Deep Dead Blue has spent most of August and September in the UK Classical Specialist Charts top five, peaking at number 3. In Ireland Anúna achived a top 5 placing too in the Classical Charts.
In the October issue of Classic FM magazine Deep Dead Blue was chosen as Nick Bailey's "CD Choice" for the month. Here is the review: "If you saw the original Riverdance performance at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1994 you will remember Anúna. Along with the dancers, this choir of Irish singers were an integral part of the show. The Riverdance phenomenon was so successful that their director Michael McGlynn decided that they needed a break away in order to retain their own musical identity Deep Dead Blue is the result. Immediate comparisons can be made with Clannad but the sound is less commercial and certainly more classical. The whole album is mostly a cappella and medieval in style with many of the tracks based on a few strange and beautiful musical fragements from ancient Ireland. The name Anúna derives from the Irish “An Uaithne”, which is the collective name of the three ancient types of Irish music, lullaby, happy song and lament. All three are featured on this CD and if you like your music
simple and cool as an Irish mountain stream then this is definitely for you. The title track “Deep Dead
Blue” by Elvis Costello, but don’t let that put you off, because it is a beautiful lament. My favourite track is “Quem Queritis”, a medieval Irish tune arranged by Michael McGlynn. It’s a cross between Gregorian
Chant and Arvo Pärt, and Anúna certainly give the Hilliard Ensemble a run for their money!"
