Celtic Woman Releases The Greatest Journey: Essential Collection
Published August 8, 2008

Celtic Woman, the multi-platinum selling Irish sensation, will release The Greatest Journey: Essential Collection on CD and DVD on October 28, 2008.

The accomplished songstresses who make up Celtic Woman have announced the release of The Greatest Journey: Essential Collection on CD and DVD on October 28, 2008 (EMI/Manhattan).


The group first broke onto the scene back in 2005, and since then, their careers have skyrocketed. Now, with more than 3 million CDs/DVDs sold in the US - including gold & platinum album certifications, a #4 debut on the Billboard Top 200 Chart, and being #1 on the Billboard World Music Chart for over 90 consecutive weeks - three hit PBS TV specials, and concerts in front of over 800,000 fans in the US alone, Celtic Woman remains a major force in the contemporary music landscape.


Celtic Woman features the stunning voices of Lisa, Méav, Chloë, Órla, Lynn & Alex and the inspired fiddle playing of Máiréad.  This essential collection of their most beloved and memorable songs will give new fans an opportunity to catch up on their phenomenal success and old fans a chance to reminisce.


With four new songs ("The Call," "Pie Jesu," "Ave Maria," "You Raise Me Up" backed with a gospel choir) and two previously unavailable songs on CD - "Somewhere" from the Live at Slane Castle DVD and "Shenandoah" from the deluxe CD of A New Journey - this album is the perfect holiday gift to new and old fans.
