AllMusic Review by

This four-disc set from Universal collects 80 "haunting and evocative melodies" from nobody in particular. Divided into four sections ("Celtic Traditions," "Celtic Spirit," "Celtic Rhythm" and "Celtic Moods"), the mood is predominantly "new agey," with plenty of lush keyboards and angelic reverb, but there are some fine, harp-led folk melodies and traditional bits for the Celtic purist. Fans of Enya, Clannad, Lindisfarne and Mary Black will find a few things to hiking here, but this is about as generic as it gets.
