To Warm The Winter's Night

Áine Minogue

In cart Not available Out of stock

BOSTON GLOBE ...Familiar melodies such as "Noel Nouvelle" and "Greensleeves" are delivered gracefully, with gorgeous string and oboe support from Cunningham and Kathy Halverson. Minogue's shy whisper of a soprano delivers a lulling Gaelic version of "Silent Night" and the ethereal "Darkest Midnight...

.... a spellbinding portrait of midwinter's moods and textures. Her harp is austere, never glissando-glossy or aimlessly lush.

...Spun together with brief snatches of spoken narration, this is a tender holiday masterpiece...

THE PATRIOT LEDGER ...a musical treasure...

THE IRISH ECHO ...a haunting and beautiful creation.... on the of the most unusual, original and beautiful Christmas (or should I say Holiday) Albums to appear in a long time...

FOLK ALMANAC ...One of the flat out prettiest Christmas albums to tumble down the chimney in a long time.... This is a soft masterpiece; ancient yet fresh, always lovely, always true to the warm spirits of this cold season...
