    Review by Kathy Parsons
    A Celtic Dream is the companion songbook to Michele McLaughlin’s 2009 CD by the same name, faithfully transcribed by the amazingly accurate Rebecca Oswald. Inspired by a trip to Ireland, several of the songs are lively and upbeat, creating a great variety of moods and playing styles. The playing level of this book is pretty consistent – level 3 and 4 – which would be an upper intermediate level. More advanced players will enjoy the vivid colors of the music and the potential for an emotionally expressive outlet. Although there are a few octave runs, there are very few chords and no reaches of more than an octave. Most of the left hands parts are repeated broken chord patterns that are easy to pick up. This is really a fun book to play, and I recommend it! It is available from michelemclaughlin.com.

    Below is a list of the songs in the book, listed in the order they appear on the CD. I have included the key signatures and how many sharps and flats are in those keys, the level of difficulty on a scale of 1-5 compared to Michele’s other pieces (with 1 being the easiest and 5 the most advanced), and the number of pages.

    Summer Solstice – Key of A Minor (no sharps or flats) – level 4 – 6 pages
    Slainte – Key of C (no sharps or flats) – level 3 – 5 pages
    A Celtic Dream – Key of A Minor – level 3 – 3 pages
    Irish Rain – Key of D Minor (1 flat) – level 4 – 7 pages
    Across the Burren – Key of A Minor – level 4 – 5 pages
    Finn McCool – Key of C Minor (3 flats) – level 4 – 4 pages
    Lament – Key of C – level 1 – 3 pages
    The North Sea – Key of C Minor – level 4 – 7 pages
    The Druid’s Prayer – Key of A Minor – level 3 – 4 pages
    The Clurichaun – key of A Minor – level 4 – 3 pages
    Glenveagh Castle – Key of C – level 3 – 4 pages
    Causeway Coastline – Key of G Minor ( 2 flats) – level 4 – 6 pages
    For the Lambs – Key of C – level 3 – 3 pages
