This one kind of came out of nowhere:

CELTIC WOMAN - THE BEST OF CHRISTMAS

https://www.celticcollections.com/shop/celtic-woman-the-best-of-christmas-pre-order/

Celtic Woman's 'The Best of Christmas' features many of the most favourite Yuletide songs performed by the girls over the years. Available to pre-order now. Release Date November 24th.

AVAILABLE TO PRE_ORDER NOW. RELEASE DATE NOVEMBER 24th 2017.

Multi-platinum international music sensation, Celtic Woman returns with the ultimate Christmas Gift: a collection of their very favourite Christmas song. The album features 20 holiday classics and includes performances by many of the former Celtic Women, as well as the angelic voices of the current members Susan McFadden, Mairéad Carlin, Éabha McMahon and the breathtaking new violinist Tara McNeill. Amongst the many great Christmas tracks, the album includes the celebrated verison of 'The Little Drummer boy', Chloe Agnew's brilliant interpretation of 'Walking in the Air' and the recent Celtic Woman interpretation of 'Silent Night'. This album will appeal to all Celtic Woman fans and anyone looking for great Christmas songs.

Following its debut on PBS in 2005, the group has achieved massive success encompassing twelve chart-topping albums, eight DVDs and nine public television specials leading to sales of over ten million albums, with platinum success in nine countries. Each of its CDs – including 2016’s Destiny which was also nominated for a Grammy - has debuted at #1 on Billboard's World Albums chart. The group has been named Billboard Magazine’s #1 World Albums Artist six times.

As a touring powerhouse, the group has performed for over four million fans across 23 countries and six continents, with an especially devoted following in America. The show is renowned for its high-quality entertainment, exceptional musical performances and stunning visual productions, enthralling audiences of all ages.

Analysis:

- It includes tracks from the current lineup as well as previous performers
- I haven't hear anything about the ladies being in the studio recently
- I don't *think* it includes any brand new tracks (unless they have tracks that were previously recorded but never released)
- That album cover look really nice!

Yeah, I found that VERY curious.

I suppose there must be a good reason for it, but I can't think of one off-hand.

I was also a little surprised that Hark The Herald Angels Sing from Home for Christmas didn't make the album, given that it's my own personal favourite song from that album / special and one of my all-time favourite Christmas covers.

Celtic Woman was on RTE Radio 1 with Sean O'Rourke recently to promote their compilation album "The Best of Christmas."

The group performed NEW arrangements of a couple of Christmas classics.

I won't post the set list from the radio show. Instead, I'll leave it to you to be surprised and enjoy!
