Excellent concert, beautifully performed and staged. Set in the grounds of an Irish stately home. I had watched it on Sky Arts and liked it so much I decided to buy it and be able to watch it without adverts. It was from U.S.A. but is not locked to Region 1.
Another great performance from Celtic Woman,amazing that the're not more popular in Ireland or the UK,lovely setting at Powerscourt gardens,had some good Irish weather in filming with lots of rain before the night but you wouldn't realise that in the final production.Since the last dvd there's been a couple of new singers to the group,was really impressed with Lynn Hillary ,what a performance with 'My Lagan Love' which was superb.Chloe and Lisa are as wonderful as ever with 'When you believe and Fields of Gold'.Good mix of traditional and modern pieces 'Isle of Hope Isle of tears'was a nice song about the thousands of immigrants from Ireland to America who were checked through Ellis Island for a new life,finishing with 'You raise me up',all in all a great dvd with well over an hours beautiful music for all tastes,just a plea for Celtic Woman from all your fans,when are you coming to the UK/Ireland for a tour?
Whilst enjoying a winter vacation in Florida, and engaging in some TV channel hopping one evening, my wife and I chanced upon a recording of the Celtic Woman concert from Powerscourt House on the PBS channel. For over two hours we were captivated by the voices, the songs, the musical accompaniment and above all by the superb performances of five very talented young ladies, Chloe, Lynn, Alex, Lisa and Mairead. I recommend this DVD to anyone who loves tuneful music delivered in a style that amply demonstrates the outstanding musical talents of the girls. They sing quite beautifully, all the songs are memorable and the arrangements and direction by David Downes complement the magnificent setting of Powerscourt. No wonder they are so big in the USA. Buy the DVD - you will not regret it.
I love Celtic Woman and this is one of my favourite DVDs. There are beautiful songs with delightful harmonies, fantastic arrangements, wonderfully accompanied by superb musicians and to top it all sung by lovely girls with angelic voices. What more could you ask for?
Our one-year-old grand-daughter likes the music videos of this group on Virgin cable and sings - or la's - along with them, so we bought this DVD to keep her amused. Whenever we play it, she stands in front of the TV and dances along to the songs.
