CD Reviews

The music elegantly portrays the mystery and drama of Celts.
(5 out of 5 stars)

""Her Infinite Variety" is a definite must for the Celtic music lover. Traditional music coupled with the artists' own makes this selection a treasure. It evokes the mystery and melancholy of the Celts. To offset this, it also has the lighthearted dancing music that makes the listener want to dance along. As a whole, the music is moving, inspiring, and altogether wonderful. Even if you are not an avid listener of Celtic music, I highly recommend this selection. You may be surprised."
One of the most beautiful Celtic albums.

"I recently got this album for my 17th birthday. This album is one of the best definitions of Celtic music. It has tracks by many Celtic women stars such as Cherish the Ladies, Niamh Parsons, Altan, Touchstone, Capercaillie, and Eileen Ivers, along with many other lovely female talents. Joanie Madden brings melody with the flute and whistle. Eileen Ivers, Liz Carroll, and Mairead Ni Mhaonaigh bring energy on the fiddle. Triona Ni Dhomhnaill sings with a sincere heart. Sharon Shannon, Altan, and Cherish the Ladies use accordians in ways that make you want to dance. Niamh Parsons' strong alto is so wonderful in "Clohine Winds". Many well arranged traditional melodies are played on this album. A majority of this music is traditional, but some of this music is contemparary, like Deanta's "Ready For the Storm"(one of my favorites) and "Unicorns". I love Reeltime's jig version of "Siuil A Run"(check out the versions by Clannad and the Chieftains). I love the banjo in "Jack Haggerty". I love the voices and harps of Sileas. I should say that there is not a single bad song on this album. All of these songs are really good. All of the music brings you right to the heart of Ireland. I should give credit to all of these artists on this album: Deanta, Cherish the Ladies, Niamh Parsons and the Loose Connections, Altan, Cappercaillie(they sound a lot like Clannad), Trian, Sileas, Touchstone, Joanie Madden of Cherish the Ladies, Reeltime, Eileen Ivers, Sharon Shannon(I loved her accordian melodies in Maire Breatnach's "Angel's Candles", Relativity, Open House, Liz Carroll, Carla Sciaky, June Tabor and Martin Simpson, and I should not disinclude Maeve Donnelly. Some of these artists are well known, such as Eileen Ivers(who is famous for her role in Riverdance), Altan, Capercaillie, Cherish the Ladies, and Niamh Parsons. But many of these artists I didn't know about until I got this recording. So getting this album well be a good way to be introduced to great artists. It's hard to say enough about this CD, because it is so good. Those who like Celtic women like Maire Brennan and Karan Casey will certainly enjoy this collection."
Excellent collection! | Oklahoma | 07/13/1998

"Whether you're a fan or you're new to Celtic music, this CD is an excellent addition to your collection. Green Linnet has put together a collection of many of the finest Celtic bands creating Celtic music in all its forms. There are stunning vocals from Niamh Parsons, Triona NiDhonnaill, and June Tabor. If you prefer instrumentals, try Sharon Shannon's accordion or Eileen Ivers' fiddle."
