LOS ANGELES, CA  -  Monday, March 21, 2011

Alfred Music Publishing, the print music publisher of thousands of popular artists, releases the officially licensed Celtic Woman: The Greatest Journey songbook for easy piano, arranged by Carol Tornquist.

The Celtic Woman: The Greatest Journey folio is a comprehensive highlight of the all-female musical ensemble’s repertoire in an album-matching songbook arranged for easy piano, including chord symbols and lyrics. Memorable songs include "The Call," "Pie Jesu," "Ave Maria," "You Raise Me Up," and many more.

Music producer Sharon Browne and David Downes, former musical director of the Irish stage show Riverdance, created the group Celtic Woman to showcase Ireland’s finest female vocalists and performers, whose repertoire ranges from traditional Irish tunes to contemporary songs. Affectionately described as “Riverdance for the voice,” the group has sold over six million albums worldwide.

The songbook contains two bonus arrangements, "Mo Ghile Mear" and "Spanish Lady," from Celtic Woman’s live performance at Slane Castle. Four pages of beautiful color photographs are also included.

Celtic Woman: The Greatest Journey (00-34939) is now available for $19.99 at music retail stores and at alfred.com.
