AllMusic Review by

Upon first glance, housed in its festive red, white, and green tin, Allegro's Celtic Christmas: Christmas Treasures looks like a gift shop kiosk afterthought that houses a generic stack of post-present-opening thank you notes, but further inspection reveals a festive, three-disc collection of yuletide favorites ("Angels We Have Heard on High," "Hark the Herald Angels Sing," "We Wish You a Merry Christmas," and "Good King Wenceslas"), and spirited eggnog jams ("Jingle Bells Jig and Keel," "King of the Fairies," and "The Parting Glass"), all of which are delivered to the listeners' ears via the white magic of uilleann pipes, Celtic harp, fiddle, violin, and flute.
