The new album

I admit, I am impatient.

But we're talking about Loreena here, so I have every right to be.

Actually I thought that a PRE-ORDER ITEM would be shipped on Nov. 15th. Now Maple Music says that "shipment will begin Nov. 26th" and it MIGHT take 10 days from there till the order arrives.

AND when I ordered the album (CD bundle, the new album plus A Midwinter Night's dream, AND the Vinyl LP), the offer read that I'd receive a link for free download on Nov. 12th.
Which is today.
And I rushed home from university to find - nothing.

I am a BIT disappointed.
Let me see if we can post them in the Explore The Music section on our website, as we have done with all the other recordings.

Anyway Mark..does the album have the booklet with the lyrics?
Oh, seems that I'm the only one who didn't receive the 112kbps mp3! I don't understand (and I bought the cd AND the vinyl) Confused

I went to my 'Order History' and the status was like this: "Status: Your order has not been processed yet." - but I don't know if it's because they didn't send the cd yet.

I had to download from other site... i didn't want to do that.. but was very nervous and anxious! Frowner (I'm not proud of it - actually, I'm pretty upset, after Loreena's speech about Copyrights, I downloaded her album Frowner )

Give a hug on behalf of me to Loreena Mark! Smiler

The booklet has no lyrics but "lukehatton" has kindly gathered the lyrics for us here:

Only that it seems Loreena's version of "Death of Queen Jane" is quite a different one. So here's what I can hear with my bear ears, yet there must be mistakes since English isn't my mother tongue.

7 - The Death of Queen Jane

Queen Jane lay in labour
For nine days or more,
Till her women grew so tired
They could no longer bear

Good women, good women,
Good women that ye may be,
Will you open my right side,
And find my babe.

"Oh no!" cried the women
That's a thing I'll never can be
We will send for King Henry
And hear what he may say

King Henry was asent for,
King Henry did come,
Saying what has here you, my lady:
Your eyes they look so dim.

King Henry, King Henry,
Will you do one thing for me,
That's to open my right side
And find my babe.

"Oh no!" cried King Henry
That's a thing I'll never do
If I lose the flower of England
I shall lose the branch too

There was fiddling, I am dancing,
On the day the babe was born,
But poor Queen Jane beloved
Lay cold as a stone.

I have to say I really love this album so much, that's just what I dreamed for. Other artists I love all disappointed me with their recent releases these years, but Loreena NEVER fails. This album is pure magic.
The links were sent around 10:00 PM on Friday. Did you subsequently receive your email with the download link?

As you noted, we are still waiting for delivery of the vinyl and this will be shipped as soon as it is received.

If you are still missing the link or have any queries about your order, I would suggest emailing Maple Music justcurious@maplemusic.com noting your name and your order number and the difficulty you are having.

I hope this helps.

No, it was already on the site:
"Vinyl:"
This is a pre-order product scheduled to ship on Friday, November 26 (ship date subject to change).

"More Pre-order Details.":
Q: What happens if I have pre-order items and regular items in the same order?

A: When combining pre-order items and regular items in one order, the entire order will be shipped within 48 hours of the release date of the pre-order item. For example, if you have an order with a regular item and a pre-order with a release date of May 15th, then the entire order will be shipped within 48 hours of May 15th.


No problem with that... I just didn't receive the link, but I sent an email to Maple Music today.
Thanks Lica. You're doing my job for me.

Congratulations Big Grin I guess mine will arrive in a few days too. It's really difficult to wait for a CD I love so much, since the mp3 version is so lo-fi.

Unfortunately not Wink. I have not received it yet either (Netherlands). And now the postmen are on strike too for a couple of days, so I will still have too wait, probably till next week. Frowner

Thanks. Big Grin But it's weird usually it is not a matter of distance, from my own experience, it takes 5 days for a package from UK to me, but 10 days from Germany, both by ragular airmail.

BTW, who cried while listening to this album? I did, when I heard the harp tunes on "On a Bright May Morning" and Loreena's emotional voices on "Death of Queen Jane", my heart broke, but in a good way...
