Celtic Sisters: The Women of Ireland, is a treasure of Celtic music sung by various young Irish female singers. Their music springs from one of the liveliest of musical traditions and reflects one of the Western world's oldest cultures. Now from across the Atlantic comes a whole new generation of songwriters and performers featured in this wonderful1998 St. Clair CD release.

Of the 12 tracks in this beautiful compilation of Irish love songs and tales of romances that have either survived or died, my favorite songs are "This Moment" sung by Fiona Joyce, which tells how a woman can feel with her heart for someone. "Ooneyal Rain" by Orla, tells of yearning for a lost love, "I Remember" by Marian Bradfield, is a tale of remembered passion between a woman and her lover. "Everywhere I Go" by Rosemary Woods, tells a story of how love should ideally be with someone. "Little White Lies" (Bradfield again) has a gentle yet bittersweet tempo as she recalls how much she loved someone until their relationship ended.

These are songs that will reach out and touch your heart. There is such power in the singers' voices that I've found myself listening to this CD over and over. The songs can make you feel how love can either lift you to the sky and keep you on Cloud Nine or dash to the ground with the pain of losing the one you love.

Even though some of the songs in Celtic Sisters are indeed very heartrending, nevertheless I am glad that I found this beautiful album while searching for Celtic music to add to my music library.

2.0 out of 5 stars just buy Rebecca Pidgeon April 21 2002
Format:Audio CD
This CD was not what I expected in the least. I saw the CD cover, and not having listened even a little bit, expected old fashioned Celtic folk music. Two tracks live up to that expectation.. #6, The Haughs of Cromdale (by far the best track on the CD) and #1, Fhear a Ohata (also good). These tracks are what make the CD worth buying, if it is at all. But for these songs, you might as well not buy the CD. Those two tracks are by the same artist, Rebecca Pidgeon (by no coincidence), and I would recommend buying Pidgeon's CD "The Four Marys".. which features these two songs, and has a number of other pleasant songs. The two other tracks I like on the CD are #s 4, "Short a Penny" and 12, "High Ground". Track 4 gives me the image of Beggars walking the street in 19th Century Dublin... and Track 4 might as well be a pop song. The main thing I noticed most on this CD is that, excepting tracks 6 and 1, these songs sound more like Country Western/Jazz than Celtic. The vocals are all great, but the lack of Celtic instruments is very dissapointing. Most tracks have piano and bass... which by themselves don't sound Celtic at all. So again, If you are looking for old fashioned Celtic Folk, you're better off with Rebecca Pidgeon's CD than wasting money on this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Celtic Sisters Nov. 18 2002

I was totally surprised when I first listened to this cd. It is a blend between traditional and contemporary celtic music and very beautiful to say the least. It would be useful to note that country or bluegrass music originated from Irish and Scottish imigrants that settled in the "highlands" of America! One can really hear the influence in this music as contempary celtic music takes a classy country turn.

This was a nice CD. Some of the songs are very sad such as Fhear A Bhatah, which tells about a young girl who's lover has gone to sea after proposing to her and never comes back, but some are just nice love songs, I sort of liked it.
