I listened to Jason Tonioli's 'Favorite Hymns' album on Spotify.

O...M...G!!!!

The album was beautifully arranged, deeply moving, and tremendously satisfying!

The songs are soft and soothing.

The harmony was crystal clear and quite frankly, breathtaking.

CaraNua or its members are featured on every track except the last one, which is a pleasant instrumental.

The instrumental backing, mostly piano with a touch of orchestration, really compliments their voices. There are some really nice instrumental bridges in some of the songs.

Lynn's solo 'How Great Thou Art' is one of the best Lynn Hilary solos I have ever heard. WOW!!!

Edel's solo is 'Nearer My God To Thee' and it is both lovely and haunting. I was kind of hoping for a three-part harmony with this one, but considering how gorgeous Edel sounded, I have no complaints whatsoever. I loved the little Titanic Easter egg!

This album is really well done and I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Some Key Notes

- Lynn more outgoing than she used to be
- There was a signing after the show
- "Favorite Hymns II" tentatively scheduled for May, 2018!  :o
- They're also tentatively considering a FALL TOUR in 2018!!!!!

Please, PLEASE do another concert, ladies. I will find a way to be there...


Here's some pictures from CaraNua's debut concert in North America.

I really like the dresses and the way their hair was done for this show. Absolutely stunning!!!!  :o








Last but not least...

CaraNua recorded an acapella cover of A Million Dreams (from The Greatest Showman) in Utah before they returned to Ireland.

This is so gorgeous it's a must-listen!

That is some of the most beautiful and crystal clear harmony I have ever heard!
