5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely, at times otherworldly, acoustic music March 29, 2001
Format:Audio CD
If you think Celtic folk music is mostly a matter of half-drunken guys singing "The Unicorn" at a smoky Irish pub, then give this CD an open-minded listen. The shimmering virtuosity and sheer lovely performance alone makes this an exceptional recording, but the superb production is equalled by the rich colors of Shelley Phillips' musical palette. Phillips, along with her husband Barry and fellow acoustic virtuosos Neal Hellman and Barry Coulter, has arranged a set of traditional and early-music tunes for oboe, harp, cello, dulcimer, English horn, whistle, guitar, bassoon, and flute--with the result being an album that blurs the line separating folk from chamber music. Yes, it is beautiful, at times achingly so. This music never overpowers, but gently seduces the listener with its understated elegance. And for those listeners of a mystical/spiritual turn of mind, songs like the traditional "Chanter's Tune" or Turlough O'Carolan's "Planxty Burke" evoke a sense of otherworldly yearning -- as if it were the Good People themselves playing this music. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Renaissance Feeling June 11, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I have been a fan of Shelley Phillips for some years and am ever so happy to purchase her recordings. "The Fairie Round" is my favorite recording because it evokes a "Renaissance feeling," as though you have stepped back in time to centuries gone by and are dancing at a courtly gathering or frolicking in a wild, green pasture. My toddler loves it, too. Track number eight is her favorite and she dances everytime she hears it. Well worth the purchase.

This is one of my favorite compact discs. Shelley Phillips (and others) gives a wonderful performance of a wide variety of early music. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars An atmospheric ensemble November 10, 2012
Format:Audio CD
What appeals to me with this recording is that it is traditional, intricate, and soothing. The tunes are familiar pieces but with fresh arrangements. The musicians seem to take their craft seriously, seem to care about the music, and present it an enjoyable way. There's a lot of variety, yet not so much that it seems like a sampler CD. Unlike other reviewers I don't know anything about the musicians. I happened to find this recording, took a chance, and it's become one of my favorites.
