Synopsis

Amazon.com essential recording
James Galway is one of the most successful "crossover" artists around, generally managing to produce albums that appeal to a broader than purely "classical" audience but doing it tastefully and with a musical integrity that has earned him the respect of classical specialists and critics. This collection of Irish folk music and popular song is a case in point, consisting of pieces Galway clearly cares about and that he plays with complete sincerity and warmth. The Chieftains offer excellent support, and everyone sounds as if he's having a terrific time. You will, too. --David Hurwitz

"Easy listening, very nice Celtic Classical music. Typical Ireland tunes of jigs & dances with flutes & whistles."
Galway and Chieftains superb

"Once again, James Galway and the Chieftains have succeeded in making music to help you relax. It is so soothing and well performed, that one can take a nap, unwind from a hectic day, or just sit an enjoy the peace that comes from quality music. I don't recommend it while driving, unless you have lots of coffee, or someone to talk with, to help you stay awake!"
Great music!

"I grew up listening to this CD, but every time I lend it to a friend - it "disappears". I've bought this CD 4 times, and have been happy to do it each time."
