Six time Grammy winners, The Chieftains, are now recognised for bringing traditional Irish music to the world's attention. They have uncovered the wealth of traditional Irish music that has accumulated over the centuries, making the music their own with a style that is as exhilarating as it is definitive.

The Chieftains were formed in 1962 by Paddy Moloney, from the ranks of the top ... Read more in Amazon's The Chieftains Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! 14 Feb 2005
Format:Audio CD
This excellent CD contains twenty-three (!) tunes by the incomparable Chieftains. Most of these wonderful tunes are the Chieftains working with others, such as the Renaissance Singers and even Elvis Costello (St. Stephen's Day Murders has to be heard to be believed). The tunes themselves uphold the Chieftains tradition of excellence, and make an excellent addition to anyone's Christmas music collection. As a matter of fact, I have to say that this CD is so excellent that it is worth listening to at any time of the year. My family and I highly recommend this CD to you.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very distinctive Christmas album 26 July 2011
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
As on several other albums, the Chieftains have assembled an album featuring a stellar cast of guests, this time for a Celtic Christmas album. Several tracks feature either the Renaissance singers (a choir) or the Voice squad (a vocal trio), while most but not all of the other tracks feature a variety of guests.

About half of the songs will be familiar to British and Irish listeners, though not sounding quite as they do here. Some will also be familiar to American listeners, particularly O holy night (sung here by Rickie Lee Jones), O come all ye faithful and God rest ye merry gentlemen.

The opening title track, featuring cathedral bells, gets the album off to a great start. Other highlights for me include I saw three ships (sung by Marianne Faithfull, the French medley (sung by Kate and Anna McGarrigle), Once in Royal David's city and Ding dong merrily on high, but I find this to be an entertaining album from start to finish.

This is very different from my other Christmas albums, but that itself adds to the enjoyment. The quality of the musicianship and singing is also high. If you are looking for a Christmas album with something different to offer, this might be what you are looking for.

I used a couple of tracks for a World Christmas Music programme on community radio. Great to have something fresh and different to the usual fare.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bit Dissapointed 2 Feb 2013
By Michael Finlayson TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I know that I'm being picky, but having spent 2 consecutive Christmasses in hospital my love of Christmas has gone through the roof, and if something is a Christmas product then I like it to have that Christmas vibe. It's the Chieftains so you know that it will be good, but for me it didn't feel as festive as I would like.

3.0 out of 5 stars Christmas angle 23 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Interesting and some nice tunes, perhaps it is the age, but would have liked a bit more bounce throughout the album.
