Product Description

Product Description

CHIEFTAINS THE

Amazon.co.uk

Brittany, in western France, is an ancient Celtic homeland whose language and music are closely related to those of Wales and Cornwall. And although Breton folklorist Polig Monjarret only jokingly suggested that the Chieftains do a Breton album, they did just that, and Celtic Wedding remains one of their finest outings. Breton music is subtle when compared to Irish, Scottish and Welsh music, with complex rhythms, rich harmonies, and spin-on-a-dime call-and-response refrains. The venerable Irish sextet seems refreshed and exhilarated by the cross-pollination. Local musicians sit in, playing the bombarde (a notoriously bad-tempered oboe) and biniou (Breton bagpipes), and singing in the Breton language, which is making a strong comeback after long years of repression. --Christina Roden

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent rhythms and melodies well worth the purchase 20 July 1999
By sandy@reedrecruitment.co.nz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I originally purchased this on a whim some time ago and fell in love with the subtle difference between the irish sound and the breton sound. The only problem is that I let my 15 year old bleached haired hard out Tool and Korn freak son listen to it as well. Now I have to try and find the CD in his bedroom if I want to listen to it as he hides the CD so that he has exclusive listening rights!! An unusual turn of events. The music is romantic without being soppy and very evocative for those with a leaning towards past life experiences-my head becomes filled with pictures of past events. It has now sent me on a hunt for any similar type of music-traditional rather than modern as Stone Circle is. Do listen to Celtic Wedding if you are a Celtic music fan. I doubt that you will be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fresh Breeze from the Chieftains 28 July 2000
By Daniel G. Berk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It is difficult not to like a performance by the Chieftains, and this collection is no exception. While the subject matter is a little removed from their usual Irish fare, the high quality which one has come to expect from them is certainly present.

4.0 out of 5 stars May be a little too studious and cultured for many listeners 5 Dec. 2001
By Paul A. Seaman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I like the Chieftains a lot, love some of their music. I love Irish music, especially the moody traditional OR electronic/ethnic updates or variations on the Celtic sound and this album falls in the former category. I find it a little long in the tooth, actually, and have to get into an academic frame of mind to fully appreciate it. I've tried to listen to it several times, but find my mind soon wanders and, unlike so much of the Chieftains music, the tunes don't stay in my head. Definitely a mood piece and best appreciated, I suspect by serious Celtic or Chieftains fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great CD 4 Jan. 2006
By Jen Tyler Turpin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I love this CD. My only wish were that the final song -- which is actually a collection of several songs -- was divided up into the individual songs. Not that it really is a big deal, it would just make listening to it easier.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fresh Breeze from the Chieftains 21 July 2000
By Daniel G. Berk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It is difficult not to like a performance by the Chieftains, and this collection is no exception. While the subject matter is a little removed from their usual Irish fare, the high quality which one has come to expect from them is certainly present. You can almost smell the hills and feel the gentle breezes.
