A Celtic Heartbeat Christmas

Genre: Holiday; Lead Performer: Various Artists

Starting with energetic fiddles by Altan and Ashley MacIsaac, the 14 tracks of A Celtic Heartbeat Christmas paint a picture of Christmas on the Emerald Isle. On the soft side, Aine Minogue’s ”Silent Night” is a breath of fresh Eire, and Celtia’s joyous ”Christmas Pipes” ought to be a holiday standard. The album’s other tracks sound New Age — but with better melodies. B
