Celtic Woman - famous Irish singing group

Updated on January 25, 2015

Celtic Woman - the music of angels

Celtic Woman is an Irish group of singers with their own special accompaniment provided by Mairead Nesbitt. Other members of the singing group are Chloe Agnew, Orla Fallon, Lynn Hilary and Lisa Kelly. Their harmonies are exquisite and the purity of their voices and music remind me so much of Eva Cassidy. Another lens has covered very eloquently the background and development of Celtic Woman. I just want to bring some of their music together for your enjoyment ( ...and mine as I work on my lenses).

      The recordings made by Meav ni Mhaolchatha, Orla Fallon, Hayley Westenra and Alex Sharpe after departing from CW are the best of their work, much better than their work with CW. Meav's "The Calling," Orla's "Distant Shore," "My Land" and her "Celtic Christmas" with Méav, and Hayley's "Paradiso" are breathtakingly beautiful. My favorite of them all is Alex's "Be Still, My Soul." I admire Lisa Kelly's work with girls in her Peachtree, Georgia voice academy and I understand that Chloe Agnew spends some of her time there. As for Lynn Hilary, her prior work as a featured soloist with the chamber choir Anuna is much more impressive than her work with CW. I have all of the CW CDs as well as all of the post-CW CDs which I mentioned and the Anuna CDs with Lynn.

      They are very captivating. The music is so lovely, it's about as close to "angelic" or "heavenly" as one can get.

      They are great! I especially love Máiréad Nesbitt and Cora Smith play the Strings of Fire performance in Lord of the Dance. How they are playing violine... just must love them!

      Celtic Woman is one of my favorite singing groups. Thank you for putting together such a lovely lens! I'd never heard that song, To Where You Are before, so that was a special treat! :D
