5.0 out of 5 stars A scottish girls review. October 7, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I listen to Celtic Music on a daily bases. I have a lot of celtic CDs and I love this one, the music is beautiful. And If your someone who listens to this genre a lot, you'll know that most of the songs are long slow ballads. This ablum is a good example of true Celtic Music and that's why I love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Celtic Wonder November 27, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This is a special CD which deserves a special critique. The female voices with which I'm in love, make this music Celtic (more specifically Irish/Scotts Gaelic). Their accents, and idiom and metaphor in the lyrics distinguish this CD from most others. The factors above combine to make this music exotic in a way where others, perhaps toned down or genericized to appeal to a wider market by omitting one or more of the above qualities--do not. A mix of traditional and contemporary instrumentation enriches this presentation.

Specifics:

1 An Paistin Fionn: Accompaniment: Guitar, fiddle and harmonica each provide counterpoint which contributes to the intricacy of the piece. It has good balance: an emphasis on her voice with accompaniments enriching the background. Lyrics like "...His thoughts are my ruin" provide great metaphor. Tempo: Pleasant Waltz

2 The Maid That Sold Her Barley: Accompaniment: Mandolin, penny whistle, guitar. I love her voice and the chorus is ... fetching. Lyrics: Great accent, euphemism and idiom. Content: The ballad is not just about dynamics between a man and a maid but illustrates something more broadly throughout an older fiefdom based society. You'll have to hear it and think about it to see what I mean. Tempo: Bouncy. It makes me feel I'm doing a comfortable smooth gallop over the moor. My favorite.

3 Green Grow the Rushes On: Accompaniment: Violins, penny whistles, guitar, electric piano, flute. Intricate orchestration and nice counter point. It's melancholy ... idyllic? Tempo: steadfast

4 The Flower of Magherally: Accompaniment: Guitars, piano. The volume of the accompaniment and that of the singer were just about even. I would have liked the volume on the accompaniment to be a little quieter. Tempo: Languid.

A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
When I went to Wal-mart, I noticed this and checked it out. In the end I spent 15 minutes listening to 3 20 second clips over and over again! In love with Ireland and didn't know how cool Celtic music was. You can imagine someone singing this around a campfire and it's so soulful. Be honest, in some parts the accent was so thick I didn't have clue as to what the women were singing, but it didn't stop me from attempting to sing along! Awesome price, and good music when you want to just think about something. Highly recommend this. What am I saying? Buy this and spend as much time as possible enjoying it! My personal favorite was Maid Who Sold her Barley.

5.0 out of 5 stars Celtic Music as good as it gets. March 13, 2014
Format:Audio CD
This is a brilliant collection of Celtic music.These are all traditional songs and performed by Irish singers and groups.A few are fairly well known,while others are not well known. "The Briar and the Rose" is a very old folk song ,but rendition by Niamh Parsons and the Loose Connection" is one that you will want to listen to over and over. Most of the tracks are in English but "Siuil a Run"' is in Celtic.Even if you don't understand Celtic;it is beautiful to listen to.I love to put this CD on and let it act as background music for hours on end. I have to admit that I've not heard of any of the singers or bands;so Iooked them up on the Net,and find that they are all very experienced and have performed around the world for years.
If you are looking for a different sound for your listening enjoymen Celtic Wonder will meet your needs..

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE IT! October 18, 2007
Format:Audio CD
My sister and I like to play bag pipe music in the car when we go to the renaissance festival, but we wanted something different this year, so when she saw this CD at Wal-Mart, I just had to buy it. We didn't get to listen to it on the way to RennFest, but I listened to it last week, and I loved the whole CD. Dulaman is my favorite song on the disc, and I wish I could find the lyrics, as well as an English translation.
