The original in the internationally popular Hearts of Space series, Celtic Twilight is a collection of 14 pieces: 8 from the label’s artist stable of recordings–including a quartet of compositions from HOS stalwart Bill Douglas–and 6 from other carefully selected artists. An instrumental recording, save for the standout “Ancient Pines” from singer-instrumentalist Loreena McKennitt 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 the 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
