All Souls Night & The Mummers’ Dance June 22, 2010

Posted by nrhatch in Music & Dance, Writing & Writers.

Loreena McKennitt performed The Lady of Shalott (posted yesterday), All Souls Night, and The Mummers’ Dance in Granada, Spain, at the magnificent Alhambra Palace.

McKennitt encourages listeners to explore the past, present, and future.

Using her own lyrics, as well as borrowed words from Shakespeare, Tennyson, and Sir Walter Scott, McKennitt weaves a rich tapestry for her audiences.

McKennitt, a Canadian singer and composer, has recorded seven CDs of Celtic-influenced music ~ her biggest hit came in 1998 with The Mummers’ Dance (from The Book Of Secrets).

Even if you block out Loreena McKennitt’s haunting voice and lyrics, her songs would be worth a listen . . . amazing instrumentals and Celtic flavor.

Aah . . . that’s better!

It is a lovely setting.

As I watch Loreena move from harp (Lady of Shalott) to piano (All Souls Night) to “accordian” (Mummers’ Dance) with ease, and hear her mesmerize the audience with her vocals . . . my decision NOT to pursue a career in music makes infinite sense. : )
