5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 12 Nov 2012
By Mattykg
Format:Audio CD
What an absolutely fantastic recording. John Rutter's music is brought to life in a way I never imagined possible by the sublime musicality of Catrin Finch. Catrin's own works though are the highlight of this CD- what a debut! Absolutely brilliant to hear the wonderful ELin Manahan Thomas and Sinfonia Cymru on here too. This CD is a must for any fans of John Rutter, the harp, Wales and Music in general.Buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful! 23 Nov 2012
By FrElise
Format:Audio CD
Absolutely beautiful music, always been a fan of John Rutter and the whole CD is gorgeous, but i particularly love the Celtic Concerto composed by Catrin - its breathtaking harp and gives me those spine tingles when a piece is really emotive - can imagine it as a film soundtrack for something epic! Christmas is easy this year, multiple purchases intended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just wonderful 16 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I had never listen to music played on the harp before.
I love John Rutters music anyway, but the harp playing of Catrin Finch
and the singing of Elin Manahan Thomas made it out of this world.

4.0 out of 5 stars Blessing 17 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
'Blessing' is Interesting and easy listening. I particularly liked the harp music. Nothing more to add - the requirement for a minimum wordcountis pointless.

By RKI

A lovely CD , especially the parts I was interested in - Catrin Finch's Celtic Contero is a pleasure. But then the rest of the CD is good, too. John Rutter has yet to disappoint. Well satisfied.

4.0 out of 5 stars Angelic harp!
I bought this cd primarily for the harp music, which is exquisite. I'm not a huge fan of John Rutter but it isn't bad. The harp sells the cd.

Perfect for a wind-down Sunday afternoon. Great background music and a delight if you have time to listen to the detail. Finch's harp is wonderful and the arrangements are a joy. Read more
