Paul Winter & Friends
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I became hooked on Paul Winter's music some four years ago, when it was recommended to me that I listen to "Prayer for the Wild Things." That album grabbed and has yet to let go, and it led to my acquiring all of Paul Winter's albums, most recently "Celtic Solstice."
I have now had "Celtic Solstice" for some four weeks, and have since lost count of the number of times it has been played. More-or-less coincident with St. Patrick's Day, and purely as a lark, I decided to be a "music reviewer" for the album, without amazon.com in mind. (The original intended audience was significantly smaller.)
Being able to write this review is a double treat: If it happens that I am an early customer to write an amazon.com review of "Celtic Solstice," that would be a personal honor. At the same time, it gives me an opportunity to share my opinions with other amazon.com browsers, which I trust can be helpful to them. It is difficult for me to imagine just who would be disappointed...
I got this albmu shortlyafter it won the 1999 Grammy award and I must say, I'm glad I did. This music is very soft, quiet, soothing, and very peaceful. It filled the atmosphere with wonderful sounds from the uillean pipes, organ pipes, low whistle, harp, and many other wonderful instruments, even the soprano saxaphone. I was very amazed that the soprano saxaphone, played by Paul Winter, made such a serene heavenly sound. There were many talented musicians like Davy Spillane, Eileen Ivers, Carol Thompson, and many others. Karan Casey very beautifully sang "Golden Apples of the Sun" and "Sweet Comeraghs". This music expressed the Celtic spirit and emotions. It transported me all the way to Ireland and sounded so much like the soundtrack of Ireland. It is pure Celtic. The only problem is that this CD has been labeled "New Age" rather than Celtic. This music expresses the many feelings of the Celts, today and long ago.
The combination of soprano sax,organ and pipes is an awesome sound.One is transported to Ireland with sound. Hauntingly beautiful! We have listened to it a number of times and with each session a new image appears. Paul winter is magical and the voice of Karan Casey is breathtaking!
