Maev's sophisticated voice not suited to the songs on this CD
on November 3, 2013
Her voice is angelic, but her upper-register range (or something) makes it difficult to understand the lyrics. Most of the songs are well-known, so that isn't a problem. More of a problem is that her sophisticated voice seems ill-suited for several of the folk songs and spirituals on the album (e.g. "Shenandoah" -- and "I'm Just a Poor Wayfaring Stranger"!!!??). I got the CD for my wife because she loves Celtic Woman and Maev, but we were both disappointed in the choice of songs on this CD.
