After coming to California from rural Chicago at age 10, David immersed himself in all the music he could find. Spending high school and college in various bands and performance groups, he then criss-crossed the country several times playing popular music. He finally settled down to concentrate on developing his own sound, and when computers and instruments could finally communicate to each ... Read more in Amazon's David Arkenstone Store

I was a little disturbed when I read Dirty Linen's review of this CD. Perhaps it was not understood that Arkenstone lends his talents (ehem, MIGHTY talents) to many, many different forms of music from many cultures. It is my opinion that this CD was not meant to be folk music - it is essentially Celtic-a-la-Arkenstone. Same goes for his Native American CD 'Spirit Wind' and others. Plain and simple, this CD is wonderful and magical.

As a long-term fan of David's, I have stayed with him as he explored different directions of his craft. While some critics are correct in pointing out Celtic Book of Days is not "true" Celtic music, this is nonetheless a fine album in it's own right. It's not meant to be a study of traditional Celtic musicology, rather a picturesque romp that happens to have a Celtic flavor to it. If you like David's other works, I'm sure you'll like this as well. I received this album for Christmas 1999 and played it to death for the first few days. To this day it is still one of my comfortable favorites. As an aspiring writer, I credit the repeated listening to this album with helping me create a story about olden times in Britannia when life was simpler and filled with adventure, wonder and, most of all, MAGIC!

Let this album so inspire you as well.

The cover of the CD says it all. This 1998 release finds the perfect balance between the acoustic and electric worlds. Although the songs are rooted in traditional Irish, and Folk music, it leaves room for many other areas. The string and vocal arrangements are stellar! The vocal melodies and harmonies transport the listener to another place and time. This CD has a very magical affect on the listener. Never monotonous, amd solid from start to finish. Fans of David's other moody, synth heavy releases will be pleseantly suprised by this one. Although much different than his previous efforts, it will compliment your collection. Definetly one of his best works!

I got this album for myself and was enchanted with it, so enchanted in fact that I played it in my store. Well after about a week I had to start stocking it, because so many people wanted to buy it. This is a relaxing collection of Celtic and early British Isles music. The album is well composed, and has definite direction. This is a great stress lowerer in the store and at home, and I would recommend this album to anyone.

I came across this two years ago and had to have it. From first track to last it has not a weak moment at all. The opening drums and fiddle of Equous Fair hooked me from note one. I would call this a musical journey through Celtic myth and a beautiful one at that. The mix of traditional Celtic instruments with electronics results in a beautiful epic work that I could easily see as film music. This paints lush images in your mind of the coast of Eire and it's people experiencing everything from ecstasy to tragedy and back. It will break your heart with one piece, lift and mend it the next, and set it afire with joyful, tender, yearning passion. Don't miss it!

This is one of the most consistently excellent album from Arkenstone--if you remember to skip tracks 4, 5, and 10, the ones that feature his voice. My favorites are Equos Fair, bright and happy but interrupted by a beautiful flute duet; The Festival, an interesting and fast jig; Behind Walls of Stone, a dark march broken by a Latin chant; and The Quest of Culhwch, a cinematic score for medieval battle (at least, it should be). The use of bagpipes could have been better, though. Also, if you're just looking for Celtic music, this isn't the best choice. This is Arkenstone with a Celtic flavor, and belongs in an Arkenstone collection, not a Celtic one.

I bought this CD a few years ago, and it was my first venture into the sounds of David Arkenstone. I found the CD's appearance and title to be enchanting, and thus had quite high expectations. What I actually found upon listening was mostly a wide variety of Celtic inspired new age songs along with a few songs that seemed to borrow more from 15th century madrigals than from a traditionally Celtic sound. Upon my first listen I was immediately captivated by the Celtic inspired tunes - they seemed to capture the full spectrum of emotions: celebration, contentment in nature, battle-like intensity, hopefulness, triumph, introspection, and even a sense of mournfulness on the beginning of "Stormcry" and throughout the "Braveheart"-like "Cailleach's Whisper". Although I was initially turned off by the madrigal -like pieces, I have warmed up to them substantially following repeated listenings. I now feel that they are a valuable addition to the album, and that during their appeareances throughout the album one experiences an almost cathedralesque sense of rapture. "The Celtic Book of Days" is a wonderfully constructed and composed album that pays tribute to the rich Celtic heritage from which it draws its inspiration. I can honestly say that my high expectations for this album were met and exceeded. If you have any interest in Celtic music whatsoever, or even if you just feel you love good music from any genre, I highly recommend David Arkenstone's "The Celtic Book of Days," which ranks amongst his greatest CDs.
