This is another difficult choice for me. Since a lot of these songs are re-arranged versions of old favourites, I would like to say that I pick only within the context of this album - both in the song choice and the way they are done. I mean... I don't pick the songs based on how much I like them in general, or how much I like this version compared to a former one. It's still hard. This album is so tightly done - it's like one very big song, done in a very intimate style. The atmosphere is almost chamber music like, and while each track on the album is hard to seperate to the others, the songs have been done before stand entirely on their own from their predecessors - not better or worse versions, more like different songs. So, to pick my favourites I have to go with a sudden mood which might change sooner or later, but here we have: Mo Ghile Mear (which I love, but love differently from the ANJ version, which is my second favourite of all CW songs), Across the World, Danny Boy, You Raise Me Up, Once In Royal David's City, and maybe... I just don't know, I can't really seperate the songs on this album, as I just said a few sentences earlier... no wait, those are five already, I made it! Yay!

Oh gosh, this one is incredibly difficult for me to narrow down to 5. This album is very dear to me, as it was released right in the middle of a period of time in which work related stress and anxiety were so bad that it was turning into depression. Celtic Woman music was the only thing keeping me going through those horrible days at work. I am completely in love with this entire album. ShiningBright, I love what you said about it being one very big song done in an intimate style. Yes, exactly!

To choose 5 at the moment, I went Mo Ghile Mear, For the Love of a Princess, Time to Say Goodbye, A Time For Us and Nil Sen La. If I were to answer this question tomorrow, my choices would probably be different. The same is true of many Celtic Woman albums - I'm constantly changing my mind because I love it all so much.

I went with "As She Moved through the Fair," "For the Love of a Princess," "Dúlaman," "O America," and "A Time For Us," though I debated with "Mo Ghile Mear (My Gallant Star)."

I got up to 6, so for 5 instead I went with Ultimate Absolute Favorite for This Album and Made the Tour it's signature so My Heart Will Go On, Mo Ghile Mear. I also went with what highlighted this album O America, A Time For Us, Nil Sen La because it didn't make it on Homecoming which was sad. My 6th Vote was As She Moved Thru the Fair. Time to Say Goodbye not on the highlights because I love these selections too much it's still amazing but I love the others most! Tara's solos are superb this album not easy to pick 5 because so many great wonderful tracks. Amazing Grace this version would be a toss up with She Moved Thru the Fair I would add those two to make a top 7 list! ;D

My Heart Will Go On💘
Mo Ghile Mear (My Galiant Star)💎🌟
A Time For Us🍁
O America🇺🇸
Nil Sen La🌸
As She Moved Thru the Fair💃
