New Age, Neo-Celtic, World Beat Music
There is really some excellent music in these categories of music, IMO. I lump it all into New Age, but it's much more than that. Are ther others that enjoy this hard to classify music? I especially like Loreena McKennitt's Neo-Celtic CDs. Her "Book of Secrets", and "Mask Behind the Mirror" are favorites, but she has no bad CDs. I also like "The Visit". Another great group is Enigma. All four of their CDs are excellent, and are very well recorded. One magazine reviewer said she didn't know whether their music was just "Schlock" or exciting/meaningful-- but no doubt, I like and recommend it all. Another favorite that I've never seen mentioned is "Walela", a CD by Rita Coolidge et al.-- soft drumming, a neo-native american sound, and sort of ethereal in character, also an excellent recording. I also put Enya and Clannad in this group. Mai're (pronounced Moira) Brennan is a lead singer for Clannad and is sister of Enya. Mai're Brennan also has several excellent CDs out under her own name-- Celtic and Neo-Celtic music; beautiful voice. I also have a 3 CD set called "Celtic Legacy" that is largely Neo-Celtic. Then there's "Deep Forest" etc. Are there any other Audiogon members who like and can recommend some CDs with this (these) kind of music. Thanks. Craig.
