Product Description

CELTIC ANGELS AT CHRISTMAS showcases six uniquely talented Celtic Angels Gillian Boucher, Stephanie Hardy, Kendra MacGillivray, Sabra MacGillivray, Maggie MacInnes and Patricia Murray performing Christmas music with Celtic style. The setting for these intimate performances is an elegant world of winter white. Gillian Boucher is a remarkable fiddler known across the globe as one of the strongest bearers of Cape Breton music and culture. Also from Cape Breton, vocalist Stephanie Hardy is the latest artist to emerge from the vibrant East Coast music scene. Fiddler Kendra MacGillivray plays the music of her Scottish ancestors with energy and passion. Canada s leading ambassador of Celtic dancing, Sabra MacGillivray, shows off her champion style and introduces a fun group of young wee angel step dancers. Scottish artist Maggie MacInnes, a master of the clarsach (Celtic harp) performs heartrending traditional Scottish hymns in Gaelic. Patricia Murray, Prince Edward Island s leading Celtic singer, absolutely glows in magnetic performances of the carols she has chosen for the show.

    The title pretty much says it all. If you are a fan of Celtic music, there is no denying that the performers on this television presentation are talented and appealing. This special was shot in 2006/7, aired in 2008, and is just now receiving a DVD release. With dance, vocals, and instruments--this is an eclectic mix of traditional Christmas hymns mixed with original Gaelic pieces. The variety is certainly one of the selling points. While all of the singers have lovely voices, I really enjoyed the harp and fiddle solos. But I did appreciate that even when covering an old warhorse like "Silent Night," the interpretation used a combination of languages for a unique version.

    If this type of music appeals to you, this presentation has its strengths (the performers) and a major drawback as well. The budget for this piece seems to have been about twelve cents. Shot in a single room with a sheet draped across the background to simulate winter (with assorted props), this has all the style of a homemade cable access program. When the ladies sit on stumps to reminisce, it's fairly awkward. But, of course, you don't need a lot of extraneous material if you can sing and play beautifully. The lack of a real set, however, is most noticeable on the dance sequences with the solo clog to "Winter Wonderland" being very sad indeed (no offense to the talent).

    Here's the roster. The DVD runs at 48 minutes (a one hour TV special with the commercials edited out). I liked it. The ladies have talent to spare, I just wish the production had received more thought and care! KGHarris, 10/11.

    I saw these Angels on the Hallmark "SpiritClips" channel and loved their music. I purchased this DVD as a gift and my friend throughly enjoys the music as well. The Angels incorporate some traditional Christmas songs as well as a few Gaelic tunes as well.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Nice show with missing elements. December 1, 2011
    By rdurham

    Let me first say, I completely agree with the previous review and I'll add a few more observations. The lack of a live audience was way too obvious so there was no reaction or interaction with each performance. Some of the songs were abruptly ended to accommodate what was a TV commercial or personal comments from the performers.
    Also, there was very little musical accompaniment with each song. Most performances included either a violin or an acoustical guitar. There was an electric piano on one performance and a harp on occasion. Overall, the show was reasonably well done and the talent of the performers is good but not outstanding. It's a good buy at the current price of about $3.00. I wouldn't recommend spending a whole lot more or you may end up feeling like you didn't get much bang for your buck.
