Format: Audio CD
I have listened to several of her albums and this is by far the most moving and original of all her works. I mean original for her, the sound is different, it really takes you out into the desert or the middle of a big market place.

This cd set is a must for any fan of Loreenas' music. The double cd is both enchanting and relaxing taking you to another place in time each time you listen to it. I love that one of the cds comes from live recording from her 2009 tour and the other studio recordings.

I liked it. But if you have previous albums, think about it twice because you're already having all the songs. But if you want to have ONE album, so then get it. Nothing new, if you bought something 2 years ago.

Format: Audio CD
I gave 5 stars b/c Loreena McKennitt is a 5 star artist. I love all her music. What I didn't realize tho is that this is a compilation of songs from her previous albums plus some live performances, so 1 star for the CD. There's no new music here. It was my fault for not noticing before buying. If you already have all her CDs, this would be a waste of money.

I wish I had been there in person to experience the person, the music, the atmosphere and the places visited on the tour.
