Rich and sparkling! Reviewer: Brianna Neal (, )
If a Celtic harp for Christmas is good, then a harp and cello are even better. The deep, smooth richness of Virginia Kron's cello perfectly balances Kim Robertson's sprightly, sparkling harpestry. The musical fare is similar to that of Robertson's solo album, "Celtic Christmas"--traditional holiday carols, many familiar and few obscure, but all enjoyable. Peaceful, resonant and calming, this is perfect music to counterbalance the dreaded holiday stress. Put on some warm slippers, sip a fragrant herbal tea and let yourself unwind. Robertson and Kron also recorded another lovely album together, the warm-hearted "Gratitude", which is sure to win your heart as well. Two other gently entrancing Christmas recordings worth checking out are Norland Wind's "December Journey" and "One Wintry Night" by hammered-dulcimer player Jerry Read Smith and his wife, flutist Lisa Maria Smith.
These Make the Best Christmas Gifts! Reviewer: a shopper (, B.C.)
I always buy a couple before the holidays and give them to people I meet through my work. So far everyone has loved them and thought they are such thoughtful gifts. I get them because I love the music but it also simplifies that part of my Christmas shopping. No one has caught on to my scheme yet!
a warm thank you! Reviewer: Robin (, AL)
Thank you for the beautiful music you have given with such harmony and craft through your instruments - the harp and cello. My family and I have found your music very inspirational and also relaxing (our 14 month old little girl sleeps well with such music playing). I'm glad to think she is being musically influenced by the way you play.
Family Time Music Reviewer: Laura Kenz (, New Hampshire)
My family absolutely loves Celtic Christmas II. My 12 year old daughter wants to learn celtic harp. Thanks for the beautiful music!
Beautiful!!! Reviewer: Nikkie (Sacramento, California)
I bought Celtic Christmas II a week ago and can't put it down. All other Christmas music doesn't compare. The cello with harp - what emotion!
A Holiday Favorite Reviewer: Jan Golde (Glastonbury, CT)
My niece and nephew always come over to visit with my husband and I for the holidays and always want to hear, "the pretty Christmas music." Listening to this CD during the holidays has become a family tradition. I highly recommend it for any time of the year!
Kim and Virginia are the best together! Reviewer: Kenneth L. (, )
I thoroughly enjoyed this CD. Virginia Kronís cello playing in unmatched.
Definitely recommended Reviewer: Barbara Routliffe (, )
My favourite Christmas CD of all! Kim Robertson captures the essence of Christmas with her angelic sound. The pieces on the CD are absolutely beautiful and it is the perfect thing to listen to on a cold winter's night by the fire. I would definitely recommend this CD to others.
Outstanding Reviewer: Anna Claire (, )
This album has become part of my Christmas tradition. I orignally bought it as a cassette way back when and listened to it so many times it wore out. Sooo I just had to upgrade and get a CD. Obviously, this music has staying power.
Centering melodies Reviewer: Deborah Tinch (, )
This album was one I listened to all through Christmas. Its peaceful centering melodies will keep you from the frazzled feelings the season, and family, can cause!
Cello is wonderful Reviewer: Guitarist (, )
This album is my favorite Christmas music. The blend of the harp with the cello is spectacular. Just a wonderful, relaxing, and beautiful sound.
The greatest! Reviewer: Marcy (, )
Just about my favorite Christmas album! I always loved the harp but pairing it with the cello is fantastic. Beautiful interweaving melodies.
