I beleive that I see she is very touched by this song. Or am I just putting more into it?
Or is it the pixles on YouTube?
No!
There's something about her body language...

I feel the same, she is really touched singing this song. But is lovely. It touched me too^^

Yes is it not? Especially with the fact that she is barely moving Big Grin I like the video very much, in all its simplicity. I think she should make music videos for more songs, like she did with The mummers' dance. I feel I gotta watch NYE...
Enough about that, because it is really the music that matters, and I fell in love with Seven rejoices of Mary just the other day, so I got back on the forum to see if there were some like-minded people around, hahaha! I can always count on it.
The intro of the song makes me feel so happy, I do not know why. Maybe it's the harp. Wink

... sing Father, Son and Holy ghost to all eternity!

Music has always played an important role in Loreena's own holiday traditions and it is her hope that it will in yours too.

Singing of carols has been always a very important point of Christmas celebration in Polish families. The celebration starts in the Christmas Eve evening with ceremonial supper, after which we sing our wonderful carols, that we like very much. They are sometimes very cheerful, sometimes lirycal… many of them have profound lyric. We, Poles, are very attached to our, Polish carols.
That, about I mentioned above, was the reason why I was very curious about AMND. I have heard the record many times and like it very, very much… and more and more. The Seven Rejoices of Mary touches my heart always when I hear it. I’m very glad that Loreena made the video available to us. It is a great pleasure to see her again and to see her singing just this song. Thank you, Loreena…
…and blessed now be she,
who sing the seven long verses,
in honour of our Lady.

Betty, I commend your taste!

For me, this is simply one of the best songs ever!

Every time I hear it I'm shivering...

Thank you, Loreena for this lovely song and for the new album, a truly Christmas gift!

New album from Loreena= New masterpiece

Saluti, amica!
What a delight, to find that Quinlan Road has placed the YouTube offering of this song being recorded right on News and Views! I really enjoy the way Loreena decided to arrange the song, and I especially like hearing it sung to the same tune as 'Star of the County Down'. It's not the only tune which has historically been used for the song, but it's a wonderful, merry little choice. Smiler

Hello - I'm new, but couldn't resist jumping right in when I saw a discussion on "The Seven Rejoices of Mary." (Still trying to work the italics) I bought this CD the day it came out, after waiting on tenderhooks for it. I immediately liked this carol, and now, dearly love it. As I play cello and violin, the instrumental arrangement was a lovely as the vocals. Brava,Ms. McKennitt

Noël Nouvelet! shares its melody with an easter-themed song called Green Blade. I don't think it's as well known as The Star of the County Down, but I recognized both! anyone else?

I was looking at a map of Ireland recently, and spotted County Down, as well as countless other places from songs including Tipperary, Limerick, Wexford Carrickfergus, Kilkenny, Antrim and Clare (the last five all feature in the titles or lyrics of some of Loreena's songs!)
Hi everybody!!

I didn´t know that the melody of Noël Nouvelet is the same in other songs. Anyway, the melody is just wonderful.

Thanks for this information!!^^

PS: I knew that some songs of Loreena include places from Ireland, but I really din´t know that Limerick, Antrim and Kilkenny are part of them. Please, Jesse, could you tell me in which song you find this references?¿? Thank you!!^^
Wow, someone's done his homework. Take a look in the map at the coast in the north of Ireland (I hope I am not telling you wrong. Geography is not my best subject) and you will also find a place called Malin Head. Hihi.

Cello: welcome!

well, Limerick isn't, but a 'limerick' is a type of poem. Antrim is mentioned in Bonny Portmore and Kilkenny is in Carrickfergus

thanks for the additional geographic information, Malin! I'll look into that.

I FOUND IT!!! Big Grin
it looks to me like it's the northernmost point of Ireland! that's funny. I haven't yet found a place called "Jesse"Frowner however, it is amazing what strange names you can find looking at a map. I've found a town called "Chop" in Ukraine and one called "Split" in Croatia (at least, I think it was Croatia).

how does it feel sharing your name with a place in Ireland?
There are some amazing names alright :O
This probably sounds like an idiotic question..byt how is your name pronounced, Jesse? (Next time Iook at a map I will keep my eyes open for a place named Jesse Big Grin)


...I just have to tell you that before I really cared to listened through all of LMKs songs properly (must have been ages ago) I though that Bonny Bortmore was the name of a girl Big Grin
Oh, and I though that Annachie was a girl's name too!

You'll never know...

Perhaps some day you'll find a place named after you in Sweden or Denmark!! Big Grin (Malin or I might name something in honor of you! Big Grin )


Lots ot wishes for a happy year

I wouldn't recommend searching for my name on a map, you'd be wasting your time (I've already checked the index of my atlas)

Jesse
do you have the authority to do that? I doubt that the Swedish or Danish authorities would allow something to be named after someone that they've never heard of before, although, I am from the same country as your Crown Princess, Anxious 2! (hey, I guess that means we're sort of related!RazzerWink)
maybe if I win a Nobel prize of something, though I have no idea what for!
