Product Description

Product Description

Celtic Twilight ~ Vol. 1-Celtic Twilight

Amazon.co.uk

The original in the internationally popular Hearts of Space series, Celtic Twilight is a collection of 14 pieces: eight from the label's artist stable of recordings--including a quartet of compositions from HOS stalwart Bill Douglas--and six from other carefully selected artists. An instrumental recording, save for the standout "Ancient Pines" from singer-instrumentalist Loreena McKennitt's third self-released album and the Bill Douglas closer featuring soprano Jane Grimes, Celtic Twilight combines traditional Celtic whistles, acoustic strings, and bagpipes with contemporary keyboards. Gentle, lilting and romantic, these songs are the music of ocean and rolling green hills, of that magical pink sky time of evening when the lines between myth and reality blur in a most pleasing fashion. --Paige La Grone

Virtually an instrumental album which borders on New Age its only vocals by Loreena McKennit and Jane Grimes.Probably the soundtrack to Heaven
Celtic Twilight was the name of a book of poetry by W B Yeats

A long time ago, I purchased Celtic Twilight: Lullabies (third disc in the series) from a quaint shop in the country. Over the years, I've grown to adore every part of it, the disc being perfect to listen to as the wife and I wind down in readiness to sleep. Recently, I thought it would be a good idea to delve further in to the series, so logically I started with the original first album, Celtic Twilight. Sadly, I now regret this purchase because it's nothing like Lullabies. Every track, bar two, on Celtic Twilight are instrumental, most of them rather mediocre in my view; Lullabies is composed of tracks sung hauntingly by various female singers - they're all absolutely gorgeous. So now, rather than think about buying the entire series, I only intend getting one other...Celtic Twilight 7, which I think might have some of the quality of Lullabies. There are certainly better chill out celtic albums about than Celtic Twilight...I do wonder how this album managed to spawn six others!

HASH(0x8ef5b4e0) out of 5 stars Good, but Others in Celtic Genre more Worthy 14 July 2003
By shoutgrace - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
'Celtic Twilight' (title given by William Butler Yeats for an 1893 book of stories of his Irish homeland) is a compliation of selected from the Heart of Space catalog. I'm a long-time listener of Celtic music and I'm not knocking HOS but, other albums in this genre are more worthy. This album is a mixture of electronic synths harmonizing with fiddle, bagpipe and tin whistle. They're beautiful to hear them and are very relaxing. The four music pieces of Bill Douglas are quite nice and combines the elements of Celtic, African, Indian, jazz and classical. The only piece that come any close to Celtic is the Joanie Madden (Cherish the Ladies) piece, "Women of Ireland" and heard on John Boswell's piece "Skye Boat Song" (from the traditional Scottish) and Alasdair Fraser's piece playing the fiddle on "Lassie with the Golden Hair" (traditional Scottish).

May I suggest a few good Celtic albums I find that are satisfying in their style and pure form-Joanie Madden's 'Song of the Irish Whistle,' Séamus Ennis 'Best of Irish Piping,' 'Castles of Gold,' 'A Thistle & Shamrock Christmas Ceilidh,' and 'Gaelic Voices.' Hope that some of these will help in your Celtic music selection. In my experience most compliation albums aren't all that great. Most great songs are missed that should have been on the album. Also be careful of imitations and read those customer reviews if an album is genuine or not. Good Luck!

HASH(0x8ef5b534) out of 5 stars Most valuable CD I own. 18 May 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Celtic Twilight was my first, but not my last, CD of Celtic music. This CD has the ability to calm me when I'm stressed and energize me when I'm down, and often does both. Containing my favorite pieces of music, it always makes my day better. Highly recommended for those new to this type music and those who are not.

HASH(0x916aa594) out of 5 stars Dreams of Green, Rolling Hills and Rocky Crags 4 Mar. 2006
By Captain Nojaa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I originally purchased this CD in a Discovery Channel store in the mid-90's that was playing it on their stereo system. What I heard was very awe-inspiring, and even today the music still moves me in that same manner. However, Celtic music is more than music played on traditional Irish instruments; indeed, that music is defined by the moods the music creates rather than just the instruments utilized.

This recording takes me on a journey to green, rolling hills and rocky crags while my mind is bathed in the musical waves exuded in the various selections. In some scenes, one soars high overhead those green hills and crags, whereas in others one may participate in a traditional Irish gig in "Diamond Dance," or experience the grim determination and gentleness of the "Women of Ireland."

The loneliness and sorrow of a lost love can be realized in Mychael Danna's "Deidre of the Sorrows," a theme, if you will, of the play of the same title by the late 19th-Century Irish playwright John M. Synge. "Sweet Rain" evokes visions of a soft, spring rain while walking through a country meadow.

Perhaps the most revealing music on this CD is John Boswell's "Skye Boat Song." In it, the traditions, beliefs, hopes and dreams of the Irish people are elegantly portrayed in a melody that is both haunting and ethereal.

"Sky 7" is undoubtedly the most moving piece of music in the program. It cements the moods portrayed in "Skye Boat Song" while evoking celestial feelings of wonderment and awe that we all share while contemplating our place in the Cosmos.

The CD concludes with Bill Douglas' "Deep Peace," a melody which could be thought of as a lullaby and serves as a peaceful ending to the program.

"Celtic Twilight" is an emotional, musical journey of the traditions Ireland has to offer. I recommend this CD to those who wish to musically explore Ireland, its people, and its traditions.

HASH(0x8ef5b60c) out of 5 stars Lovely CD! 16 Feb. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a lovely cd well-worth the couple of pounds it cost me to buy it. So many "celtic" cd's are around today, and many of them lack, shall I say...the real flavor of Ireland. However, this cd captures it. I love it!

HASH(0x8ef5b5a0) out of 5 stars beautiful for any occasion. 29 Oct. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
My husband and I had a celtic themed wedding where we used quite a few celtic selections for our entry music and processional. It was amazing! Everyone loved the change and it set the mood beautifully for our candlelight ceremony. I had the music selected the moment I heard the cd and never wanted to use anything else throughout the year and a half of planning!
