Very wonderful voice indeed

"I first heard Karan Casey's wonderful clear voice on "Celtic Solstice". I quickly recognized the clarity, purity, and beauty of her voice. You will love the beauty of her voice in "She's Like The Swallow", "Shamrock Shore", "The Fair-Haired Boy", and "One, I Love". Even though her voice is very light, it has a lot of strength, especially in "Ballad of Accounting" and "The Digger's Song". Her wonderful voice expresses the lyrics very well and does very well in expressing the Irish spirit. There are love songs like "Roger the Miller", "One, I Love", and "The Laboring Man's Daughter". There also are songs like "Shamrock Shore", "The Fair-Haired Boy", and "The Digger's Song", which express Ireland's desire to end tyranny and win freedom. The music is very smooth and gentle, with violin, flute, and excellent percussion in "The Digger's Song". "The Wondering Song of Aengus" (a.k.a. The Golden Apples of the Sun) is adapted from a poem by the famous Irish poet William Butler Yeats. I better liked the version she sang on "Celtic Solstice", but even so, it has perfect arrangements, just like the rest of the songs. Lovely as the music is, she sounds really great in a capella! In the end, I would definately say that Karan Casey is a grand singer. I think of her as one of Ireland's finest singers, along with Maire Brennan and Noirin Ni Riain."
What a beautiful voice.

"I first heard Casey's voice on one of those compilation cds of celtic music that are so common. It was, "One, I Love". I listened to that track repeatedly. She's got such a clear and emotional voice. This cd is highly recommended."
Very Impressive

"What more can I say other than I like this CD. It came in the mail today and I've listened to it 3 times and I must admit Karens voice and choice of songs is first rate. I personally list Connie Dover and Loreena McKennitt as the very best female celtic singers in the world today. And while I wouldn't quite place Karen at par with them, she certainly is a close second. Roger the Miller and The Creggen White Hare are my two favorites, however every song on this CD plays well."
