Mine too! I love them both. But if/when you get Raglan Road, you may add that one to your favourites. I think, though I've only had AAM for a few days, that my favourite song on it is Raglan Road. It's really heartaching. The lyrics are wonderful. Does anyone know where I can get the offical lyrics?
The English Ladye And The Knight is oh so beautiful. I love the boys choir. It adds a great atmosphere. I have always loved boys choirs, ever since I can remember. Cool


I love boychoirs and listen a lot to them tooSmiler My favourite boychoirs are Libera and Boys Air Choir, both from England.

if you search by google, you may find many links to the lyrics who has been sung by Joan Osborne, Sinead O'Conner and many others. But the writer of the poem is Patrick Kavanagh. By the way, here's one on many links : http://www.netsoc.ucd.ie/~justy/raglan.html

Good luck in your search.
Take care and read you soon.

I have to say that Beneath a Phrygian Sky really grabs at me, but The English Lady and the Knight really chokes me up. And if I really think about I could say some thing great about all the songs!! I listen to the album over and over again so things can change
Beneath A Phrygian Sky is very very beautiful, i can´t stop to listen it, is a great work of inspiration, when i listen the album for first time and i listen Beneath A Phrygian Sky was my favorite, again and again and again...only listenning that master piece, i will listen the other song after, but now only Beneath A Phrygian Sky, lorenna, thanks is the best gift that you have given me in this chirstmas, whit all my heart thaks

And (I forgot to add this to previous post) Saturday night I had a dream where my daughter and I were riding a train and "An Ancient Muse" played over head. My daughter and I were stapling pages of the lyrics of the albumn together then a woman sat with us and we talked of Loreena. It was a beautiful dream up to the point when 2 missionaries came to us and distracted me from my work. The music stopped and I woke up. The music has made a deep impression on me and it is more complex then previous recordings.
One song reminds me of Marco Polo, one reminds me of Bonnie Swans and one I sang after I turned off the cd and I started singing The Lady of Shallott instead. The English Ladye and the Scotish Knight reminds me of my friend who fell in love with a Scottish lad. Incantation shends shivers down my spine. Powerful music that we have waited a long time for. It was well worth the wait.
Beneath a Phrygian Sky - it's the best song I ever heard, so I feel at this moment. It gives insight about God that is acceptable for me. It gives encouragement without being plain, and I like the music, the different parts that are involved.

Caravanserai was the starting point for me, I saw the video by Amazon, and I liked it so much that I bought all the CDs I didn't had <all with the exception of "Visit">.
My favorite song of the CD is Penelope Song with its beautiful melody followed by Kecharitomene. This instrumental brings to my mind Loreena's research of the first Celts from northern China to Eastern Europe to the Crusades and the crossroads of all cultures as they relate to Anna Comnena. I can see a music video of the history of all these cultures and the crossroads where Anna ends her days. The music tells the story.
Hi
I have listened to An Ancient Muse several times
and I can't say there is one song that has become my favourite as yet. I am sure that will happen at some point though.
Loreens McKennitt's music always leads me to a very spiritual, personal place.

Hang on...what about Incantation, The Gates of Istanbul, The Englidh Ladye and the Knight, Kecharitomne, Sacred Shabbat, and Never-Ending Road?

personally, I can't decide between the last two songs...with all the others coming in a tied close second!
Hi Jill....Hard question!!!! Probably my favorite is Caravanserai but really Beneath a phyrygian Sky and Penelope´s song are amazing too...like Caravanserai. If i am happy...Caravanserai is my choise. If i am sad...penelope´s song...if I am dreaming....Phyrygian Sky...
I love An ancient muse album!!!!!
