Regular price £15.00 Sale

Loreena McKennitt’s own Quinlan Road record label continues to celebrate her 30th anniversary as a recording artist with the release on vinyl for the first time of her 2009 cross-cultural collection of seasonal music, A Midwinter Night’s Dream.

Available as a global limited edition of just 5,000 copies pressed at the Record Industry plant in the Netherlands on 180g vinyl from the original high resolution masters.

Her second full-length seasonal recording, A Midwinter Night’s Dream features an array of Loreena's wide musical influences, ranging from Celtic to classical to Middle Eastern. Her 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.

A successful self-managed maverick since her early days busking on the streets of Toronto, McKennitt’s eclectic Celtic blend of pop, folk and world music has sold over 14 million albums worldwide. Her recordings have achieved gold, platinum and multi-platinum status in 15 countries on four continents. She has twice been nominated for a Grammy Award and has won two Junos, as well as a Billboard International Achievement Award.
