Numbered, Limited Edition 180g Vinyl!

Pressed on 180g vinyl from the original high resolution masters, Loreena McKennnitt’s “A Midwinter Night’s Dream” features an array of Loreena's wide musical influences, ranging from Celtic to classical to Middle Eastern. McKennitt’s eclecticism shines through in the mysticism of The Holly and the Ivy, the exotic Eastern arrangements of God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen, the Latin-sung Emmanuel and the North French/African rendering of Noël Nouvelet!, sung in Old French.

Expanded from the 5-track 1995 EP "A Winter Garden: Five Songs for the Season," the newly titled album (originally released in 2008) now contains 13 holiday classics.

"Canadian singer/composer/harpist Loreena McKennitt's lush Celtic-infused balladry and worldbeat sensibilities lend themselves well to holiday music...The songs are immaculately produced as always, and McKennitt's predilection for Eastern mysticism and unique instrumentation keeps them from falling into the usual seasonal clichés." -James Christopher Monger,
