ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
We are offering Nights from the Alhambra in two distinct packages. You will notice a choice of CD and DVD digipaks. Both packaging formats include identical content. This includes the DVD video and companion audio on two CDs.

Nights from the Alhambra is an enchanting musical performance, set beneath the stars in the breathtaking Moorish heart of medieval Spain. Captured live in September 2006, singer/composer Loreena McKennitt – in her first in-concert television special - leads viewers through the multi-textured landscapes of her catalogue, from traditional Celtic ballads to literary narratives and highlights from her most recent recording, An Ancient Muse.

From August 2007, Nights from the Alhambra will be available in stores worldwide as a deluxe three-disc set comprising a 139-minute DVD and two companion CDs with a combined running time of 94 minutes. Both the DVD and the audio-only CDs present performances of 18 of Loreena’s best-loved songs, including “The Mummers’ Dance”, “Caravanserai”, “The Mystic’s Dream” and “The Lady Of Shalott”, performed by Loreena and a host of musical colleagues.

The live concert performances captured in Nights from the Alhambra were first seen in the TV special of the same name in PBS’s “Great Performances” series. This programme began airing in the United States in March 2007.

In the spring of 2007, a version of the DVD/CD set Nights from the Alhambra was sold exclusively during Loreena McKennitt’s European and North American tours. This “tour exclusive” version of Nights from the Alhambra featured different artwork on the outer packaging, but it included the same content as the later commercial release.

Nights From The Alhambra CD & DVD
Oh, where to start? Three years ago I took a belly dance class taught by an Egyptian woman who used Marco Polo as our warm up piece. The soft chiming of the coined hip scarves along with the drum beat and hypnotic melody cast a spell on me then that seemed to reactivate some ancient muse of my own. Last year I saw her in concert and the spell sunk in a little deeper. For Christmas I got this set and treasure it like a bottle of fine wine,and a box of dark chocolate. Actually the three go together very well!
The Mummer\'s Dance is one of my favorites to start a workout, with it\'s brisk beat and Loreena\'s compelling voice. I picture trying to run along side a caravan trekking across the dessert. Dante\'s prayer, a passionate plea of remembrance, gets me every time - as a call from those who have passed before me. Haunting, soothing, deeply introspective and inspiring.
Loreena\'s conviction and emotion are evident and true, both live and through her recordings.

Nights from the Alhambra is an excellent album. I listen to it all the time. Beautiful, flowing and enchanting melodies which lift and inspire. Well done.
