Barnes & Noble - Carol Wright
Can we ever get enough Celtic music? Seems not, and a good thing it is, too, for this fifth compilation album from the Hearts o' Space is a winner. These tracks contain all the distinctive Celtic instruments -- uillean pipes, bodhran drum, harp, pennywhistle, and fiddle -- but they are lushly realized, not the raw jigs and reels you'd hear down at the pub. Ailein Duinn, known for her songs in "Riverdance," will melt your heart with the lovely "Méav" from "Rob Roy." Mychael and Jeff Danna offer four pieces from A CELTIC ROMANCE and A CELTIC TALE, all robustly orchestrated Celtic fantasy soundscapes that are cinematic in scale.

Mychael and Jeff Danna offer four pieces from A CELTIC ROMANCE and A CELTIC TALE, all robustly orchestrated Celtic fantasy soundscapes that are cinematic in scale. Joan Doan, master of the 20-string harp-guitar, casts a magical spell in tributes to St. Patrick and the blind harpist Turlough O'Carolan. Bill Douglas's choral works featuring the Ars Nova Singers evoke images of solid churches and peaceful pastures. Joanie Madden, the reigning queen of the Irish whistle, offers the melodic "Down by the Salley Gardens" and the heart-pounding dance bodhran player Jimmy Higges made popular in the film "Titanic." Jeff Johnson's "Jasconius," a frantic ambient dance piece with drum loops, is a bit jolting, but Johnson seals the album with his soulful and moving ballad "Navigatio," from PRAYERS OF ST. BRENDAN.
All Music Guide - Steve Huey
Celtic Twilight 5 continues the Hearts of Space label's popular compilation series, gathering lush, dramatic tracks of new age-styled Celtic music from the Danna Brothers, John Doan, Bill Douglas, Joanie Madden, Jeff Johnson, and Meav.
