It's Lisa Kelly who's on this Celtic Woman CD, she's in all the CDs/DVDs so far.
This is my favorite of the Celtic Woman albums available. This show not only contains the five beautiful Irish voices of the Celtic Woman group but my favorite female voice Hayley Westenra joins them adding her lovely unique voice to their songs! I am also a huge fan of the 'A New Jorney' show on DVD which I own and my sister and I enjoy immensely. The sets and fabrics of their dresses are fabulous (their dresses are quite low cute). Our favorite song is 'At The Ceili' (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mr9kSKycZbM) but we also love 'The Spanish Lady' (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LHOyPLSVam4).
I miss Maev, Hayley and especially Orla now that they've left the group. Their voices added so much to the group songs. Lynn Hilary and Alex Sharpe joined Lisa and Chloe for their recent recordings & shows but their voices are all rather similar to one another so it's just not the same.

A couple of these songs I recognize from a video game called Endless Ocean: Blue World. It was very lovely music!

Thanks for the info, Miss Laurie! I'll go change that after I finish this comment. :) I like "Spanish Lady", it's a fun song. :) I have noticed that some of the dresses are lower than I'd prefer (definitely!), but they are pretty! I haven't watched many (any?) of the videos though. Another favorite is "Someday."

Elegance of Fashion: I didn't know that! Very interesting.

So do you ladies think I should continue with occasional (aka, rare) CD/song reveiws? I think I might put up a poll later. Anything else I should include?

The CD/Song reviews would be good. It will really add variety to your reviews. :-)

I think more CD and song reviews would be great. People are always on the look-out for good music to enjoy while they're reading. I always think books, music and films go hand-in-hand.
