Reviews For The Wexford Carol By Artist Yo-Yo Ma & Alison Krauss


    By Smaugmike
    This is the best holiday song I have heard in a long time, probably since 'That Spirit of Christmas' by th e late great Ray Charles. It really touches your soul. And, I'm a heavy metal / hard rock fan! Merry Christmas to all!
  • Beautifully Done!

    By Coffeegirl09
    This was done beautifully. What a wonderful combination of Yo-Yo ma and Alison Krauss! Thank you for singing about what the center of Christmas truly is and should be to us. Bravo!

    By sparkie40
    it is simplistic in a very peaceful and artisic sense. allison krause is beautiful, and with one the most beautiful voices in any music genre. yo yo ma is an artist simply put, pure and natural. this is a beautiful celtic song, with really nice accompaniments by the bagpipes. i love it!
  • Alison Krause does it again

    It seems that Alison's talent has no end. Her version of the Wexford Carol is magnificent - so beautiful to listen to. Yo-Yo Ma's accompaniment (and the excellent back-up orchestra) makes this extra special.
  • Beautiful, Haunting, and Inspiring

    Got this with the free Starbucks "pick of the week." Put it on "repeat one" and let it play several times. Wonderful combination of Yo-Yo Ma's Cello, Alison Krauss' divine voice, and the bonus of bagpipes and turkish cymbals.
  • I missing something?

    Love both artists, and the song is beautiful. But to give Yo-Yo Ma top billing for base-line accompaniment on this video, when he is almost unnoticeable, seems odd.
  • Beautiful voice, violin, video!

    By DGWrites2
    This video is truly beautiful to watch and listen to. I got this as a free download from Starbucks and am interested in getting the entire holiday album of diverse guest artists performing holiday favorites. I love the Wexford Carol and Alison Krause sings it with her clear soprano voice, accentuated so nicely by the effortless violin playing of master Yo-Yo Ma. This is just the thing to listen to on a quiet, cold night in December.
  • Go-Go Yo-Yo!

    What a great video. Very much just folks who really care about creating a fascinating aural landscape doing what they do best, live in the studio. Being a hobbyist/fanatic songwriter & multi-instrumentalist, I love seeing music being created. Add to that a deep genealogy factor, maybe race memory: in the mists of time, as my ancestors migrated from Scotland into Ireland, the clan settled primarily in County Wexford. So it's sort of a family tradition, this tune, and I love the Celtic instrumentation in this piece. All this and Alison Krauss' beautiful voice as haunting as ever. I really was impressed at seeing her interpret the printed music "on the fly." Trust me when I say she nails it. Yo-Yo Ma has got to be one of the most engaging musicians ever, too. His love for music at its purest always comes through just watching him and the cello, which is a natural extension of his body. This is a beautiful piece of rare, but most introspective and lovely holiday music. Well worth it.

Music is the art of arranging sounds in time to produce a composition through the elements of melody, harmony, rhythm, and timbre. It is one of the universal cultural aspects of all human societies. General definitions of music include common elements such as pitch (which governs melody and harmony), rhythm (and its associated concepts tempo, meter, and articulation), dynamics (loudness and softness), and the sonic qualities of timbre and texture (which are sometimes termed the "color" of a musical sound). Different styles or types of music may emphasize, de-emphasize or omit some of these elements. Music is performed with a vast range of instruments and vocal techniques ranging from singing to rapping; there are solely instrumental pieces, solely vocal pieces (such as songs without instrumental accompaniment) and pieces that combine singing and instruments. The word derives from Greek μουσική (mousike; "(art) of the Muses"); see § Etymology and glossary of musical terminology.

Music can be divided into genres (e.g., country music) and genres can be further divided into subgenres (e.g., country blues and pop country are two of the many country subgenres), although the dividing lines and relationships between music genres are often subtle, sometimes open to personal interpretation, and occasionally controversial. For example, it can be hard to draw the line between some early 1980s hard rock and heavy metal. Within the arts, music may be classified as a performing art, a fine art or as an auditory art. Music may be played or sung and heard live at a rock concert or orchestra performance, heard live as part of a dramatic work (a music theater show or opera), or it may be recorded and listened to on a radio, MP3 player, CD player, smartphone or as film score or TV show.
