I picked this up when it was being offered for free and it has quickly become one of my favorites, particularly during those times when I need to relax or when I need to focus on something else but want something pleasant in the background. The songs on this album are all instrumental, ranging from lively dance tunes to songs in a lilting traditional style to tuneful ballads. The instruments used are acoustic: dulcimer, guitar, violin, flute, recorder, harp, tambourine, piano, whistle, and one or two I couldn't put a name to. Most of the songs are done in a traditional style but occasionally, something will creep in that's more akin to the fusion that I've heard in Mannheim Steamroller arrangements. The one common thread is that these are all lovely, well-played songs, and they are well worth your attention.

This sampler album has all kinds of Celtic-inspired and traditional music. Since it is a sampler, it has a variety of styles of music, not just one thing. So you get the New Age sound of David Arkenstone, who is a popular artist (he did the music for the World of Warcraft game among other computer games.) But there's also the traditional sounds of mixes such as "The Priest's Leap / The Priest And His Boots / The Priest With The Collar" and "Danny Boy". There's guitar and synthesizer, but also the more traditional harp, flute, drum and the pipes.

Cynthia Wyatt's Apples In Winter / The Monaghan Jig is played on Celtic harp (by Wyatt) and hammered dulcimer. As usual with a sampler, I find one or two artists I want to hear more of. If you like harp music, Wyatt has an album Celtic Harp Traditions with more of the traditional songs played with harp, dulcimer, pipes and flute. I listened to the samples and decided it was worth having on its own.

In a way, some of the songs don't mix with others without jarring you a bit--so if you want nothing but relaxation music, you could select about half the songs on there and arrange them on your MP3 just for zoning out, massage or falling asleep and have another set of more traditional sounds for the times when you want that Irish folk sound.

Either way, this is a great sampler to find some Celtic-inspired music.

I might have never picked up on these Celtic collections if not for the free samplers that Amazon offers but I have now become a fan and often look for them while searching Amazon for new music. They are traditional sounding and some tracks are almost meditative. Nice for background music for unwinding around the house.

A relaxing collection of traditional acoustic tunes to savor for St. Patrick's day. Peaceful background music with a Celtic flavor.

Saved an afternoon of relaxing and just listened to this album. Makes me want to travel to Ireland...now that my imagination has been transported by the musical compositions. Lovely find, indeed.

Thank you so much, Amazon and Green Hill Productions. These albums--including this reissue--
are always the best. Waiting for more from Beegie Adair and her lyrical renditions..

Misty Morning sounded like a festive song. The flute and guitar makes Si Bheag, Si Mhor like a song made for the ending credits of a movie. Part of The Priest's Leap / The Priest And His Boots / The Priest With The Collar sounds like it should be on a videogame, but the other part sounds like something that should be played at a party. The Girl From Donegal sounds like it should be played at a funeral. Apples In Winter / The Monaghan Jig (Medley) also sounds like an ending credits song. Margaret Brown's Favorite / The Muckin' O'Geordies Byre / Lango Lee (Medley) sounds to me it would fit an RPG game. Nearly a minute and a half of Beyond The Ruins sounded like Linkin Park. The latter part sounded like opening theme song. Water Horses / At The Cliffs Of Moher (Medley) seems to have acoustics to it, while the other part sounds like something that would play during a cross-examination. Myst On The Glen might have sounded like a boss fight, but part of it made me sleepy. Celtic Garden deserves to be in a sad part of a movie. Inisheer sounds someone going through a sad/bad time. Song Of The Silkie sounds like it should be on a dancing rhythm game. Orchestral Set #2: Derry Air (Danny Boy) / Slainte Na nGhaodhal sounded like a happy ending. Give Me Your Hand also sounded like a happy ending song. My Wild Irish Rose sounded like party song.

Professional production quality. Great selection of songs. They all work together as a goot set and sample of Celtic music.

I alternated my play list with Mumfords and sons songs. This was a really good mix. celtic are more musical and Mumfords are more vocals.
