"A mistletoe treat from start to finish" says Earle Hitchner of the Irish Echo Newspaper
"A Star in the East will shine on any Christmas gathering" says Gwen Orel from Irish Music Magazine
"Like most Christmas music, it grows fonder as the years roll along and considering the amount of original material on the recording with familiarity grows a wider appreciation and enhanced performance. No one blends traditional or contemporary Christmas carols with traditional music as adeptly as Madden and CTL as they flow together in set pieces like they were made for one another. It is the hallmark of good musicianship and experience gained over the quarter-century on stage led by the two founding members, Joanie Madden and Mary Coogan." Paul Keating, The Irish Voice
