Description
Recorded in an Ontario church and an Irish abbey, Loreena McKennitt's 1987 solo album is positively ethereal; with minimal arrangements based on harp and viol, the Canadian soprano's crystalline voice is kept front and center. Drawing on her own childhood memories of winter and the holiday season, McKennitt lends a personal touch to "The Wexford Carol," "Let All That to Mirth Are Inclined," "Balulalow," "Let Us the Infant Greet," and "The King," a duet with Cedric Smith. The Juno Award–winning singer also contributes three equally worthy originals, "Snow," "Banquet Hall," and "The Stockford Carol."

"McKennitt has succeeded in making a beautiful, haunting, and ambitious yuletide song cycle."—AllMusic.com
