Review

Secret Voyage is the seventh studio album by the group Blackmore's Night. According to a SPV press release, Secret Voyage is another kaleidoscopic musical journey through time and space, incorporating and rearranging traditional melodies from all over Europe, blending the "old" and contemporary.

Secret Voyage consists of twelve new tracks, recorded by Candice Night, Ritchie Blackmore and their Band of Minstrels.

Secret Voyage won the New Age Reporter Lifestyle Music Award as the best Celtic album. It was also nominated for NAR awards in two more categories - Best Vocal Album and Best Cover Artwork for a CD.


Blackmore’s Night’s seventh studio effort shows the band progressing deeper into the realms of experimental medieval folk rock.

Kicking off with lush orchestration and monk chants, SECRET VOYAGE immediately transports the listener to a distant time and place. The only element of the album that places it in present time is the silken sound of leader Ritchie Blackmore’s signature guitar tone.

Also featuring a rousing version of the Elvis Presley classic “Can’t Help Falling In Love,” SECRET VOYAGE is a frolicking magic ride.
