All Music Guide - Ross Boissoneau
There's an ever-increasing amount of Celtic material available, ranging from tunes straight from the pubs of Dublin to vaguely Irish-sounding new age material. This is one of the more otherworldly combinations, a musical stew combining authentic Celtic instrumentation alongside modern instruments, all banded together in a set of easily accessible instrumentals. There's even a cover of Sting's pop hit "Fields of Gold." But don't be fooled -- just because the music is accessible doesn't mean it is pabulum. This is engaging, listenable music that conveys a Celtic feel as much as discs by Clannad, the Bothy Band, or more traditional Irish groups. The approach taken here ...

The approach taken here just reflects the album's late-'90s date of release, with the alluring photos of harpist Lynne and even her e-mail address serving as marketing tools as much as the music.

    Luscious, multi-instrumental diversions!

    Harpist Lisa Lynne, formerly known as Lisa Lynne Franco, is featured in cheerful arrangements crafted by herself and fellow instrumentalists George Tortorelli and David Arkenstone. These contemporary compositions, truly an ensemble effort, borrow from traditional motifs and add modern ambience and edge. Instrumentation used includes mandolin, dulcimer, guitars, cittern, arch lute, violin, cello, gamba, bass, electronic keyboards, percussion, and the distinctive, fluid flute and whistle-playing of George Tortorelli. When I first heard this recording, I was in the midst of reading a fantasy story by Mercedes Lackey entitled ¿The Eagle and the Nightingales¿, published as part of the trilogy compilation ¿The Free Bards¿. It occurred to me, as I looked at the cover painting by Nora Koerber for ¿Daughters of the Celtic Moon¿ and the photographs of Lisa dressed in period garb, that there was some similarity to Lackey¿s descriptions of her harp-toting bardic heroine ¿Nightingale¿. Then I noticed that the fourth track on this album is actually entitled ¿Nightingale¿, and later realized that Lackey and Lynn had both collaborated with David Arkenstone on his album ¿The Celtic Book of Days¿. A case of mutual inspiration? Or mere coincidence in a small world? Regardless, I find Lynne¿s music quite complimentary to the spirit of Lackey¿s brave, gentle and loving character. If you like this CD, check out Lynne¿s extensive discography. A visit to her website will reveal her complete history of releases, with wonderfully long clips to listen to and without any confusion caused by name changes.
