A Midwinter Night's Dream (2008) features 8 recordings by Loreena McKennitt inspired by seasonal favourites, blended with 5 songs from A Winter Garden (1995).
The first vinyl edition of these recordings was released in a 5000 copy, 180g black vinyl limited edition pressing in 2016 which has long since sold out. This 2022 pressing is available in a 140g transparent red edition with the complete original artwork including a four-page 12 x 12 booklet containing sleeve notes and lyrics.
The winter and holiday-themed album features five tracks from McKennitt’s 1995 EP, A Winter Garden: Five Songs For The Season, and eight additional songs recorded for the original release of A Midwinter Night's Dream on compact disc in 2008.
This much-loved collection of Christmas and winter themed recordings is both expansive and exotic. Featuring middle-eastern and Celtic textures throughout, there are well-known offerings including The Holly & The Ivy and God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen as well as lesser-known classics such as Emmanuel sung in Latin, and Noel
Nouvelet! sung in Old French.
