Professional reviews

"Donal Donnelly projects a scholarly, yet ironic tone, as if to remind us that history, while important, is capricious, and we'd best not forget it. The listener must wade through much Roman and Celtic culture before getting to hear about the BOOK OF KELLS. E.K.D. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
