"I have to admit, I got Celtic Moods for free when I ordered Pure Moods 3 via the telephone therefore didn't have to waste a single penny on it. This cd is excellent. I have been a huge fan of Loreena McKennitt's music for a long time as well as Eleanor McEvoy's so I'm quite familiar with those two artists, along with Sinead O'Connor. I found the melodies hypnotic and transcending. I can definitely get into celtic music after hearing this compilation. I was pleasantly surprised to hear another version of "No Frontier" (which the Corrs covers on their unplugged cd). It didn't dawn on me that this was the same song the Corrs had covered until I heard Mary Black singing it. Other faves include Eleanor McEvoy's "Only A Woman's Heart" and The Edge & Sinead O'Connor's "Heroine". This cd is a must have for fans of Virgin Records' Moods series."

"Celtic Moods is part of Virgin's very successful and highly entertaining "Moods" series of CD's. This one is the most different of the bunch, combining both more contemporary, "New-Age" celtic compositions like Clannad's famous "Theme from 'Harry's Game'" with more traditional pieces. Every song is a keeper. Carter Burwell (who wrote the brilliant music for "Fargo") has two wonderful songs at the start of the disc that set the mood perfectly. Other than the Clannad track, you probably haven't heard much of the rest of these songs before, but after hearing "Sleepy Maggie," "Heroine," and "Woodbrook," you won't forget them. Unlike so many compilations that attempt to capture the unique sound and seductive appeal of Celtic music with unsatisfying B-grade music, this one succeeds. It's a keeper."
