Loreena McKennitt Lyrics


"If one begins with the big questions of 'Who am I?' and
'Why am I here?', the understanding of the roads back in
history seem as important as the ones forward, whether or
not it pertains to the individual or collective, to the
subject of love or the control of information."

In The Book Of Secrets, Loreena McKennitt's seventh release
and successor to the U.S. gold records The Visit and The
Mask And Mirror, the Canadian artist continues a process of
cultural excavation of the pan-Celtic heritage, serving as
a creative springboard and More...

Review about Loreena McKennitt songs
I think a word is wrong... | Reviewer: Trevor
    ------ About the song She Moved Through The Fair performed by Loreena McKennitt

I believe the word is supposed to be "kine" not "kind." Kine is an old word for cattle, especially female - for breeding or dairy purposes. It's a way to telling her lover, "my father will not begrudge the fact that you have no wealth in cows" - once a very formal & definable way of determining a young man's worth as a suitor.

who is John in this song? | Reviewer: pilgrim777
    ------ About the song Skellig performed by Loreena McKennitt

I know Loreena wrote this song in conjunction with her trip to Skellig Michael island, but when I was listening to it, I couldn't help by think of the apostle John exiled to the island of Patmos, where He wrote the book of revelation.. I don't think she was writing about the apostle John in this song, but the reference to John makes me wonder who was this John she was telling us about?

Dante's Prayer | Reviewer: Jay
    ------ About the song Dante's Prayer performed by Loreena McKennitt

This is a song that I was introduced to back in the early 2000's. At the time, and still: I was mourning the death of my Nana. The ocean, stars & love were always our connection. I cry everytime I hear this, but am also comforted in feeling like she's right there next to me. Thank you, Loreena for writing & singing a true gem amongst so much zircon in the music world. It is one that I will carry in my heart forever. <3

A Sad Song of True Love | Reviewer: Matthew J.
    ------ About the song Annachie Gordon performed by Loreena McKennitt

The soulful lament of Annachie Gordon by Loreena McKennitt brings a heartfelt longing to wander the Grampian Mountains in search of the resting place of these lovers...to stand upon a slope and read the words and hear the cry of Loreena.

review of bonnie portmore | Reviewer: elizabeth
    ------ About the song Bonny Portmore performed by Loreena McKennitt

regardless of the different arrangements i have heard her sing this song, she always pulls me so deep into the song and its emotions. her singing is so sentient and her arrangements always support this, such a rare quality when you think about it.

Revue of No Journey's end DVD and comparison to lyrics here | Reviewer: Kira
    ------ About the song Lady of Shalott performed by Loreena McKennitt

In McKennitt's DVD No Journey's end, she skips 80% of the words that are here.
I found it a little annoying and complicated to follow and sing since we skipped most of the sections.
I do not know if she had to paraphrase it for the DVD or what, Either way, I enjoy her music immensely and shall continue for years to come.

She brings us a look at it. | Reviewer: Glenn
    ------ About the song Bonny Portmore performed by Loreena McKennitt

From out of the mists of time
There lay a land once dreamt of in a lullaby,
Where God so blessed it, and shone his
Smoothest light upon it, where the fortunate
May glimpse but a moment of celestial harmony
Between the mountains and the moody sea.

Deep magical wisdom beyond times | Reviewer: Natascha
    ------ About the song The Mystic's Dream performed by Loreena McKennitt

When singing this song, I always find myself crying from a certain point. Strangely, this crying does not affect my singing, to the contrary, it brings out a melody from deep inside of me of which I did not even have an idea it might be hidden there. I am not a great singer - only do it for my own joy - but the voice that comes out of my mouth then is truly beautiful, magical. I am not even sure if it is my own one. I cannot fully tell what this masterpiece ist, but I could imagine that it connects us to a very old form of female goddess energy, which is now about to come back to earth in full power. And this is done through (amongst others)the opening of our hearts while feeling this song. And just for the records: there is of course a female goddess in each soul having chosen a male body for their present incarnation as well, you know that, don't you :-)
