This unique cd-project is written, composed and produced by the well known dutch flautist Jules Bitter : see and hear his cd’s "Druid Dance" and "Nehalennia Suite" at CD BABY.
"Neeltje and Saltbeard" is told by the American-Irish writer Sherry Gallagher and translated and edited by the Dublin writer Tom Horrigan.
The words, music and soundeffects of this Nehalennia tale create a true celtic atmosphere, and with a reason : Nehalennia was the goddess of the celtic coastal tribes in Zeeland in the southwest of the Netherlands and Flanders, even a long time before the Romans invaded this area and "romanised" this local cult.
At Domburg (1647) and Colijnsplaat (1970) two Gallo-Roman temples where found in the sea, and Jules Bitter presented this cd and his "Nehalennia Suite" at the official opening of the reconstruction of the Nehalennia temple in Colijnsplaat. (13 august 2005)
Neeltje the mermaid and Saltbeard the Bard are the two main characters of this tale and themeparc "Waterland Neeltje Jans". (https://www.tradebit.com)
Of course Saltbeard falls in love with Neeltje, but to become a merman and be able to live in two worlds, he has to fight Slokop the three-headed Sea Dragon...
Fortunately he gets some help from Cu, the faithfull dog, the Dolpin, and... Nehalennia herself!
The full color cd-booklet contains historical information and 11 original illustrations by Rudi Bellemans that go along with the 11 tracks.
That makes this cd an educational one and very usefull to be used in schoolprojects.
