The Wide World Over is a 40th anniversary, greatest hits-like compilation by worldwide famous Irish musical group The Chieftains. It gathers tracks from The Chieftains in China until Water from the Well, as well as four new releases.

"When a group like the Chieftains survives to play music together for forty years Ireland, and indeed, the world, has every reason to celebrate. And one of the primary reasons for the relatively phenomenal success of the Chieftains is their willingness to embrace change. Evidence of which is contained, in abundance, on this CD. Back when Paddy Moloney (uilleann pies and tin whistle), Sean Keane (fiddle); Derek Bell (harp/piano); Kevin Conneff (bodhran/vocals) and Matt Molloy (flute) first played together, they performed purely folk music. Music like March of the Kings of Laois/Paddy's Jig/O' Keefe's The Chattering Magpie, which kicks off this collection. Or Live From Matt Molloy's Pub, a track from their last album,Waters From The Well, which brought the Chieftains right back to their roots.

But time and again along the way founder member Paddy Moloney has insisted on pushing the musical boundaries of the group further than maybe even he could have conceived was possible forty years ago. Indeed, what other group could make the leap from largely improvised reels to meticulously arranged and orchestrated movie music such as Morning Dew/Women of Ireland, The Love Theme From Barry Lyndon, then cross cultural boundaries and slip so easily into a track like Guadalupe, complete with Txalaparta introduction? Or slide into the heart of country music to perform tunes like Cotton Eyed Joe with Ricky Skaggs, and Full of Joy with a Chinese Band? ~
