A very beautiful collection of songs
Damon Denys | Salt Lake City, UT United States | 02/03/2000

"From beginning to end, this disk soothes the soul. With songs contributed by some of the greatest names in traditional celtic music, this is celtic beauty at its very best. This is not a new-age interpretation of the celtic sound, but rather an authentic production of true celtic songs.This is an excellent introduction to the traditional celtic genre, since it offers many different musicians and singers. Listeners who are new to the genre will find it very useful in helping to decide which artists to pursue to find the brand of celtic music they like best.This disc, however, only presents one side of the traditional celtic coin. The music here is very soft and melodic. For an equally great introduction to the more upbeat and energetic side of traditional celtic music, check out "The Celts Rise Again", which is another incredible collection of the greatest celtic artists of the day."
Important Celtic compilation

"Most Celtic compilations usually have 4-5 really good songs mixed in with a bunch of crap. Do the editors think that they can fool us folk fans into believing that just because something has a violin, or a harp, or ethereal vocals, or bagpipes, that it's "good" Celtic music? That's like saying any song with a guitar is good rock. Well, at least according to my personal taste , most if not ALL songs on this CD are good and fit well together. They range from fiddle and drum jig, to slow and melancholy fiddle solo, to a cappella duet, to harp, to drums and other instruments, all mixed in with very crisp, Gaelic vocals. If you're a Celtic music fan, this NEEDS to be a part of your collection!"
