Favorite Christmas Album
Sean A. Lotz | Southern CA, USA | 11/23/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Finally, a "Celtic Christmas" album which doesn't feature Rudolph with a little tin whistle thrown in! This is real music from real Celtic lands, beautifully played and elegantly sung. With Irish, Scottish, Cornish, Manx, Breton, English, and Welsh songs, it covers all the territory. Everyone to whom I have recommended it loves it and counts it among his favorites. If you are tired of the normal cliched gunk on most Christmas albums, if you love Celtic music or just good old fashioned dancable tunes, you might enjoy this. I hope you love it as much as I. (I want to know who these people are and where I can find more of their music or hear them live.)"
Great Music, Mangled Title Order
Sean A. Lotz | 07/14/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The copy I received, seems to have all the pieces listed, and they are great! However, the order of the pieces is *NOT* the same as listed on the jacket. Hence the 4-star rather than 5-star. For example, track one is listed as "Rorate coeli desuper!" when in actuality it is "Tomorrow Shall Be My Dancing Day." The only one I can say is corect is track 4, "Good People All." In short good listening, as long as you don't really care about what the actual song titles are or can determine the correct order."
As a folk musician, I found this recording delightful!!

"The instrumental accompaniments are delicate and sensitive to the texts as well the origins of the melodies. The variety of music is a mix of the familiar and unfamiliar. If you are a lover of folk and celtic music, you will love this recording and want to add it to your collection."
