Loreena McKennitt - Parallel dreams
Loreena writes in the CD booklet:
Beyond the transportation into fantasy, dreams served as a vehicle through which we have integrated our conscious and subconscious, the real and the surreal, the powerful and the intangible.
The dreams found in this recording span a wide range from the contemporary to the historical as in the Romeo and Juliet story of Jeannie and her lover in Annachie Gordon; the singular as in the little Dublin street girl who dreams of having a home; to the plural in those who dream of freedom as reflected in Breaking the silence; or the earth's yearning for release from the oppression of the human hand in Ancient pines. In the Huron Beltane fire dance I have tried to recall the reverence for dreams of the North American first peoples and the early Celts. If there is a recurrent thread which runs through these dreans it is one of yearning toward love, liberty and integration. Of all the variations of dreams we may have, these surely are or parallel dreams.
