Product Description

Deluxe Edition features a new studio track and three live recordings. The package also includes a silver claddagh charm, the legendary Irish symbol for love, loyalty and friendship. These 2007 recordings capture the great voices of Lisa, Maev, Orla, Chloe and new member Hayley Westenra, and the inspired fiddle playing of Mairead, in a stirring program of traditional Irish songs, works by contemporary artists and compositions by musical director David Downes. The music was produced, arranged and composed by David Downes.

Amazon.com

Second only to Riverdance as an international Irish showbiz phenomenon, previous installments of this Platinum-selling extravaganza have become beloved PBS standards. The original buxom quartet of female singers, Lisa, Maev, Orla, and Chloe, have duly been joined by Hayley and are, as usual, backed by a full symphony orchestra and choir, plus enough traditional instruments (the house fiddler, Mairead, is a powerhouse) to keep things legit. The material ranges from folkloric ("Dúlaman" is best known from Clannad's legendary rendering), to a standard from another Celtic nation ("Caledonia," Dougie McLean's love letter to his native Scotland), to classical lite (Handel's poignant "Laschia Ch'io Pianga"), to movie hits ("Somewhere Over The Rainbow" in a delicately lovely, a cappella, close-harmony treatment), to homegrown New Age (Enya's "Newgrange"). Most tracks are produced to turn, presented in the aural equivalent of Technicolor or day-glo, in which colors pop while diverging ever so slightly from nature. In short, although the album offers fresh material, it covers old ground -- but this is exactly what the act's target audience expects and desires. Fans of acoustic folk would likely find the prevailing aesthetic a touch garish, but fans of Sarah Brightman and Il Divo will be diverted and thrilled. The deluxe package offers four bonus tracks, three of them live, plus a silver claddagh charm. --Christina Roden

Celtic Woman is back in a refreshing new album, rivaling, if not surpassing, their previous work. Once again, recurring themes of nature, destiny, history, heritage and love are infused with Celtic melodies to make this music timeless and classic. And don't discount the fantastic arrangement by David Downes. His genius is clearly exhibited in the orchestral and choral background for the songs, as well as song selection.

Describing this music is a hopeless task; if the words were sufficient, we wouldn't need the music. But I'll try.

1. The Sky and the Dawn and the Sun:

Begins with the lush, evocative strains of mystery and exotic nostalgia as only Celtic styles can weave. The music is enriched as the five vocals (Chloë, Órla, Lisa, Méav and newcomer Hayley) join their voices into a spectacular blossoming melody of morning and dawn, of newness and awakening.

In a musical interlude, the wondrous violinist Máiréad takes charge with her rapturous performance. To listen to her is not enough. To fully understand her talent (indeed, the talent of the entire group) you have to buy the DVD or catch a viewing on PBS. Máiréad is a fleet-footed fairy similar to J.R.R. Tolkien's character Tinuviel. She dances and darts about the stage, bounding from one end to the other, flinging her flaxen hair to and fro, kicking up her heels. All the while she is playing, her hands moving almost faster than the human eye can follow, sawing the bow across the strings, eliciting fast-paced melodies beyond the scope of human imagination. There is almost a devilish glint of innocent mischief in her eyes and smile as she dances.

In short, the first song is the perfect opening track to reintroduce us to the Celtic Woman reverie.

For those who are unfamiliar with Celtic Woman, it was a group that reached the spotlight with the help of PBS, which aired it several years ago as part of its artists exposure programs and was quickly overwhelmed by viewer feedback that created a world tour and generated enough buzz to bring them farther along. At the moment, their eponymous debut and a Christmas album share the top two spots on the Billboard World Music charts. Their debut also hit platinum last month.

With the launch of new CDs after a long span of extraordinary success, listeners are always slightly nervous about what will be released. The first tastes of A New Journey were in PBS's airing of the August concerts in Slane Castle last December, and for those who saw it and loved it as I did, the CD is not much else than most of the Slane program studio-recorded and mixed/edited/etc. As someone who watched the PBS showing probably too much, there wasn't anything surprising or new on the CD (the only songs that were not in the PBS special are The Blessing and Vivaldi's Rain, the latter of which was released on one of the CW solo albums).

That doesn't mean anything to those who missed Slane or just want to have the songs on CD. The music is a blend of genres, a sound quite unique to Celtic Woman. There are relatively few numbers that actually befit their name, such as Dulaman and Newgrange. The CW sound is more of a new-age-meets-classical-with-modern-Celtic-splash. A fair number of the tracks are original compositions by David Downes (and several others such as Brendan Graham and the fiddler Mairead Nesbitt to name a few).

So there I was browsing books at my favorite Barnes and Noble book store. While looking at all the new arrivals I heard the most beautiful music begin to play. At first I hummed along and continued to browse the books. My mood was uplifted almost immediately. When Caledonia began to play I made my way back to the music department to see what was playing. It was this CD. I purchased a copy of the CD right then and there. Now I've had the CD home for a little over two weeks and I've listened to it already countless times. It has the power to make the commute to work happier, housework less tiresome, writing more productive.

This excellent CD is populated with excellent orchestral music accompanied by the most crystal clear angelic voices you'll ever hear. Two favorites are The Prayer and Calendonia. There isn't a single dud on this CD.

I highly recommend this CD and have already purchased others by this group of talented artists. This is one of the best CD purchases I have ever made. I am quite sure that if you like well done celtic music or just love music period, that this would be a great purchase you'll never regret.

I feel like I have been waiting for this CD forever. I am not in the least disappointed. It contains a great selection of songs and some of the most beautiful voices in music, today.
All the songs on this CD are wonderful, but there are a few that stand out.

The Prayer: This is a solo by Chloe Agnew and it gave me chills. She has the sweetest, most enchanting voice.

Over the Rainbow: All the ladies sing this song, their voices blend seamlessly. The way they harmonize, it's indescribable.

Granuaile's Dance, Shenandoah - Pacific Slope: Mairead's fiddle sets a different tone and pace to this CD. It's impossible not to want to dance to her playing. Between the fiddle and the bodhran, I am in music heaven.

At the Ceili: I saw the ladies perform this song in concert this summer and I was hoping they would record it. It is a comical look at dating. The beat is fast, the lyrics humorous and the singing great.

Spanish Lady: Another song I saw them perform and hoped they'd record. All the women sing this one and again it is another upbeat, toe tapping, fun song.

I received a charm with my CD, its a little silver claddagh, it's cute. Comes with an explanation of the symbol and what it means. I don't think there are any songs on this CD that I would skip through. The only song I am not madly in love with is Sing Out and that's not even skip-able. It's not a bad song; it's just not my favorite. Another thing I like about this CD is that they included the lyrics on the insert, even the ones not in English. This is a wonderful CD and an excellent edition to your Celtic Woman collection. I can't think of a more gifted group of women.
