Every journey brings its own surprises


She's from Morden, Manitoba, in Canada, is Loreena McKennitt, her brother still farms down that way. She's come along way, many journeys taken, many miles covered, in place and time, distance and space. Roads taken...destinations arrived at...we look around and realise this was not the original one...somewhere different, the excitement of exploration.....a grove of trees.....gone now....a cathedral, built it is said, on ground that was holy, before ever Christianity arrived, and the voices of the ages resonate. Words of W.B Yeats, William Shakespeare, the spirit of
Charles Dickens walks with us....the mask, the mirror, the sounds of a market, the horse on the road taking pilgrims...these are her landscapes, they are conjoured before us and we are there with her, along the dusty trails, up over the mountains and there before us an ancient cathedral and the chanting voices. You are there. We are there............. we begin with The Visit
