Overview

Pure and simple this is new age Celtic-flavored pablum. There is little compelling here except for the near-virtuoso violin playing of Fionnula Sherry. There are some vocals placed in here, all of them near a whisper and evoking breathlessly the magic just beyond the night sky, the glen, the next kiss or some such.
