Loreenas notes on the songs of An Ancient Muse: Introduction. The first stepping stone on this journey of discovery was my exploration of the Celts and their history, and the many roads leading off from theirs, both historically and geographically. Ever-mindful of the weight of history behind us that allows us to draw lessons from its ancient voice, I have not wavered in my conviction that we are a culmination of our collective histories and that there should be more to bind us together than tear us apart. Nor have I ceased to hope that in striving toward harmonious, integrated diversity, we will be guided by collective beliefs that will be life affirming at their core. Tracklist: 1. İncantation 2. The Gates of İstanbul 3. Caravanserai 4. The English Ladye and The Knight 5. Kecharitomene 6. Penelope's Song 7. Sacred Ancient Muse is the seventh full-length studio album of the Canadian singer, songwriter, accordionist, harpist, and pianist, Loreena McKennitt. It was released on November 20, 2006 internationally, and November 21, 2006 in the United States and Canada. It was her first studio album after a 9-year gap. It has sold over a half a million copies worldwide since its release. McKennitt's records this is her first set of new material since 1997's Book of Secrets tend to play like independent soundtracks to National Geographic documentaries - kind of like a more ornate, expensive version of Dead Can Dance. An Ancient Muse may break little new ground for McKennitt, but it won't disappoint longtime fans. Loreena McKennitt - An Ancient Muse 2006. To favorites 5 Download album. Listen album. Loreena McKennitt. В 99-м году МакКеннитт подготовила концертник по материалам последнего тура, после чего практически исчезла из шоу-бизнеса, очень редко появляясь на публике и участвуя только в благотворительных акциях. Лишь через семь лет певица смогла снова взяться за работу. Ее долгожданное возвращение разыгрывается в эфемерно красивых, утонченных декорациях альбома An Ancient Muse, наполненного эхом разных культур, исторических эпох и музыкальных традиций. An Ancient Muse is eclectic celtic - singercomposer Loreena McKennitt's highly-anticipated first new studio recording in nine years. Taking up where her previous work left off, McKennitt fuses the melodic sensibility of Celtic Balladry with musical traditions from Greece, Turkey, Spain, and beyond. It's been nearly a decade since Loreena McKennitt's last studio album, The Book of Secrets, but An Ancient Muse picks up the caravan exactly where she left off on her mystical journey through the cultures of the Middle East and northern Sahara.
