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!

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, Rafał ( 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!

Well this was worth the wait. Arrived in good condition, one small bend in a corner. Cleaned and treated the record as usual on new discs and started with side one. Amazing tone and dynamics. The ability to hear the layers of instruments one of the many attributes of vinyl that I love. I heard a whole section of percussion during ''Between the Shadows'' that I have never heard/noticed before and the vocals that LM does during ''Lady of Shallot" is just spell binding. Thank you LM and the...

Gina- I would get a copy as soon as you can, even if you don't own a turntable as of yet. They will not be around forever. There appear to be some good value tables from a company called U-Turn Audio here is the USA. Not sure where you are, but used tables are around also. Happy listening.

Thanks, I do have a great turntable and stereo equipment, I just need a needle. I do have a huge vinyl collection that is 30 plus years old and even have some albums that are very rare. I live in Washington, US. am planning on hunting down a needle then setting up the turntable again as the equipment has changed a lot since the last time. I even have an old reel to reel that I like to use when I'm working on other projects and don't want to keep turning the album over. I do love the art work...

It's not hard to get the proper replacement needle or replace the cartridge. I am in the Santa Cruz Mtns. in Calif or I would offer to help. Hang on to that reel to reel, very big in the audio circles. Just listened to The Visit while enjoying a beverage as the sun set. Happy listening, Chris.

It sounds like you had a beautiful evening. That's just another reason I love Loreena, she makes my world beautiful. And I've made some special friends through this message board too that make my life wonderful. I appreciate your kind words. I do plan on keeping all my stereo equipment, even the big speakers that now sit in the garage doing nothing as we have newer surround sound speakers in the media room. If you are wondering, yes, I just had my coffee, and I'm just rambling on. Sorry....

Secret Sky (AKA Loreena's band without Loreena)

Jesse ·
Hello fellow Loreenakateers, I just made a rather interesting discovery of a new trio that have formed out of some very familiar faces - Caroline Lavelle, Brian Hughes, and Hugh Marsh! Collectively, they call themselves 'Secret Sky' and have already released a self-titled album! The album in question also features guest musicians Tal Bergman on drums and Tim Landers on bass - both of whom are of course also regular members of Loreena's band. I've had a quick listen - they sound GOOOOOOD!

I'm surprised no one has made a thread about this yet! At long last, one of Loreena's signature releases, "The Visit", is being reissued on vinyl to celebrate the album's 25th anniversary. Many fans consider this record a favorite, and it also marks when Loreena began to explore musical elements from other parts of the world beyond the more Western Celtic traditions. http://loreenamckennitt.com/shop/?dept=842 I can't wait to hear the exotic melodies of "All Souls Night", the calm nature of...

Hi Loreenakateers!

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, I was on the website and heard the song "Searching for Lambs". I like cello very much and I know that Caroline Lavelle is a really gifted musician! The song sounds very similar to the songs of Loreena McKennitt. That´s the reason why I think that Loreena´s music is unique.... I wish "Secret Sky" all the best, they are great performers, unquestionably - but, I beg your pardon, I want to stay loyal to Loreena....! Christine

Hello Im writing this because i experience being transported when i listen to Loreena’s music. I have studied our different Bodies and according to some Mystery School Teachings, related to Ancient Masters, the Soul carries within it memories of past lives. Also, as Ive become more familiar with my own soul i get glimpses of what i could describe as past life experiences. Something in the song “Never Ending Road” inspires me to sense that Ms. Loreena may have connected beyond the ‘veil’ of...

Hello Claire, what you have written sounds a little bit strange to me, although I think I´m able to understand what you mean! The thought that the Soul carries within it the memories of past lives is fascinating! I believe that intuitive knowledge is passed on from generation to generation. Some wisdom disappears because people have lost this intuitive knowledge. For that other knowledge is produced. In former generations for instance, knowledge about the raising of children was passed on to...

Hello Christine! Thanks for engaging me. I appreciate your thoughts on our intuitive knowledge being passed down in an ‘unspoken’ manner. I get it. It’s true, ‘wisdom of the old’ can disappear if it’s not shared. I remember the first time I saw Ms. McKennitt perform she mentioned in her ‘Book of Secrets’ tour a story of a monk whom had carried a lost book of the Bible with him to be reprinted. That stimulated me to research what I could find about books left out of the King James Version.

Hi Claire, I never heard from Baird T. Spalding before (Spalding, not Spaulding )!

Hello again Christine I just remembered I wanted to mention I went to the Napal and Tibet (mostly in the mountains) in search of Master Babaji. I had an unusual experience on night teetering on a mountainside, which I believe was a visitation. That led me to look into now day Mystery schools that study the Master’s teachings. If you have experiences to share I’m open. Take care, Claire

Hello Ravenlyn, thank you very much for your dedicated words! I agree with you that Secret Sky is a very passionate band, new for me because I didn´t know them, but also wonderful music indeed. By the way, I also appreciate "Secret Garden" with Fionnuala Sherry and Rolf Lovland and their band. But as far as the depth of the thoughts, the expression of the music and the charisma of the musicians themselves are concerned, Loreena MkKennitt remains unsurpassed for me....!
