Just received the CD version of Lost Souls in the mail today--and I LOVE it! Can't choose a favorite piece yet--but I adore the fact 'Ages Past, Ages Hence' (which I used to know as 'The Pagan Trees') finally got properly recorded--it's wonderful!
As for any likeness in this song to Kate Bush--I never did 'get' her. Tried listening to various things of hers, hoping I'd like her music, but guess it's just not for me...
I'm too old and broke to travel and attend out-of-town concerts now, so my life boils down to online PC use, and buying any CDs and DVDs I want if I can find or order them. Am very old-school here--no TV, smart phone, or Facebook account.
Loreena, you have put out a wonderful body of work over the years--you've much to be proud of! (I've acquired everything but the compilations, which I never felt I needed.) So if indeed this turns out to be your 'final album' then so be it--what a wonderful career you've had! I wish you every continued success.
