She varies songs and borrows heavily from Latin rhythms, Berio riffs, classical romantic melody and a bit of chaos thrown in for good measure. Covers include Vaya Con Dios and the classic Syd Barrett tune Bike produced by Peter Principal from Tuxedo Moon.

The Blossom and the Rain
Carol Thompson, Celtic Harp
 "While Carol's unique style evokes the drawing rooms of the nineteenth century, it also evokes the halls of the ancient aristocracy, and gives equal due to the cottages where most of the music was created."
— Darcy Fair

(with a few tunes from Scotland and Shetland thrown in for spice)
with skill, wit, soulfulness and sense of oneness with the heart of the music.

The Enchanted Isles
Carol Thompson
 "This recording, as its title implies, is enchanting . . . Of this traditional music, and of Thompson's performance, the phrase 'hauntingly beautiful' is appropriate, but falls woefully short."
— Fanfare (U.S.A.)

The Faerie Isles
A collection of Celtic favorites from Carol Thompson's previous releases:
The Enchanted Isles, Carolan's Welcome and The Peacock's Feather.
