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
mummers dance | Reviewer: Jamey Goff
    ------ About the song The Mummers' Dance performed by Loreena McKennitt

This music is awesome. I feel as if I literally go to another plane when I listen to pieces of music that have depth like this one. It definitely changes my outlook and consciousness when I listen to it. Simply amazing.

I also love the wolves in the video, I am a caring member and supporter of "Defenders of wildlife".
I adopted a wolf pup I got to name him "Chinook" at 2 months old, with a certificate of adoption. Wolves need our support and protection before they become extinct. Which I pray God will not let that happen to such a beautiful majestic creature. I am part Lakota Indian so I feel a special connection to them. thank you Lorrena for this beautiful song!

    ------ About the song The Mystic's Dream performed by Loreena McKennitt

Like another person here, I first heard this song in the movie Mists of Avalon. I immediately perked up and sat almost entranced until the end of the song. I didn't even wait until the end of the movie to look it up on the internet. I do like other songs by Loreena but this song truly touches me and makes me feel like I'm part of something bigger and ancient. I cannot say that for any other song I've ever heard.

    ------ About the song Skellig performed by Loreena McKennitt

The monk, a scribe, isolated from humanity nevertheless spends his time scribing the deeds of humanity[its history], and the Words of God, its only hope. His time on earth, contemplating the "mysteries" of humanity and the words of God was long and weary, mixed with tears and wrath from "within a rocky cell"...In this sense, the monk represents humanity, for we, like him, are ourselves isolated and weary, prisoners of our own making, contemplating our own deeds on earth...and like him, facing the Words of God. As time runs out he passes on all he has learned, for he MUST, and faithfully hands over to posterity the books preserving both humanities deeds and the Words of God. And as the world grows dark he asks John to set a LIGHT. A light? Is this a desire?...A longing of his?...As his time draws near he clearly seeks to come out of the darkness into the light...Is it odd John lights the candle in his life, for John is one of the gospels of light he has surely scribed. And finally, as the sands of time run out, he hears the bells,...bells calling,....calling ALL...all who hear them...to God. His was a life of deep meditation, long contemplating the mysteries of life...having found the answers, deeming them important, he passed them on faithfully and in the end, himself found comfort in the light he preached. His final sermon. It is interesting. In the beginning of his journey his books were "all to me"...in the end it was the light they shed that mattered,...As for the books? Well he must leave them behind.


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.
