Repressing of the 2010 release from veteran singer/songwriter Chris de Burgh. Moonfleet And Other Stories was inspired by the gripping 18th century tale of love and loss, set against a backdrop of smuggling in the coastal village of Moonfleet, Dorset. Written in 1898, such is the popularity of this story that it has already been adapted to film, two TV series, a stage and a radio play. Chris’s adaptation utilizes all his musical skill, masterfully combining Classical, Folk and choral genres with his trademark ballads, Pop and Rock songs, and features a narrative which takes the listener on an emotion-filled journey, creating a “film in the mind”. There are 19 brand new, original compositions on Moonfleet And Other Stories, six of which tell the ‘other stories’ of the title, covering such diverse subject matter as Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, the loss of innocence, a story by Oscar Wilde, a tale of war, a guardian angel and an eloquent musical statement on 2009 atrocity in Iran, a place with which Chris has a deep affinity.
