Celtic Woman

Music CD - 2004

CELTIC WOMAN is the brainchild of David Downes, a composer/conductor who was heavily involved with the American production of RIVERDANCE. Not surprisingly, all of the lights, drama, and musical bombast of that esteemed show are present on this production as well. Instead of showcasing legions of dancers, however, CELTIC WOMAN puts the emphasis on the rich heritage of traditional and contemporary Irish music, as performed by five talented female performers from varying musical backgrounds. Though the melodies are often extremely simple and unadorned, the production is just as lush and majestic as anything on Yanni's LIVE AT THE ACROPOLIS, and should appeal to fans of that disc. The opening track features the extraordinary, bell-like vocal timbre of 15-year-old Chloe Agnew over an orchestral backing that includes tin whistle. "Isle of Inisfree" showcases Orla Fallon, whose dark voice and supple harp playing make for a haunting listening experience. On numerous tracks, several of the Irish sirens sing together; a particular standout is a soothingly sweet version of Enya's breakthrough hit "Orinoco Flow."

Most amazing book ever!!! Has almost all of the Celtic Womans' most popular songs with the music and chords. I used this music for my talent show performance of 'One World' by the Celtic Woman. The book is super awesome and I am the biggest Celtic Woman fan, especially Chloë Agnew and this book is great for want to be Celtic Woman girls!!! I went to buy this book I loved it so much!

Very good listening - Irish Celtic orchestrated music sung by 5 females. I particularly enjoyed their version of Orinoco Flow, as well as Danny Boy, and You Raise Me Up.

Good double bill with Pacifika's "Amor Planeta" - try them both!
