J Padraig,

I have too many favorites to list!! laugh.gif May I, instead, just list a few favorite artists? I love Loreena McKennitt and John Doan, and also lots of the Riverdance music, some of Lisa Lynne, Corrs, Chieftains, Pipin Hot, Afro-Celt Sound System, Llewellyn, Ginkgo Garden, and then I have several albums of mixed artists (Celtic Journey, Celtic Twilight,.......) Celticradio should get credit for all of them, too!

Though I'm a big Loreena McKennitt fan, I found my favorite version of Annachie Gordon on a CD by Ivory. The CD is called Gentle Maiden. I suppose what I like about it is that her voice is pure and you can hear every word of the song. And her voice has a lot of emotion to it. This CD also has another favorite of mine...a version of The Moved Through the Fair.

Another favorite is Somebody by Connie Dover.
