Now I can listen to the angelic voice of Connie Dover whenever I'd like.
Becci King
If you have any liking for Celtic/folk music and have not had the pleasure of finding Connie Dover, I strongly urge you to purchase this album.
Kenneth Porter
Dover has a beautiful and haunting voice, and her interpretation of these songs is brilliant.

"Simply Perfect" is how I would describe Connie Dover's first solo album, "Somebody" which truly showcases the diversity of this stunning artist. Several Celtic artists contribute their instrumental abilties, including Manus Lunny on guitar and bouzouki, Christy O'Leary on uileann pipes and whistle, Aly Bain on fiddle and Phil Cunnigham on keyboards, accordion, whistles, and cittern. Cunningham also produced the album, and went on to produce Connie's other three albums, "The Wishing Well" "If Ever I Return" and "The Border Of Heaven"

The album begins with the anguished "Somebody" a tale of lost love and the heartbreak that accompanies it. "My heart is sore for Somebody" she sings with a touch of sadness in her voice.

The tone is still melencholy, but a bit darker for "The Baron Of Brackley", a ballad based on an alledged real-life feud between John Gordon of Brackley and John Farquharson of Inverey, Braemar. Many of Connies songs tell a story, which this one vividly does so. I like to call them "story-songs"

Connie also does many instrumentals, which "On Castle Rock" is one of. The song, composed by Connie herself is the name given to the large volcanic rock formation on which Edinburgh Castle stands. Very mellow and peaceful.

Lough Erne's Shore is yet another tale of romantic angst. A pastoral love song form the north Ireland, Connie sings from the man's point of view, about falling instantly in love with a fair maddien on the banks of Lough Erne's Shore. The instrumental bridge in this song is absolutely breathtaking.

The tone is once again shifted dramatically in "Jack Of Diamonds", a 19th century American song, whose roots can be traced back to Scotland.

This album focuses more on Celtic aires than her other albums. Most of the songs are gentle, long-playing classically-styled aires that sound absolutely heavenly. She certainly has more than enough voice to carry off an album like this, and it is one her fans will treasure forever. It does lack some of the excitement of her later works because there's not as much variety from song to song. Each one is a long, gentle piece. But it's an album worth having, and in it, she certainly proves that she has all the voice and sophistication of any other classic-Celtic artist out there.

I'm writing this review because I think 'Rosemary's Sister', about the blitz in WWII England is not only a brilliant song, the performance is nonpareil. And I will admit that I have to choke back a tear each time I hear it, and I've listened to it at least fifty times.
I own all of Connie Dover's CDs. She is a national treasure.

Just a great CD. I've been listening to this for weeks and the songs keep getting better and better. My personal favorites are The Baron of Brackley, Lough Erne's Shore and An Air For Mary Tipton. The purity and beauty of Connie's voice is match only by Loreena Mckennitt. Anyone buying "Somebody" WILL NOT be disappointed.

I have never seen or met a real angel, but I imagine they must all have a singing voice like Connie's. I was fortunate enough to see Connie in a small venue concert once and look forward to the next opportunity. Can't wait to get her next album. I think tracks 4 and 6 are the best on this album, but actually they are all quite good.

I like to think of Connie Dover and Snoop Doggie Dog as the Alpha and the Omega of the sentimentality scale. (...) For what it is, though -- a fifty minute tear-jerker -- this is a masterpiece. I first heard her "Shennandoah" on PBS on the way to a trial, and search 500 entries to find hers. It is definitive. In purity of voice and in uncompromising schmaltz, Dover is one of a kind. But, hey, the world needs at least one Dover to remind the more cynical among us that there is something to measure our cynicism against. It would be nice, perhaps, if she did not feel compelled to accompany herself all the time on voice-over -- her solo voice is more than good enough. So it her recording,

Though not as good as her second album, Wishing Well, this first Connie Dover album has some wonderful songs in her classic style. Tracks #1 and #10 are the best and instant "CD repeatable" songs! I recommend all Connie Dover fans to check out all of her albums!

My goodness what a voice of an angel this artist has. Her singing reminds me a bit of Loreena McKennitt, but Dover truly has a sparkling, crystal-clear, mellow voice that can only spring from another world: pure magic . . . an unparalleled female vocalist."
