Celtic Woman – “Lullaby” (2011)


Label : Manhattan Records

Review by Luisa Mercier

Celtic Woman has always been a synonym for beauty, sweetness, quietness and a certain magic atmosphere.  The present compilation has all of these qualities and it really has a soothing effect on your soul. The girls in Celtic Woman have thought of recording a collection of lullabies and put them all together in this release. Most of these songs have already been performed live by them, but they shine in all their calming melodies.

From the world reknown “Brahm’s Lullaby” who has accompanied most of us as children to “Hush Little Baby”. Other songs are taken from Disney’s classic movies as the opener “When You Wish Upon a Star” from “Pinocchio”, “Stay Awake” from “Mary Poppins” and “Baby Mine” from “Dumbo”. A nice way to go back to our childhood accompanied by the sweet vocals of the girls in Celtic Woman. “Goodnight My Angel” is a cover of Billy Joel, really heavenly, while the very successful “Over the Rainbow” follows and offers an enchanting duet. “Suantrai” is a Celtic-tinged song, the vocals soar towards the sky in an almost mystical atmosphere.

Another song which has been covered multiple time by multiple artists is “Walking in the Air” and maybe this is the most beautiful version I heard after the one made by Nightwish. The orchestral bridge is almost moving. “The Blessing” is an original song by Celtic Woman and it is like a dream cominq true. Really this ensemble of voices is like angels on earth.
