Voices Of The Angels

"When griping grief the heart doth wound,
and doleful dumps the mind opresses,
then music, with her silver sound,
with speedy help doth lend redress."

William Shakespeare

When I was searching Youtube for examples of Scottish folk music for my last post, I stumbled across this video, and I was literally amazed. The group is called "Celtic Woman".

These women sing with the voices of angels.

It is a song often heard around Christmas time, but I just couldn't wait until Christmas to share this beautiful music:



Incidentally, when I was sharing this with a friend, I pronounced the name of the group, "Seltic woman", and was immediately corrected. The correct pronunciation, I was told, is "Keltic woman"

I said, "Not in Boston".

Happy Thanksgiving, my friend.

God Bless you and your's!

And a gracious Thanksgiving to thee, O thou, my ever decreasing blog commenters.

Of course, I'm guilty, too. Perhaps the shrinking number of comments are directly related to how many times I comment elsewhere, eh?

Why no comments on the music? Doesn't anybody share my enthusiasm for these lovely ladies and their music?

An oversight indeed. I went to YouTube, where I can view these vids without the start/stop action that happens when I click on the offerings at blogs. I checked out the one you posted as well as a couple of others and these ladies are indeed angelic in their interpretations of songs. I've seen them before and your post has awakened me to their awesome talents. Thanks.
