Loreena McKennitt continues to celebrate her 30th anniversary as a recording artist with the vinyl release of her 2009 cross-cultural collection of seasonal music, A Midwinter Night’s Dream.
A Midwinter Night’s Dream will be available from November 17 in a global limited edition of 5,000 individually numbered copies pressed at the Record Industry plant in the Netherlands on 180g vinyl from the original high resolution masters. About the release Loreena says:
We are delighted to bring this recording into the vinyl format. As someone who grew up with the beautiful and exquisite sonic experience of vinyl, I think those who cherish music in this way will find these archival releases illuminating. Additionally, given that we make so many decisions at tracking stage to enhance and protect the fidelity of the recording, it is gratifying from an artist’s stand point that this music can be appreciated beyond the compression of an MP3, comments McKennitt.
A Midwinter Night’s Dream is the fourth in a series of collector’s vinyl limited edition releases since 2010’s The Wind That Shakes The Barley.
The albums is available here.
