Flutist James Galway and pianist Phil Coulter seek to present a handful of the most widely recognizable Celtic melodies in Legends. "Danny Boy" gets an intimate flute and piano treatment, while the famed "Riverdance" gets a full orchestral background and uillean pipes solo. There's the evocative, sweet expanse of "Harry's Game," and the classic "Mna na h-Eireann (Women of Ireland), with which Sean O'Rioda helped rekindle Irish interest in the country's musical history. Galway and Coulter go beyond the Celtic border to pay Henry Mancini tribute with the lush television miniseries theme, "The Thornbirds," thus crossing into easy listening and certain radio hit territory. This isn't the blazing traditional Celtic music of the post-1960s generation, nor is it the polyethnic mix of today's young Celtic artists. Instead, Legends is a listener-friendly mix of Celtic moods and lite classical, something for all ages to hum along with. --Andrew Bartlett

Lovely music with classic beauty! Galway and Coulter make a wonderful recording of somewhat familiar songs, but mostly some you don't hear every day! Lovely to listen to while doing other things, but will not put you to sleep either. I have most of their individual recordings, and love this one very much! Highly recommend getting it.

"I had gotten the Legends CD years ago and it became scratched from so much use. Now I have a new one to enjoy. Highly recommend."

"Once again Phil Coulter gives a wonderful musical experience! I have copies made for my vehicle just for the peace and quiet of driving home after a long day....Really lovely Irish music."
