organizers of this annual showcase of Irish talent saw fit on separate occasions to commission hailed Irish composer Liam Lawton to write three major works: Patrick the Shepherd Boy, Brigid of Kildare, and Kevin of Glendalough. Lawton, with the help of the combined choirs of Old St. Patricks, recorded several selections from these three works plus a number of newly composed songs to create his new CD, Sacred Land. This beautiful recording includes lush arrangements of songs like Far Beyond, The House of the Lord, Sing of a Lady, and many more. Song after song simply overflows with the hope, mercy, and strength that is found when one searches for God.

  • Liam Lawton


    For the past number of years Liam Lawton has been writing, composing and performing his unique style of inspirational music. In March 2004 Liam's talents were recognized by recording giant EMI who signed him for a number of albums. His EMI debut Another World was released in Ireland later that year featuring guest artists as Brian Kennedy, The Celtic Tenors, Fionnuala Sherry of Secret Garden, Moya Brennan, Eimear Quinn, Roisin O'Reilly amongst others. This album achieved double platinum status and was followed by his second album Time which also was hugely successful. Time was recorded with the National Philharmonic Orchestra in the beautiful city of Prague with arrangements by well known Chicago Symphony arranger Gary Fry. Liam's third album Christmas Song includes a collection of Liam's own favourite Christmas pieces with some new original music also.
    Liam Lawton's music has been recognized for its unique quality. His poetic lyrics are inspired by many sources including the ancient texts of Celtic Ireland, he is also at home writing contemporary music. Much of Liam's inspiration is drawn from the landscape of Ireland with its own dark and rich history. His melodies are full of pathos and can stir the heart and his music has been used in many an auspicious occasions for example the memorial services of 9/11 to concerts in such places as the Vatican, The White House and The Chicago Symphony Hall to the weddings of pop stars and glitterati. Liam's choral music is used by choirs all over the English speaking world and has been translated into Spanish, German and Swedish.
