An ancient muse (Loreena McKennitt)


Recorded at Real World Studios and featuring a host of acclaimed musicians, An Ancient Muse proffers a treasure trove of instruments, from harp, hurdy-gurdy and accordion to oud, lyra, kanoun and nyckelharpa (the Scandinavian keyed fiddle). Highlights include the seductive rhythms and Silk Road influences of first single ``Caravanserai``; ``Penelope`s Song``, a paean to steadfast love; and Loreena`s musical setting of Sir Walter Scott`s poem of star-crossed romance, ``The English Ladye And The Knight``. Together, the nine songs that comprise An Ancient Muse conjure up a wide world`s worth of human stories that are as unique as they are unforgettable.
