    Take Me With You will have you asking for that very thing

    I did not quite know what to expect when I picked up a copy of Lynn's CD during the Celtic Woman spring tour in 2008. I had seen her now in person at a few of the concerts from close up. I knew that I loved her rendition of Dulaman, and the duet with Chloe in Last Rose Of Summer (as well as Mairead's stirring instrumental of it that followed). It is now one of my favorites. This lovely creation is the product of many but mostly Lynn Hilary and Don Mescall. There is lovely instrumentation throughout, most notably piano, guitar, and fiddle. Here is the order of play and some general impressions:

    1) Melody of Life- What a beautiful soft song that produces so many nice visualizations. Nice fiddle break. I'm all about fiddle! Do you remember when you were young and carefree? If you don't this pretty song will remind you of it. I love to sing with this one.
    2) Swimming In The Barrow- Very fast and upbeat piece that's lots of fun. It is clearly a summer song and you can just see the kids playing. I like the guitar in this song, but it is not high on my list on this CD.
    3) Erin Beo- A sad song about the time of the famine. Yet it is a song that is filled with hope and strength. Easy to get a bit teary eyed with this one. Many Irish home and abroad will be touched by this. Some of us not so Irish as well.
    4) Sunset Of Gold- Sounds a lot like some of the things I write. This is light and whimsical. Don sings parts of this song as well. Why not, he wrote it! There is some nice piano and guitar here and it touches on what many of us have felt in life. How many times have you wanted to just run off with the one you love and head for a remote island? It is a common dream very well put in this song.
    5) Carolina Rua- Very fun and upbeat piece about a school girl that seems to have enchanted a few folks. This has a bit of a Spanish feel to it. A real toe tapper and fun to sing with. She now performs this on the new Celtic Woman Isle Of Hope Tour.
    6) Annie Watches- A gentle love song with Lynn playing the guitar. She's very good at that too.
    7) What Makes The Sunset- Sort of a piano bar/jazz/blues sound. I'll put a few bucks in the glass for you Lynn.
    8) Take Me With You- Title track and this one just sweeps me away. I have so many images in my head with this one. There is some lovely fiddle work by Zoe Conway, and that, along with the words, puts a certain fiddler in my head. "Pale blue butterfly, dancing in the summer breeze". Yep.
    9) Shona Mara- Another tear jerker about the time of the famine. Two lovers are parted yet will meet again, but not in life. Gets me every time. So sad.
    10) Slan Le Maigh- A lovely song sung a cappela in Irish. Haunting and gentle. This really showcases her voice well.
    11) Road To Glory- A strong, upbeat song about life on the road for people like Lynn who give their gifts to us by performing. I love to sing with this one as you can really crank it up and belt it out. Don't worry, Lynn. There's somebody there.
    12) Angel Doves- Sort of a lullaby. Sweet and gentle. Lovely way to end.
    The CD booklet comes with all of the lyrics but there are a couple of typos in it. If you don't have this CD you're missing a huge boat. This will give you hours of great pleasure and take you from tearful sorrow to happy highs. Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy. Do your friends and family a favor and get them one too.
