Words & Music to touch the heart
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This recording takes a look at Phil Coulter's 25 years in the music business. His talents include writing, producing and playing Irish music.The CD includes Coulter's musical arrangements of well-known Irish pieces such as 'Will Ye Go Lassie Go?' and 'The Nightingale'. His musical version of such songs maintain the traditional yet offer an updated sound. The CD also includes renditions of Coulter's own songs, some sung by the artist himself, others by noted musicians. Two songs deserving special mention are Coulter's 'The Old Man', a heart-stirring tribute to a father from a loving son, and 'Scorn Not His Simplicity', a tribute to a child with Down's syndrome. Coulter's 'The Town I Loved So Well' aptly portrays the changes war has brought to a town in Northern Ireland.Althought Coulter's music has deep roots in Ireland, many of the songs will speak to people from all backgrounds."
