Eileen Carr - A Mother, A Child - Catholic CD Review


Eileen Carr’s newest CD is her third album since 1980. That album was called Gentle Friends. Then in 1999 she released Pax. Now she brings out this spectacular CD for Christmas entitled A Mother, A Child.

Now, this CD includes some of the Latin hymns from Pax, like Panis Angelicus, Ave Verum Corpus, and Dona Nobis Pacem, as well as Christmas favorites What Child is This, Silent Night, Angels We Have Heard on High, O Holy Night,, as well as the title track, A Mother, A Child. There are 11 tracks altogether.

I was very impressed with the quality of the recording and with Eileen’s voice. She gives the songs a quiet beauty and strength that shows the faith that guides her to record this music. One of the difficulties in receiving music in radio is that I often get cd’s that promise beauty but fall short. No such problem with this CD. The songs sound great–I would be happy to put this CD in my car and crank the volume up!
