Ivory Angel. Celtic musicsong composed by Gustavo Fuentes, arranged for three voices. Two melodyinstruments, such as tin whistle, low whistle, flute, recorder, piano orviolin, and low voice like cello or bass, with chords for piano orguitar. The audio is from tothe Gustavo Fuentes CD “Almas en vuelo” that you canlisten to on Spotify.
TheCeltics strongly believed in the elements of nature. They believed thatanimals, plants and even rocks had a life and a spirit. And they consideredtrees to be the most important elements. Trees symbolized life: the roots werein the Underworld, the branches in the Otherworld and the trunk in the MiddleEarth. Trees gave the Celtics wood to build homes and weapons and to shelterthem from the cold. They also shielded them from the sun with their shadow.Trees gave them fruit to eat and they lodged birds, the messengers of the Gods,in their branches. Trees protected people’s spirits and so each person wasassigned a sacred tree according to their date of birth.
Even todaywe still have spirits and objects that protect us. In the case of artists,their own art is often their protector. The title of this song refers to the“ivory angel”, the piano, however, this song is dedicated to all theinstruments that help us express ourselves and prevent us from being lonely,silent or forgotten.

Los celtas creían profundamente en loselementos de la naturaleza. Los animales, las plantas y hasta las rocas teníansu propia vida y espíritu. Y entre estos elementos, el más importante eran losárboles. Para los celtas los árboles eran un símbolo de vida, con sus raíces enel Inframundo, las ramas en el Supramundo y el tronco en la Tierra Media. Lesentregaban su madera para construir viviendas y armas, los abrigaban del fríocon su leña y los protegían del sol al dar su sombra. Les daban sus frutos queservían de sustento y resguardaban a los pájaros, mensajeros de los dioses.Eran protectores del espíritu, y cada persona tenía su árbol protector según elmomento del año en que hubiera nacido.
En nuestros tiempos, algunos tambiéntenemos espíritus u objetos protectores. Entre los artistas, es en muchos casosnuestro propio arte, representado en los músicos por nuestro instrumento. Y sibien el “ángel de marfil” se refiere al piano, esta melodía está dedicada a losinstrumentos que nos ayudan a expresarnos, y que nos protegen de la soledad,del silencio y del olvido.
