2012 release from the Canadian Folk/New Age/Pop chanteuse. In March 2011 an invited audience of 300 eager music devotees entered the radio studios of SWR1 in Mainz, Germany to participate in a unique concert experience by multi platinum recording artist Loreena McKennitt. Accompanied only by her long standing musical companions, Brian Hughes (guitars) and Caroline Lavelle (cello), over the course of an hour they performed songs from Loreena's then newly released recording The Wind That Shakes The Barley alongside a selection of favorites drawn from across her catalog of nine studio albums, including fan favorites 'The Lady of Shalott', 'Bonny Portmore' and 'The Bonny Swans'.
Nothing new here. Just that thrilling voice superbly backed and recorded with shattering clarity. This group of favourites from Loreena's repertoire have never sounded better. Exquisite beauty. Purest Rhinegold.
Loreena McKennitt has done it again and produced a wonderful celtic selection of music which is delectable and leaving you wanting more. Highly recommend this CD to all people who enjoy celtic ballads.
