Celtic Woman Warms up Winter with ‘A Christmas Celebration’. Featuring singers ChloI Agnew, Orla Fallon, Lisa Kelly and Meav NI Mhaolchatha, and fiddler MairEad Nesbitt, the album is a joyous celebration of the Christmas season, performed by this Irish supergroup that has captured the imagination of fans across America.One of the more impressive things about A Christmas Celebration is its glowing immediacy. The record’s rich vocals and colorful instrumentals create a concert-like setting, reprising the season’s most loved hymns, carols, and pop standards, along with a Gaelic version of “That Night in Bethlehem.” Unexpected numbers such as “Christmas Pipes” and “Carol of the Bells” (here led by the spirited fiddling of Mariread Nesbitt) only enhance an already engaging disc that finely weaves between the piety of classical music and the playfulness of pop. Chloe Agnew, Orla Fallon, Lisa Kelly, and Meav Ni Mhaolchatha combine their Celtic voices against orchestral arrangements and sparser settings–spiked with the traditional Irish fare of uilleann pipes, harp, and ancient choral harmony–to deliver an assortment of reverent but lively arrangements that wouldn’t be out of place at a church, concert hall, or good Irish celli. –Martin Keller

I was completely surprised at how great it sounded, but before I purchased I went back to check their earlier CDs, and this CD seem to give more music than the newer one, so I purchased and I just love my…

Ok I will admit I am not a big fan of Christmas music. But that was before I heard Celtic Woman sing all of these wonderful Christmas songs like Silent Night, O’Holy Night, White Christmas, Away in a Manger, Christmas Pipes, The Little Drummer Boy and so many more. They give us a wonderful Celtic blend to Christmas music that any Celtic Woman fan will love. This is the Deluxe version and with that you receive a bonus track “Let it Snow”. This track you hear Mairead speak for the first time. She…
