Loreena McKennitt- The Journey So Far

Loreena McKennitt- The Journey So FarWith 14 million albums sold, a pair of Juno Awards and two GRAMMY® nominations, Loreena McKennitt has established a singular career with her groundbreaking blend of Celtic sounds and World Beat. This career is now documented on The Journey So Far—The Best of Loreena McKennitt

“The Journey So Far” features a selection of 12 GREATEST HITS curated by McKennitt herself, including “The Mummers’ Dance” and “Bonny Portmore,” a traditional Irish folk song included on the soundtrack to Highlander III—The Sorcerer, as well as “Dante’s Prayer,” which led to her citation in Dan Brown’s best-selling Inferno. The set also includes “The Mystic’s Dream,” which was used extensively in The Mists of Avalon, a critically acclaimed mini-series starring Anjelica Huston. She garnered double-platinum honors for 1997’s The Book of Secrets and its Top 20 crossover radio hit, “The Mummers’ Dance”.

When I look back, I marvel at how rich my journey has been,” said McKennitt.One of the motivating factors in putting out a best-so-far album was to introduce the music to parts of the world that, for one reason or another, have not had ready access to my catalogue over the years.
