A Mediterranean Odyssey : Limited Edition, commemorative two-disc set to be released

Inspired by Loreena’s fascination with the Celts in the broader Mediterranean region, this special Limited Edition package consists of two CDs in a richly designed slip case.

The first CD, From Istanbul to Athens, consists of ten new live recordings made during Loreena’s 2009 Mediterranean Tour, including songs that have never before been recorded in concert. It will also include a twenty-four-page, lavishly illustrated booklet featuring on-location photographs captured during the 2009 Tour.

The second CD, The Olive and the Cedar, has a Mediterranean theme curated by Loreena herself. It contains previously released studio recordings created between the years of 1994 and 2006.

Exact release dates for the various territories will be announced shortly. Be sure to check back to the QR web site or join the QR Community to be informed of the release schedule and pre-order opportunities.

Ciao Betty, allora bentornata, giusto in tempo per l'annuncio dei nuovi cd. Ho messo la faccetta arrabbiata perché spero che in Italia il cofanetto non esca in ritardo come sempre...
Sono troppo contenta di questa nuova uscita!

Hi Betty, welcome, right in time for this announcement. I put the 'mad smiley' as I fear the CD will be out late as always... So glad of this new release!
Hi Angie. There will be an iTunes release and I am almost certain you will be able to order a la carte. The release date in The United States will be October 20th.

Hi Gianni Smiler

Someone had mentioned in another area of the board that there was a new recording available for pre-order at Amazon and Barnes & Noble. I ordered from Barnes & Noble. I don't know if it is the same version that will be offered here, last year for AMWND there was one version you could only order through QR. If there is more than one version I will of course have to have them all Big Grin

Thanks Ramona for answering me Smiler
I think i'll wait for the original version.
I am very happy for the issue of the " A mediterranean Odissey", is a magical gift.
I wanted to know if it will be possible the pre-order and purchase on the site "Quinlan Road", because i am italian and I would want to take it from here!
Thanks still for an other wonderful dream...
Dear all,
I have just searched Loreena's music in I-tunes and... wow! Now I'm just downloading the songs!!!
It's really a gift to be able to listen to the song Full circle live (I've never heard it live and it's one of my favourites!) and another live version of Gates of Istanbul (amazing, authentic and beautiful). I think the selection of songs, the studio and the live ones, is really great.
Thank you so much for these moments of happiness.
Love,

MANEL
At first glance th second cd seems redundant but only if seen through the perspective of the single songs, which I'm sure most of us already own. But if we consider it as part of the full package, I think it would make a nice listen together with the live cd. I'm tempted to pre-order today, especially since the official store is amazing in their service, kindness and low prices also for internationl buyers. If you have not tried to purchase from them, I can highly highly recommend it!

But if I buy the cd now, maybe I'll miss some nifty holiday packages in December? What to do?
I've just received A mediterranean Odissey!Fantastic!Thanks Loreena for this wonderful gift!Your voice is as always so powerful,moving,clear...the live cd is recommendable!Its versions of Tango to evora,The dark night of the soul,full circle,santiago are if possible more touching and stronger than ever.And the booklet is so interesting and refined!Thanks for giving me the chance to be part of your latest tour,even though i didn't have the occasion to attend the italian gig!
God bless you,

Gianni.
I ordered my Mediterranean Odyssey copy on Oct 19th from Amazon.com along with one other item (so as to get 'free shipping') and it arrived TODAY! They only mailed it the 22nd--I had no idea it was in my mailbox until I checked the Amazon site 1/2 hour ago under 'My Orders' box--surprise!

Istanbul to Athens it playing just now--it is so beautiful! It's wonderful to hear these slightly different 'versions' of the songs--and happily one of my VERY favs ever is on here--Full Circle! I can hardly wait to get to that one!

This set is a real godsend for those of us who had no way to get to one of the Mediterranean concerts. The other CD, The Olive and the Cedar, is a totally 'different' lineup of studio songs specially chosen, and the little booklet is truly gorgeous! Wish some bigger photos or posters might become available of a few of them...

Loreena, thank you so much for these 'goodies'! Even though I have all the songs on your other discs, it's wonderful to hear so many of them done again 'live', and some for the first time! You ALWAYS sound great, and your voice just seems to get more beautiful with each passing year--is such a thing even possible? Smiler

Oh BTW--is this the exact same set being offered through Quinlan Road/Maple Music? I thought it was, but am wondering for sure!
Dear all,

I ordered the limited edition and finally arrives! The design is excellent and beautiful Smiler

The olive and the cedar is just great! New edits for each song (except tango to evora, the mystic's dream, sacred shabbat and the mummers' dance)

And from Istanbul to Athens...OMG! Just beautiful concert, my favorite is Caravanserai and Beneath A Phrygian Sky...A few months ago I was wondered how would sound Beneath a phrygian sky in live..and, is just amazing!

I love the picture where Loreena is buying in a market in Lebanon. The booklet is beautiful..
QR, could you make a DVD like A Moveable Musical Feast but about the Mediterranean Tour? Loreena thanks for this gift!
