Five-Part Loreena McKennitt Series: THE VISIT

(queued post)

As I mentioned at the beginning, this was the first one I fell in love with. Comparing it to others now, it feels a bit more serious and like a celebration of very old, old England, including before it was England. Tennyson is the most modern inspiration on the CD. The closest after that: Shakespeare.

Most recently, this album reestablished itself as a favorite when we listened to it on loop during a day trip to southern Minnesota with about 3 hours of driving, so now I think of it as backdrop to scenic highway roads.
