Loreena McKennitt Nights From The Alhambra on Numbered Limited Edition 180g 2LP

Nights from the Alhambra is an enchanting musical performance, set beneath the stars in the breathtaking Moorish heart of medieval Spain. Captured live in September 2006, singer/composer Loreena McKennitt takes listeners through the multi-textured landscapes of her wonderful catalogue, from traditional Celtic ballads to literary narratives and highlights from what was her most recent recording at the time, An Ancient Muse.

The performances were recorded in Granada, Spain at the Palacio de Carlos V in the Alhambra Palace historic monument over three nights. McKennitt is one of very few artists to have been granted the opportunity to perform in this breathtaking Unesco World Heritage site. The present vinyl collection features 18 recordings of Loreena’s best-loved songs from those shows, including “The Mummers’ Dance,” “Caravanserai,” “The Mystic’s Dream” and “The Lady Of Shalott,” performed with a host of musical colleagues.

"As performers, we know that the mysterious and thrilling chemistry between musicians and audience can make a special place of any stage. How much more mysterious and thrilling it was, then, to find ourselves assembling our instruments in the very heart of the Alhambra Palace, a place I have dreamed of performing in from the first time I walked among its enchanted walls. I believe that the real beauty of the Alhambra is that it holds our dreams of the eternal within its stones - that same eternal truth, perhaps, that we performers strive for when we share our songs and stories. I am honoured to share our nights in the Alhambra, and our musical journey, with you." - Loreena McKennitt
