The 180g edition of Live At the Royal Albert Hall is issued in a two lp set and packaged in a gatefold sleeve.

Originally released on compact disc and via digital services in November 2019, Live At the Royal Albert Hall offers a substantially different repertoire from any of Loreena's previous in-concert releases.

Includes seven songs that had never previously been released as live tracks, six of which were drawn from her most recent studio recording, Lost Souls.

All 20 songs from the 2019 edition are included in this two lp set and are arranged in a brand new sequence to guarantee the best possible audio fidelity across all four sides of vinyl.

The performance at London’s storied Royal Albert Hall was part of McKennitt’s spring 2019 European tour and to celebrate the occasion she brought in five special guest musicians to augment her core band: renowned, and since sadly deceased, master Egyptian percussionist Hossam Ramzy, Daniel Casares, of Spain, one of the top flamenco guitarists in the world, and Canadians Ben Grossman on hurdy-gurdy, bodhran, accordion and percussion, and Ian Harper on Uilleann pipes, bombard, the Turkish clarinet, flutes and whistles. Spanish musician Ana Alcaide played nyckelharpa.
