Ethereal Celtic vocalist Méav first rose to prominence as a featured soprano soloist with the choral group Anúna, which was featured in several of the biggest productions of Riverdance. In addition to extensive touring with Anúna, Méav also performed on several occasions with the Irish National Chamber and Concert Orchestras. That varied background was reflected on Méav's self-titled debut album, released in 2000 by the Hearts of Space label; it featured both traditional Celtic songs and classical-style pieces, plus chiefly orchestral arrangements and a dramatic new age sensibility. Silver Sea (2003) and Celtic Journey and Celtic Woman (both 2006) brought those themes to an even larger audience.
