Named for an ancient Celtic harvest festival in honor of the Irish god Lugh, patron of the arts, Lúnasa is indeed a gathering of some of the top musical talents in Ireland. Its members have helped form the backbone of some of the greatest Irish groups of the decade. Joined by the Irish Songstress, Cathie Ryan, Christmas from Ireland will astound listeners. For over twenty-five years, including five solo albums, countless musical collaborations, and multiple awards, Cathie Ryan has been in the vanguard of Irish music. She is blessed with a voice of luminous clarity. The Wall Street Journal calls her music, "a revelation." Orchestra of St. Luke's grew out of a chamber ensemble that gathered in the Church of St. Luke in the Fields in Greenwich Village in 1974. Today, St. Luke's Chamber Ensemble consists of 22 virtuoso artists dedicated to the mastery of a diverse repertoire spanning Baroque to contemporary. The Ensemble forms the artistic core of the Orchestra of St. Luke's, one of America's foremost ensembles.
