Songs from the Heart is the fifth offering from the Celtic Woman quintet. With some alternating membership, it sticks close to producer and arranger David Downes' (of Riverdance fame) vision/formula: these women sing contemporary and traditional Celtic songs and well-known standards backed by a choir, Celtic folk instruments -- bodhran, fiddle, Uilleann pipes, and bagpipes -- a full backing band, and an orchestra. Lisa Kelly does a tender reading of of Sting's "Fields of Gold," as an opener, while the entire group participates in an overblown version of "Amazing Grace," complete with bagpipes. There is a lovely version of the traditional ballad "Nil S‚'n L " once more sung by the quintet with killer bodhran playing by Ray Fean. The song selection here is somewhat more eclectic than on previous albums, as evidenced by a complex, spit-shined and polished take on the Phil Collins-penned Disney tune "You'll Be in My Heart" for an Alex Sharpe solo, the British Isles standard "My Lagan Love," and even Dvor k's "Non C'Š Pi—." ~ Thom Jurek
