15 Songs, 59 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Songs from the Heart was recorded live at County Wicklow’s Powerscourt Estate, and the grand setting gives the performance a sense of occasion—helped by the vast accompanying choral, drum, and bagpipe ensembles. Celtic Woman do traditional and pop songs with equal aplomb: Opener “Fields of Gold” is an intimate demonstration of the group's harmonies, while “Amazing Grace” is muscular and full of feeling. The arrangements, too, are impressive, with strings taking center stage in “The New Ground / Isle of Hope, Isle of Tears” and a choir adding depth to “My Lagan Love.”
