ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Loreena celebrates the season with a new CD that blends the five songs from A Winter Garden (1995) with eight new songs inspired by seasonal favourites.

The seasonal collection features an array of Loreena\'s wide musical influences, ranging from Celtic to classical to Middle Eastern. Her eclecticism shines through in the mysticism of “The Holly and the Ivy,” the exotic Eastern arrangements of “God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen,” the Latin-sung “Emmanuel” and the North French/African rendering of “Noël Nouvelet!,” sung in Old French.

Wonderfully luminescent
Loreena McKennitt’s 20+ years and dozens of awards and honors shine through in this wonderfully evocative mix of world, Celtic, New Age, and traditional folk music, celebrating the Christmas season. You’ll love the original, fascinating interpretations of classic carols and eight new songs inspired by the season. McKennitt’s tasty blend of eastern rhythms on some songs and Renaissance instruments on others evokes not just the holiday season, but several hundred years of rich musical tradition from around the world. The result is an expressive, moving celebration and a poignant reflection on the mystery of what Christmas means.
