    Difficulty Level:
    Early intermediate
  • December 31, 2007 Excellent!

    I cannot recommend this collection highly enough if you like Celtic music and your standard is early intermediate to intermediate. The arrangements are not really so difficult or complicated as long as you are past the beginner stage (although getting them up to speed requires more skill), but the arrangements...

    are nonetheless really beautiful. This is proper music, even for those who are not yet advanced. I particularly like the fact that music from different Celtic traditions is included - the Welsh and the Breton style I find particularly haunting. I wouldn´t be without it.
