California's David Arkenstone mixes cinematic and rock elements into his new age sonic tapestries, many of which have a distinct Celtic feel and edge, as does this set, which pays tribute to the Celtic-tinged music of Sarah Brightman, Enya, and Secret Garden. Fans of Arkenstone's earlier releases -- Celtic Sanctuary (2007), Spirit of Ireland (2007), Be Thou My Vision (2008), Celtic Romance (2008), and Celtic Chillout (2010) -- will undoubtedly be pleased with this outing as well. ~ Steve Leggett
