5.0 out of 5 stars Golden Apples of the Sun April 13, 2002
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Ceoltoiri is a group of Irish musicians; Connie McKenna, Sue Richards and Karen Ashbrook. These three women, along with a number of guest musicians have put together a CD of music that is a combination of the traditional and new arrangements of mostly Irish/Gaelic jigs, reels and ballads. For any Irish music lover, this is a must-hear collection. Strong and haunting vocals, a variety of traditional instruments (celtic harp, hammered dulcimer, penny whistle, bodhran, and fiddle to name a few), and wonderful songs�some of them familiar, some of them more unusual.
The vocal music is my favorite part of this album. My favorites include #1. Arise and Dress Yourself; this is an Irish Gaelic song, where a suitor begs his lover to wake and cut her hair. #6. Son of Wandering Aengus is the famous poem by William Butler Yeats that inspired the title for this album. #11 The Plain Girl�s Lament; a wonderful example of sean nos (�old ways�) style singing performed a capella by Connie McKenna. The instrumentals are well done and interspersed between the vocals to provide the listener with a good balance. My particular favorite is #10 Polska Set.
This is a great CD for when you want to really listen to the music. I�ve found it hard to have as background music because I�ll start paying attention to the lyrics, and the mood shifts from selection to selection. Perfect for anyone interested in Irish music, culture and tradition. The liner notes offer a brief paragraph on each song, explaining the origins of the lyrics and the music and what traditions, if any are behind each particular May you enjoy.
Happy Listening!

I now have over 60 C.D.'s of assorted Celtic ,including Nightnoise, Altan, Mary Black, etc........I have all three Ceoltoiri albums and its hard to choose a favorite ! Far Away and The Polska Set are excellent...The Death of Queen Jane wonderful too!

This is quite possibly my all time favorite album. A combination of vocal and instrumental pieces, the music is both soothing and uplifting.
