Review: Celtic Woman Believe Live

Once of the quickest ways I know to mellow is to watch and/or listen to Celtic Woman.  The group is comprised of Chloe Agnew, Lisa Kelly, Lisa Lambe and violinist Mairead Nesbitt.  Believe DVD is a live concert from their sold out show in Atlanta GA this past September.  They open with the stunning song, Awakening.  It is a vibrant song that truly awakens you!  This is followed with classic Irish songs, timeless pop songs (Bridge Over Troubled Water), and inspirational songs (Ave Maria) with their classic Celtic woman twist.

Once again, Celtic Woman have put out some beautiful music.  The DVD is striking.  The beauty of these women, the dresses, the colors and lights make the DVD feel quite mystical.  If you are a Celtic Woman fan, you will not be disappointed.  If you aren't yet, but looking for music that will mellow you and inspire you all at the same time, make sure you check it out! One of my favorites is the Téir Abhaile Riú, which is an Irish Song.  The Ave Maria is also one of my favorite.  I feel transported to somewhere else when listening to it!

1. Awakening
2. Follow On
3. The Foxhunter
4. Nocturne
5. Sailing
6. Bridge Over Troubled Water
7. Black Is The Colour
8. The World Falls Away
