AllMusic Review by

Hallmark's Celtic Romance collects 13 traditional Irish, Scottish, Welsh, and English folk songs like "Wild Mountain Thyme," "My Lagan Love," "Green Grow the Rushes," and "Danny Boy." Performed by vocalists Kate Crossan, Aideen O'Brien, and Rowena Taheny along with a small group of capable instrumentalists, the compilation is more spirited and less generic than the packaging and title would imply, resulting in a decent collection of standards that stand head and shoulders above much of the new age drivel that passes for commercial Celtic music in the 21st century.
