Overview

New age duo Secret Garden (Irish violinist Fionnuala Sherry and Norwegian keyboardist Rolf Lovland) have cultivated a devoted group of fans with their top-selling albums of mood music: Songs from a Secret Garden (1996), White Stones (1997), and the millennial Dawn of a New Century. Now that the duo's success is an open secret, it's time for a "best of" album. Enter Dreamcatcher, a cream-of-the-crop compilation of 19 tracks handpicked from Secret Garden's bountiful yield. The wistful "Nocturne" -- assisted by vocalist Gunnhild Tvinnereim -- opens the album, while lyricist Nikki Matheson provides the title track's restful lullaby. Celtic rhythms and a soundtrack sensibility inhabit "Dawn of a New Century," followed by the sentimental summing-up "Last Present," a newly recorded bonus track. Derek Bell of the Chieftains, the Celtic choral group Anuna, and even the Irish National Symphony Orchestra all play a part, too. Dreamcatcher affirms what Secret Garden's fans already know: The duo's mélange of folk-inspired melodies, sweet harmonies, and languid tempos is set to soothe the soul.
