Although you will find your self listening to it all year long.
Jody Allen
That combination offers all the satisfactions of regular Christmas music along with the freshness and variety of ethnic music.
James Yelvington
The music is frequently ethereal, sometimes medieval, and usually lovely.

A Christmas album to treasure all year, Noels Celtics contains delicate Medieval harmonies both vocal and instrumental, with just the right mixture of sacred "Church" music, French and Celtic flavor. While this outstanding collection avoids overused holiday ditties, the music still seems familiar--with many echoes of the carols passed down to us today. This CD is sure to delight anyone looking for somethng a little different for the holidays.

Finding unusual Christmas music has become a delightful way to bring in the holiday season. With the richness of the Celtic world this cd was an exceptionally delightful find. The music is unlike any Christmas music we have found of late and should be aquired by those who want a sound that is sure to touch deep in ones soul. As one who loves any type of Celtic music this was an exceceptional addition to our growing collection of Celtic music, as there is little offered that reflects the hauntingly beautiful sound of the music of Brittany. This Christmas ask for it to find its way to your Christmas stocking, you won't be disappointed. Although you will find your self listening to it all year long. IT is that unique.

Here it is. This is quite simply some of the loveliest music recorded. Even if you only listen to it at Christmas time (and there is no reason you can't spin it year round) this one belongs in your collection. As music from Brittany (the Celtic region of France) the songs are sung in Breton (not French as stated by one reviewer) but this should prove no obstacle to those desiring moving, beautiful music. The final minute (and a few seconds) of the final track of this CD is simply some of the most stirring Celtic music ever recorded, and given the gorgeousness of this entire CD that is saying quite a bit!

This is a phenomenal CD. Haunting, graceful...it can be listened to every day and not grow old. Other reviewers: No fair to this lovely CD for you to downrate it just because Amazon did not provide sample tracks! This is a definite winner--and I have bought several just to give as gifts.

Amazon.com has come through again with their amazingly fast and efficient service.
I received this CD in the mail last week and have managed to listen to it at least once a day since then. I recommend it highly. The pipes, drums, fifes, voices are enchanting, haunting, and evocative. Do not pass it up.
It makes a great Christmas present, both for yourselves and friends.

This is not your typical Christmas album, but I can assure you. This is a good thing.

This is Celtic Christmas music from Brittany (and, contrary to what others have said here it is not sung in French but in Breton which is the ancient Celtic language of Brittany, a region in northeast France). It is sung by a choir and although you may not fully understand what is being sung there is no doubt as to the thought, feeling, and emotion behind it. This far outdoes the typical Christmas fare you have come to expect these days. If you know that you can't bear to hear Celine Dion or Clay Akien again, give this a chance. The solitary bagpipe on "What Noise on Earth" would fit perfectly in parts of a midnight Mass and the final 1:20 (or so) of the final track "Christmas at Sea" is some of the most glorious and stirring Celtic music ever recorded.

Quite simply put, this is one of the loveliest Christmas albums I've ever heard. This year, instead of listening to "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer" for the 4 billionth time, why not get a little closer to the season with music of this uncommon beauty?

This is perhaps the finest CD of its kind I have ever heard. As for those of you who rated this album at one star (because you have not heard it) Shame On You! Give Amazon the one star for not having a sample to listen to, but this album deserves the five stars I have given it. I want to hear more of this group, and I cant wait for their next CD (I hope they make another - they are a community group)
