AllMusic Review by

This collection of relaxation music from the Lifescapes label features 15 tracks of quiet Celtic music played in a comforting new age style. The material is largely culled from traditional songs and melodies and features live instruments like harp, guitar, flute, and uilleann pipes played over mellow synthesizer backgrounds. Vocals are featured occasionally, but are often wordless or in Gaelic and do not distract from the calming atmosphere. Intended for relaxation and meditation, the tracks tend to be longer, generally ranging from four to eight minutes each. For a Celtic-themed new age album, the arrangements are surprisingly tasteful and the instruments are well recorded, providing a tranquil and pleasantly pastoral background.
