Re: Need Help In Choosing A Loreena Song For Thanksgiving

You can try Caravanserai, Dante's Prayer, Penelope's Song, Mummer's Dance, or Neverending Road. I don't know about you, but I always felt these songs give the "feeling" on family holidays or brings in the mood. Hope it helps!

All of her songs are good of course, but for a mass, I would say Beneath A Phrygian Sky, or Dante`s Prayer. They are both about having faith in dark times of life, beautifully written as well as inspirational. Good luck!!!

Wow thank you so much!! I do like Never Ending Road and Dante's Prayer is certainly a beautiful chant. I would be accompanied by either piano or organ. So these two are perfect for a thanksgiving mass. Thank you so much Ryan, and Barnacles62

Need Help In Choosing A Loreena Song For Thanksgiving

Hi Everyone,   I was wondering if you all could help me.  What song would you choose for a Thanksgiving Mass?  I'm a cantor at my church of Saint Pius X and I would love to choose one of Loreena McKennitt's songs to sing and share with...

It's A Long Story, But Loreena McKennitt and Band Were Awesome

Hi Everyone,   After talking about this concert with friends, I still had to do something to express the feeling I had.  I hope you can indulge me. A night of music but a night of storytelling, and dramatic readings.  As I write this,...

The song 'Pagan Trees'

Taliesin ·
Earlier this year, just before I attended one of Loreena's concerts in Italy, I had come across an old recording of her song, supposedly called 'Pagan Trees' ( https://youtu.be/-G5VxlOyUyo ). I came to love it instantly. I own every album of Loreena's and have listened to all of her songs multiple times throughout the years but this one gets me like few other could. Never before have I felt such strong nostalgia whilst listening to a song. A nostalgia rooted far in the past. Far beyond the...

Hi Taliesin Thanks for reminding that very rare Loreena's recording! I have 3 versions of this song (for one you put the link above) - if you want other versions please give me your email. Unfortunatly, the quality is not the best. Hope Loreena put "Ballad of the Foxhunter" on her new recording as this song is also beatiful and it needs to finally find its place on an offical album! Regarding lyrics, well I have never found any BUT many years ago (10 probably) I did some transcription from...

Hello, RafaƂ ( TOKOFEROL )! You have no idea how happy you just made me. Magic happens when Loreena puts Yeats's words to music and so is the case with Ballad of the Foxhunter and I am sure it will appear on her next album. The song is very charming. As for the recordings of Pagan Trees , please send any you have to my address: meloryno@gmail.com . Being a non-native English speaker, I've also failed to completely transcribe the lyrics, if you want, send them too. Have a pleasant day!

I too, love this song, as all other Loreena songs. When it comes down to it, she could record the Barney theme song and I'd fall in love with it! I'm smitten and enticed with her voice and style of singing that I doubt there would be a song I didn't like coming from her. There's only 1 other band I can say that about, alas, they've broken up some time ago. Happy Eclectic Celticing!
