I liked the selection, but some of the songs seem really homespun and not very good.

It seems like almost every 5/5 reviewer here wants to tell everyone how fantastic this Christmas album is, if only one loves Celtic music. Well, I like Celtic music quite a bit and it really isn't a Wow! That's Fantastic! collection of music as one would expect from seeing all of the 5/5 ratings.

The half of the songs on this album that are instrumentals, mostly of well-known traditional carols such as Deck the Halls, Good King Wenceslas, The Holly and The Ivy, etc... really are excellent and feature that fiddle, flute, and sometimes harp and guitar combinations that one expects from Irish folk music.

As to the vocal numbers, well, I don't think I had ever heard a single one of them and I don't suspect many will hear them outside this collection; they do not have that "Christmas classic" sound to them. The vocal songs mostly seemed to be contemporary attempts at sounding like Irish Christmas music (sung by a female lead singer who sounds more like a Californian trying to sing Irish songs than a born-and-bred resident of Eire) rather than songs that actually bring to mind the Christmas season. There is something about the well-known Christmas songs - be they traditional, classical or popular - that simply sounds like the holiday season, more so than just from inclusion of words like "Christmas," "Noel," "bells," "snow," etc... or from years of Pavlovian-like association with the holiday season. The vocal songs in this collection simply lack that Christmas feel to them and while reasonably played and sung, are rather forgettable. My very traditionalist mother-in-law remarked that the vocal numbers all seem to sound the same after a while and although that may not be exactly true musically and tonally, it is fairly accurate from a character standpoint.

Maybe my headset died when I bought this album but to me it sounds like a poor quality recording/compression. Also note that there are two distinct styles of music on this, instrumental & vocals. For $0.69 though it was worth it to get the instrumental pieces.

I liked the selection, but some of the songs seem really homespun and not very good. However, it was worth the price.

"Celtic Christmas" is a lovely collection of Christmas songs for those who love the music and voice of the Irish. It spans a number of sub-genres, from traditional folk tunes to famous carols. It is probably NOT for those who do not appreciate listening to Celtic groups in general, or watching Riverdance perform.

But for those who DO enjoy those things, this collection will be a welcome addition, and if some of the songs duplicate other Christmas collections they have, the voice and the music of these Celtic renditions is sure to make the duplicates worthwhile in their own right.

Unamginative orchestrations, some songs are not obviously Christmas songs. Barely worth the small price I paid for it. Nota good deal

I love Celtic music, so when I saw "Celtic Christmas" on sale for 69˘, I ordered it. My expectations were just so-so after reading the mixed reviews. I was pleasantly surprised that most of the music is fairly listenable, especially the instrumentals, including a very nice short version of "Greensleeves." The vocals aren't as strong, but they're not bad either.

Listen to the samples and see what you like. Overall, it's a pretty good album, certainly worth the low price that I paid.

The female lead singer is not very good. But I love the instruments. Had there been less singing it would have been great.

I really wanted to like it, but I guess you get what you pay for. The songs were Ok, but I found myself reaching to change songs quite often. The singing was rather plain and not very special. I was expecting something else I guess.
