All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
A sleeve note helpfully divides the seven female Celtic performers on this disc into "singer-songwriter Marian Bradfield, Fiona Joyce, Roots Maighread Ni Dhomhnaill & Aine Furey and experimental Celtic Loreena McKennitt, Melanie O'Reilly & Rita Connolly." In practice, you would say that they actually have much in common, in that they are all backed by acoustic instruments on tunes mostly played at slow tempos with lyrics that concern female issues of romance, reflection, and empowerment.

In practice, you would say that they actually have much in common, in that they are all backed by acoustic instruments on tunes mostly played at slow tempos with lyrics that concern female issues of romance, reflection, and empowerment. But you would also point out further divisions: Melanie O'Reilly's music leans toward jazz, while Loreena McKennitt something of a ringer here, since she is much better known than the others and gets only one track, the lead-off one is often classified as new age. On the whole, the sampler suggests that Celtic music has many different areas for development, both by men who turn up as instrumentalists, harmony vocalists, and songwriters and women, and that some of those heard here are ready to pursue those areas.

    Wonderful collection, WMP problems

    If you put your disc in the computer and if you use Windows Media Player to play your music, be aware, the titles do NOT match up. "Ripples in the Rockpools" comes up as [Huron "Beltaine" Fire Dance]. If you move the track titles and all of that information up, deleting the information that is listed as this track, everything else falls in place correctly excluding Track 1 and Track 13. 1 is "Moorlough Shore" by Emm Gryner and 13 is Fiona Joyce's "This Moment". The correct information is printed on the cd however it's not imprinted or whatever. I just wanted to warn you of this. I love the cd though, don't get me wrong! It is absolutely wonderful and soothing/relaxing. I listen to it when I find the time for a bubble bath and whenever I find time away from the baby.
