Awakening, Nocturne, Sailing, The Foxhunter, Black is the Color, The World Falls Away, and The Parting Glass.
Awakening is a song that reminds me of The Sky and the Dawn and the Sun. It starts off with each of the girls singing a short solo then they all come together with energy and excitement in the air. The song is about awakening the dawn as a fire in the night.
Nocturne is a lovely song sung by Chloe about dreams, flying, and claiming the sky. Listen to it just before you go to sleep :)
Saling is a contemporary Celtic song. You really feel like you're on a ship!
The Foxhunter is Mairead's dazzling solo that will have you tapping your feet and making you wish you could play remotely like her.
Black is the Color is Lisa L's first solo. Suiting Lisa's voice very well, it's about a guy singing of his true love.
Teir Abhaile Riu is a fun song. It's also the only song on the entire CD with any Gaelic in it. (Is that saying something about how much less Celtic CW has become?)
The World Falls Away is in the same track as Walking the Night. Some people will argue that the first song flows beautifully into the second, but if I'm in the mood to listen to a cheerful song like The World Falls Away, I'm not going to want to listen to a mournful song like Walking the Night first.Read more ›
That being said I am a closeted fan of celtic woman, though I'd rather die than admit that to my schoolfriends.
Unfortunately I am not as much a fan of this cd as I was genuinely hoping to be. The problems I have are:
-It seems incredibly rushed with less tracks and less lush and complex arrangements
-3 singers are not enough, an extra girl should have been brought in on time for the concert
-Track arrangements have become tooooo formulaic, 2 mairead solos 1 trad 1 part ballad multi tune arrangement comparable with shanendoah/reels. 1 diddly-i song teir abhaile riu(see ceili/nil sen la/christmas pipes all of which are better). You could probably start laying bets on which clannad back catalogue song they'll choose to "reinterpret" next with hilarious hippy lyrics that sometimes jar with the retained irish lyric. 1 uplifting orchestral piece handled well sung well but still inexplicably bland: you'll never walk alone. 1 epic opening song which I liked but it needed to be shortened or have variety added(again the hippy lyrics fell over the line into hilarity in some parts here). Lisa sings another mother earth broadway/country ballad followed by mother earth traditional ballad. Chloe sings a stock classical piece with no publishing rights that means celtic woman tries to borrow some audience from il divo josh groban etc. Chloe sings a secret garden cover, again I'll be running bets on what the next cover from secret garden will be(a group I highly recommend for actual original music). Sailing is the epic bagpiping piece in the middle to provide a celtic loincloth to the track selection, but a lovely stirring track.Read more ›
