Description

Some refer to it as the pinnacle of Canadian singer/composer Loreena McKennitt's career. Others know it as the album that includes her worldwide hit, "The Mummers' Dance." On the cusp of its 20th anniversary, Loreena's sixth album The Book of Secrets is being pressed on vinyl for the first time. Recorded at Peter Gabriel's Real World studios in England, The Book Of Secrets was written and researched all over the world, and, following its release in 1997, would go on to sell several million copies around the globe. It boasts a cast of over two dozen musical collaborators, and the eight songs contained therein lead the listener on unexpected journeys. Follow the music from ancient Byzantium to a puppet-maker's theatre in Sicily, or from the rocky island of Skellig Michael once inhabited by Irish monks in the Dark Ages to Venice and the journeys of Marco Polo, or from the tragic narrative of "The Highwayman" to the thunder of hooves across the Caucasus and the echoes of Dante's words found, unexpectedly, in a train journey across Siberia.
