    She is one of the best singers and instrumentalists in the world. We don't need god's when people like her are around.

    Did you listen to her song? She is as close to divinely gifted as anyone I ever heard about, at least in the arts.

    Had you ever heard of her before this post? She has sold 14 million records world wide, most on her own label. She has put out at least 32 CD's and she is not yet 60 years old, still going extremely strong. Plays harp, piano, accordion, writes most of her own songs, puts poems like Keats to music.

    The point Robbie was making was that being divinely gifted requires a god.

    I have listened to her many times, although i am not a great fan of carols, but ironically more secular themes like she moved through the fair etc

    Loreena McKennitt -The Dark Night of The Soul - St. John of the Cross

    Upon a dark night
    The flame of love was burning in my breast
    And by a lantern bright
    I fled my house while all in quiet rest

    Shrouded by the night
    And by the secret stair I quickly fled
    The veil concealed my eyes
    While all within lay quiet as the dead

    Oh night thou was my guide
    Of night more loving than the rising sun
    Oh night that joined the lover
    To the beloved one
    Transforming each of them into the other

    Upon that misty night
    In secrecy, beyond such mortal sight
    Without a guide or light
    Than that which burned so deeply in my heart
    That fire t'was led me on
    And shone more bright than of the midday sun
    To where he waited still
    It was a place where no one else could come


    Within my pounding heart
    Which kept itself entirely for him
    He fell into his sleep
    Beneath the cedars all my love I gave
    From o'er the fortress walls
    The wind would his hair against his brow
    And with its smoothest hand
    Caressed my every sense it would allow


    I lost myself to him
    And laid my face upon my lover's breast
    And care and grief grew dim
    As in the morning's mist became the light
    There they dimmed amongst the lilies fair
    There they dimmed amongst the lilies fair
    There they dimmed amongst the lilies fair

    YouTube

    'Lullaby' ~ Loreena McKennitt

    "O for a voice like thunder, and a tongue
    To drown the throat of war! When the senses
    Are shaken, and the soul is driven to madness,
    Who can stand? When the souls of the oppressèd
    Fight in the troubled air that rages, who can stand?
    When the whirlwind of fury comes from the Throne of God,
    when the frowns of his countenance
    Drive the nations together, who can stand?
    When Sin claps his broad wings over the battle,
    And sails rejoicing in the flood of Death;
    When souls are torn to everlasting fire,
    And fiends of Hell rejoice upon the slain,
    O who can stand? O who hath causèd this?
    O who can answer at the throne of God?
    The Kings and Nobles of the Land have done it!
    Hear it not, Heaven, thy Ministers have done it!"

    The next one to play on that link was Alison Krauss and she has a really great voice but she sounded a bit thin compared to Loreena's version. Loreena covers a lot of religious themes but also ancient druid and other pagan themes also. I just posted the carol because of the absolute beauty of her voice on that song.

    I have around 5 or 6 of her albums. I had figured you already knew of her. Her voice is indeed angelic. My favorite has to be "The Mummer's Dance" from The Book of Secrets. Haunting in its beauty. I also like "The Highwayman" from the same album.

    The voice that you want is Kate Rusby, it has a resonance that no other contemporary British or Irish folk singer can carry. Let this melt you my man, its natural, full and in my opinion does not suffer from the same over production that marrs some of Loreena's recordings.

    Yes, have listened to Kate for years, smokey clear voice! I agree with you about Loreena's overproduction, sometimes it mars the performance. She sounds best when she is by herself and just her harp or piano and maybe a fiddle but her later productions are like hollywood it seems. It has certainly made her a sizable fortune however.
