    Multi-platinum international music sensation, Celtic Woman returns with the ultimate Christmas Gift: a collection of their very favourite Christmas song.

    Analysis:

    - It includes tracks from the current lineup as well as previous performers
    - I haven't hear anything about the ladies being in the studio recently
    - I don't *think* it includes any brand new tracks (unless they have tracks that were previously recorded but never released)
    - That album cover look really nice!

    Celtic Woman was on RTE Radio 1 with Sean O'Rourke recently to promote their compilation album "The Best of Christmas."

    The group performed NEW arrangements of a couple of Christmas classics.

    I won't post the set list from the radio show. Instead, I'll leave it to you to be surprised and enjoy!
