The 11th studio album from Ireland's Celtic Woman, 2016's Voices of Angels, showcases the long-running all-female vocal ensemble's sophisticated, harmony-based sound. The album follows up their popular 2015 effort, Destiny, and once again finds them delivering a mix of originals, traditional folk songs, classical pieces, and well-curated pop covers. The album was recorded in Dublin and features Celtic Woman backed by the 72-piece Orchestra of Ireland. Showcased are band vocalists M?ir?ad Carlin, ?abha McMahon, and Susan McFadden. Also showcased is fiddler Tara McNeill, as well as former member and returning guest artist M?av N? Mhaolchatha. ~ Matt Collar
