I have never heard a more enchanting and magical Christmas CD than"A Celtic Twist Christmas" by Phil Holland and Dave Palmley of Celtic Twist! The album begins with a medley of six traditional Christmas songs with Holland on harp and Palmley on guitar. The harp throughout this entire CD gives it such an angelic feel...a feel of comfort, peace and joy.
Phil does a remarkable job singing the "Coventry Carol". Her voice is so haungtingly beautiful and befitting for this tune! Dave sings, "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" with such enthusiasm and joy. Together Phil and Dave sing "The Holly and the Ivy" in such a delightful way. And, what would a Christmas CD be without a wee bit of romance? Celtic Twist's song, "Snowfall" was written by both as they sat and watched the world around them turn pure and white from the falling snow...it is superb!
I cannot say enough good about "A Celtic Twist Christmas", but I hope I have said enough to convince you to get it for yourself, a family member, or friend. I know listening to this album will become a Christmas tradition in my home and I certainly wish it will become a tradition in your home too. Thank you Celtic Twist for this lovely Christmas treasure!
