Celtic Woman: Songs from the Heart - GIVEAWAY ADDED

Take a music bath once or twice a week for a few seasons.  You will find it is to the soul what a water bath is to the body.  ~Oliver Wendell Holmes

Songs From The Heart will bathe you in sound and take you to places you never dreamed possible.

Now, my taste in music tends to run rather eclectic. I'm a fan of Patty Smith and The Ramones, but you'll also catch me listening to Dvorak and Rachmoninoff, so it's no surprise that I find this Celtic Woman album Songs From The Heart (from the PBS special of the same name), beautiful. The music on this CD is both from traditional as well as contemporary sources, yet this eclectic mix of music works.







If you've read some of my past reviews, you know that I usually DISLIKE compilations of music that have been recorded over and over.  In this case, I've made an exception, mostly because of the traditional style of this group of talented women.

If you've never listened to Celtic Woman, and you're a fan of either Irish music, New Age music or LOVE Celtic folk - you'll be an instant devotee of their haunting sound. Made up of four vocalists (Lisa Kelly, Chloe Agnew, Lynn Hilary and Alex Sharpe) along with a violinist (Mairead Nesbitt), Celtic Woman has been seen on such shows as Dancing With the Stars, etc. You can check them out on their upcoming PBS special.

Tracks include ~ 

1. Fields Of Gold
2. Amazing Grace
3. Níl Sé’n Lá
4. My Lagan Love
5. When You Believe
6. The New Ground
7. Isle Of Hope, Isle Of Tears
8. The Coast Of Galiçia
9. Non C’è Più
10. The Moon’s A Harsh Mistress
11. You’ll Be In My Heart
12. Goodnight My Angel
13. Galway Bay
14. The Lost Rose Fantasia
15. O, America!
I'm sure that you recognize quite a few of them!

Celtic Woman is currently on tour in the US through May and you can check to see if they're coming to a venue near you as well as order tickets here. All of their past 7 tours have sold out, so if you'd like to see them....order your tickets quickly. You can read more about Celtic Women on their site, as well as enjoy their Video Tour Diary!

Thank you to EMI Music and Music Moms for providing me a review copy of this CD as well as this giveaway. I was in no way compensated for this post and all opinions are strictly my own.
