Album Notes and Credits
CELTIC CIRCLE is a two-disc set of Celtic and Celtic-influenced music culled both from old favorites and from a handful of new, promising talents. Big names such as Enya, Loreena McKennitt, and Sinead O'Connor appear alongside artists with lower profiles but strong fan-bases like Maire Brennan and Karen Matheson. In addition to traditional Celtic music, the collection expands the genre to include tracks from the scores of THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING ("The Fellowship" by Howard Shore) and THE MISTS OF AVALON ("The Mystic's Dream" by McKennitt). Each track seamlessly glides into the other, creating a listening experience that is rich in musical tradition. Compiled by the venerable Windham Hill label, each track was selected for its Celtic origin or spirit. Indicative of Celtic spirit, Bono's performance with Clannad on "In A Lifetime" is sure to cause chills, while The Chieftains' version of "Factory Girl" benefits from O'Connor's ethereal vocal. A select number of New Age artists are included, such as Vangelis, who contributes the soaring "12 O'Clock," and David Arkenstone, who performs his inspiring "The Dragon's Breath." The Irish choir Anuna beautifully delivers "She Moved Through the Fair," lending a sense of enchantment that complements the tone of the collection. CELTIC CIRCLE is a wonderful addition to any Celtic music library.
