20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection: The Best of Secret Gardenby Secret Garden
The Norwegian/Celtic duo of Fionnula Sherry and Rolf Lovland reside in the gray area between Enya and Yanni. Mystical, elegant, and highly over-produced, their brand of contemporary composition rarely invokes parody. While there is definitely an underlying river of new age pretension, the duo rely as much on choirs, folk instrumentation, and orchestral ambience as they do mythical keyboard patches, resulting in an intoxicating blend of Loreena McKennitt-style dramatics and Clannad-esque vocal arrangements. Hip-O's 20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection: The Best of Secret Garden collects the group's highlights, ranging from their impressive 1996 debut through 2001's Dreamcatcher.

I don't own this CD but the reason is that I have every other CD put out by Secret Garden and I already have these selections. I really enjoy them and will buy any Secret Garden CD with new selections. I listen to them to go to sleep at night. Very soothing and interesting music.
