--Cory C. Engel, CelticChristianTunes - August 2001
This CD is a real find. Caroline Bowles brings a warmth and freshness to this eclectic collection of Christmas and traditional melodies
Why have I not heard of Caroline before? She is an original talent. Her voice has a rare and entrancing combination of achingly pure tone and sensual warmth. She's always sincere but never earnest.
Bowles clearly takes pleasure in broad musical pallette. Celtic, folk and gospel influences echo though the album. Enya-like resonances meet the haunting simplicity of the Voix Bulgares. There's a lively musical intelligence at work here.
David Pearl - Lively Arts, London. January 2001
Sensual vocals and velvety strings put Christmas Carols at the top of my list for seasonal listening. This album has a beautiful classical new-age feel. Don't expect any up-tempo pop beats or ballads here; this is expressive heart warming music.
Caroline's outstanding performances, vocal purity, sensual warmth and comfort, and a soothing musical seascape of acoustic and electronic instruments, make her music so easy listening, especially for late nights and relaxation.
