A Midwinter Night’s Dream features an array of Loreena McKennnitt’s wide musical influences, ranging from Celtic to classical to Middle Eastern. McKennitt’s eclecticism shines through in the mysticism of The Holly And The Ivy, the exotic Eastern arrangements of God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen, the Latin-sung Emmanuel and the North French/African rendering of Noël Nouvelet!, sung in Old French.

 

 

  • Limited Edition (5000 Units)
  • Numbered Edition
  • 180 Gram Vinyl
  • Pressed at Record Industry, Holland
  • Mastered by Bob Ludwig at Gateway Mastering
  • Vinyl Cut by Jeff Wolpert

 

 

Expanded from the 5-track 1995 EP "A Winter Garden: Five Songs for the Season," the newly titled album (originally released in 2008) now contains 13 holiday classics.

 

"Canadian singer/composer/harpist Loreena McKennitt's lush Celtic-infused balladry and worldbeat sensibilities lend themselves well to holiday music...The songs are immaculately produced as always, and McKennitt's predilection for Eastern mysticism and unique instrumentation keeps them from falling into the usual seasonal clichés." ~ James Christopher Monger, All Music


Loreena continues to celebrate her 30th anniversary as a recording artist with the vinyl release of her 2009 cross-cultural collection of seasonal music,

A Midwinter Night’s Dream.

 

A Midwinter Night’s Dream is available in a global limited edition of just 5,000 individually numbered copies pressed at the Record Industry plant in the Netherlands on 180g vinyl from the original high resolution masters.

 

“We are delighted to bring this recording into the vinyl format. As someone who grew up with the beautiful and exquisite sonic experience of vinyl, I think those who cherish music in this way will find these archival releases illuminating. Additionally, given that we make so many decisions at tracking stage to enhance and protect the fidelity of the recording, it is gratifying from an artist’s stand point that this music can be appreciated beyond the compression of an MP3.” comments McKennitt.
