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.”

Beautiful

This is one of my favorite Celtic Woman CDs/performances. I especially love Amazing Grace and You Raise Me Up (I think it’s their best version of these songs), also The Call. Wonderful. 👍

Celtic Rip-Off

I thought this was from the PBS Celtic Woman. It is not. Thin, weak voiced, electronic bag-pipes, I've heard better singing in the shower at the gym.
