I first came to Spain in search of the Celts. I was surprised to learn that Celtic tribes had lived in Galicia, in northwestern Spain, before being pushed north towards Britain and Ireland by invading Roman armies. In fact, Galicians still play bagpipes, and there are aspects of their music which almost sound Scottish or Irish. So it was this pan-Celtic connection that led me to the door of Spain and a whole new path of discovery.
The civilization that one feels here knows no borders. But as the philosopher says, A good traveller has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving. For me, a journey is a never-ending road. A discovery that there is so much more to bind us together than to tear us apart. These are the dreams that we hold in the palms of our hands. Bueso Daniel Ortiz. Enrique Moratalla D.

And down the river's dim expanse Like some bold seer in a trance, Seeing all his own mischance - With a glassy countenance. And at the closing of the day She loosed the chain and down she lay; The broad stream bore her far away, The Lady of Shalott.
Heard a carol, mournful, holy, Chanted loudly, chanted lowly, Till her blood was frozen slowly, And her eyes were darkened wholly,. For ere she reach'd upon the tide The first house by the water-side, Singing in her song she died, The Lady of Shalott.
Under tower and balcony, By garden-wall and gallery, A gleaming shape she floated by, Dead-pale between the houses high,.
Who is this? And what is here? And in the lighted palace near Died the sound of royal cheer; And they crossed themselves for fear,. Please click here if you are not redirected within a few seconds. On either side of the river lie Long fields of barley and of rye, That clothe the world and meet the sky; And thro' the field the road run by To many-towered Camelot; And up and down the people go, Gazing where the lilies blow Round an island there below, The island of Shalott.
She had a small acting role in the film Road to the Lemon Grove , as the voice of God. McKennitt's music has generally been classified as World or Celtic music even though it contains aspects and characteristics of music from around the globe and is sometimes classified as folk music in record stores. Before McKennitt composes any music, she engages in considerable research on a specific subject which then forms the general concept of the album.
Before creating Elemental and Parallel Dreams , she travelled to Ireland for inspiration from the country's history, folklore , geography and culture. The album The Mask and Mirror was preceded by research in Spain where she engaged in studying Galicia , a Celtic section of Spain, along with its abundant Arabic roots. According to the jacket notes, her album An Ancient Muse was inspired by travels among and reading about the various cultures along the Silk Road.
Late in the s, McKennitt created No Journey's End , a half-hour documentary , for American television in which she discussed the influences behind her music. The DVD included interviews with McKennitt, her band, crew, fans and professional colleagues from the Canadian music industry. In , McKennitt was involved in an acrimonious court case in England when her former friend and employee, Niema Ash, published a book, Travels with Loreena McKennitt: My Life as a Friend , that contained intimate details of their friendship.
McKennitt argued that much of the book contained confidential personal information that Ash had no right to publish. The English courts found that there had indeed been a breach of confidence and a misuse of McKennitt's private information, and the case is likely to set important precedents in the law of England and Wales on the privacy of public figures.
