Avalon: A Celtic Legend

( 1 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Zac Johnson
This offering from elusive Celtic new age artist Enaid seems to be the work of David and Diane Arkenstone, the prolific contemporary instrumental duo. Their fingerprints are all over Avalon: A Celtic Legend: lush soundscapes, enjoyable melodies, and a certain cinematic sweep, but as is the case with many of their releases there is little to actually hold the listener's attention. That being said, the album is a perfectly fine collection of wispy, vaguely Celtic new age tunes, ideal for background music on a cold and rainy fall day.

    Very appealing and inspiring!

    Melodies and instrumentations influenced by the traditional music of the British Isles are rendered with a modern sensibility that is part New Age, part epic soundtrack. These lush, engaging compositions by Diane and David Arkenstone combine acoustic and electronic instruments, as well as occasional vocalise and whispered texts by Diane (whose name spelled backwards creates the pseudonym ¿Enaid¿). This recording could easily be a companion work to the Arkenstones¿ ¿Music Inspired by Middle Earth¿; it is equally appealing, telling a different story, but with similar textures and techniques. I find both recordings to be quite evocative, and if they were old vinyl LPs, I¿d have worn the grooves out by now. If you aren¿t familiar with David and Diane Arkenstones¿ work, start with these two CDs, and if you¿re already a fan, you¿re sure to love these top-notch additions to the repertoire! David¿s earlier release, ¿The Celtic Book of Days¿, also has British Isles theme and is quite enjoyable. Other similarly evocative ¿soundtracks¿ to historical and fantasy legends include Mychael and Jeff Danna¿s ¿A Celtic Tale: The Legend of Deirdre¿ and ¿A Celtic Romance: The Legend of Liadain and Curithir¿, as well as Jeff Johnson and Brian Dunning¿s ¿Byzantium: The Book of Kells and St. Aidan¿s Journey¿, and ¿Music of Celtic Legends: The Bard and the Warrior¿. Buy them all and put them on a multi-CD mixer for hours of compelling journeys through time and mood!
