Thanks Kim! Reviewer: Daryl Banks (Bath, Maine)
I heard this for the first time on the radio in Connecticut in 1995 and I thought it was so beautiful. I've been enjoying Kim's heavenly celtic harp ever since!

My husband and I love Celtic Christmas I & II and were so to learn we could get more music by Kim Robertson.

Play in Church Reviewer: Rev. Hickson (, )
I have played Celtic Christmas before the liturgies at Christmas time in church for a number of years. Comments have been favorable and a number of people have bought the CD and say it is their favorite Christmas album.
Elegant, lilting Christmas carols on solo harp Reviewer: Brianna Neal (, )
Talented harpist and creative arranger Kim Robertson has a way of making even the most familiar tunes artful, interesting and uniquely her own. Her simple but pleasant arrangements here are rich, warm and delicate, taking full advantage of her instrument and her abilities. The "Celtic" in this album's title reflects the fact that Robertson plays a Celtic harp rather than the source of the carols themselves. Her musical material is predominantly English or French and predominantly familiar to modern ears, though the lesser known selections from the Middle Ages and Renaissance are lovely additions. Unnamed flute and bell players contribute in the background of several of the pieces, but the harp remains the focus. Robertson's delicate and artful celebration of the holiday season continues on "Celtic Christmas II", where she is joined by cellist Virginia Kron. For other gentle holiday cheer featuring harp, try "A Winter's Night" by Ensemble Galilei or "Ancient Noels" by Ensemble Galilei and Maggie Sansone.
Best Christmas CD I've Ever Owned Reviewer: Istude (North Hollywood, CA)
Kim Robertson has the talent and ability to take a simply lovely piece and make it multi-dimensional with patterns and shadings you never thought possible. The opening track reels you in, and you are held spellbound until the last note of the last track is played. This CD is a must-have!
Ardas is incredible. Please re-issue the Celtic Christmas CD Reviewer: Customer (, )
I was recently gifted with "Ardas" from the Crimson Collection Volume Six and have never been so spiriturally moved. I was then told by a friend that the Kim Robertson Christmas CD is the best she's ever heard. However, It appears to be out of stock. May we have some more, please?
By far,my favorite christmas CD Reviewer: Customer (, )
Twenty years ago,I happened to be in a gift shop on the Jersey shore.When I walked into the shop, I was surrounded by this beautiful harp music. Being a music teacher myself I quickly bought a copy of the tape. (CD's were not even available then) Two years ago in a local bookstore, I happened to come upon the C.D, and it is almost as worn out as the tape. Since that time I have been searching for anything else of Kim's, but to no avail, until someone suggested I try Invincible.
Can't Go Wrong Reviewer: K. Petty (Pinewood, TN)
If you're looking for Christmas songs that don't get on your nerves, then this CD might work for you. It's extremely mellow and great for background music around the fireplace, or you may want to fall asleep by it. It isn't what I had in mind when I ordered Celtic music (as I was expecting something a bit more lively), but it is Celtic, nonetheless. The arrangements are reverent and, at times, have a fantasia quality to them being that the predominant instrument is a harp.
Made for a very mellow Christmas Reviewer: J. A. McDonald (Wichita Falls, TX)
AWSOME! I've first heard this harp music by Kim Robertson when I bought a tape over 15 years ago. I listened to it over and over while I was seriously ill in hosp and it was a life saver for my peace and tranquility. I still have the tape but have ordered the CD to play on my Bose which I play often especially during the Chirstmas season.
Truly a gift Reviewer: Tera Beta Neal (Dayton, OH)
Undeniable spiritual quality infuses this music. Angels seem to inhabit it, ministering to the listener. Mere stereo speakers suddenly receive the capability to exude warmth and love; harsh events occurring in the world are shut out by an overwhelming gentleness. Put this on the stereo at Christmastime and create a background of peace and joy. This is truly a gift to the entire world for Christmas.
Best ever Christmas music Reviewer: Francine Falk-Allen (San Rafael, Ca)
This is absolutely the best Christmas music we have in our extensive collection. We have worn out the tapes, need to buy the CD, and never tire of it. It is great to listen to the soft sounds of harp playing some of the best Christmas melodies ever written, while decorating the tree or wrapping gifts. It makes me feel connected to my ancestors while I continue traditions that for me have never lost meaning. This and her sequel album are definitely high on my list of my favorite things about Christmas.
