"Has it been a while since you've discovered a vibrant, fresh talent? Perhaps years ago a friend wanted you to hear a CD from a new musician who went on to be your all time favorite....Beauty of the Earth by Lydia McCauley could be this years' version of that experience. Put Appalachia,Ireland,Washington State, Italy, Loreena McKennitt and Enya in a jar and......... SHAKE!"
I Love every song on it!

"Lydia McCauley's new CD, The Beauty of the Earth, is a well thought-out, beautifully produced, and thoroughly enjoyable album. I love every song on it.
I have enjoyed Lydia's previous CDs, but her new one is my favorite! I find myself listening to it everyday and it never fails to lift my spirits. There are moments of pure ecstacy in several of the songs.
I am impressed with the quality of Lydia's musicians. They work together in a wonderful way, each one seems highly skilled. The recorder player adds an early music sound, the violist displays an array of styles, the guitarist is outstanding, and the bass and percussion fill it out nicely.
If you like Mary Black, Loreena McKennitt, or Kate Rusby, I would highly recommend that you buy this CD!"
