CD Reviews

An understated traditional album
M. J. Smith | Seattle, WA USA | 09/01/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This album has a delightful version of The Seven Joys of Mary with voices and hammered dulcimer. A number of the pieces are strictly insturment - Noel Merrily On High with guitar and harp is a typical example. The best of the instrumentals is In the Bleak Midwinter with guitar, harp and Irish flute. For those enjoying celebratory music in a laid-back style, this is a very acceptable choice."
