Celtic Christmas: Silver Anniversary Edition features relaxing, soulful Celtic holiday music from Marie Breatnach, Liam O'Flynn, and the West Ocean String Quartet. Breatnach's "Cornphíopa Ciorcalach," Brian Dunning and Jeff Johnson's "Christ Child Lullaby," and Kathleen Keane and Jim Cregan's "The Longing" are some of the highlights from this collection, which is fairly evenly split between traditional Celtic tunes and new material. Performances by Nightnoise, Cormac Breatnach, and Phil Dunning complete this festive yet soothing collection.
